Hello all:

I am a newbee to cisco routers and switches. I have a Catalyst
WS-2924-XL switch without an IOS image, the promt is switch: . I
uploaded IOS file "c2900XL-h-mz-112.8-SA3" from another Catalyst
WS-2924-XL, but after downloading this file I am not able to boot the
switch, I am getting error message "error loading
c2900XL-h-mz-112.8-SA3, I even tried command "set BOOT
flash:c2900XL-h-mz-112.8-SA3", but no luck. When I do "dir flash:" I do
see the imported file. Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly
appreciated. Lastly, does any one know how to upload html directory to
tftp server, I could not upload by typing command "copy flash:html
tftp: .


Re: Catalyst WS-2924-XL IOS image
It seems to me that you are running an IOS on that switch if you can use DIR
and SET BOOT. If you didn't have an IOS you would boot ROMMON which is very

Commonly the set boot variable is not entered properly. Make sure your flash
is referred to as flash instead of bootflash. If it were bootflash you would
use 'set boot system bootflash:c2900XL-h-mz.112.8-SA3'.
