The config-register defines how the boot process will occur. Usually we
have the default values of 0x2102 or 0x102 meaning that the
router/switch will take a look to the config and there usually we have a
"boot system flash device:filename" command. So in your
case i would do something like:

no boot system flash device:old_ios
boot system flash device:new_ios
boot system flash device:old_ios

Then confirm that everything looks fine with the "show bootvar" command.

You don't need to touch the bootflash. You are running in native mode
(not the old hybrid catos+ios mode) so you don't need the
MSFC2 file for nothing.

I have a question about these devices, I am a voice man not a R&S man so
my kungfu is not strong in this..

I am wanting to update the IOS on this and I am not quite sure on

Is the booting of this device controlled by the Sup-bootdisk ? I.e. if I
change the code in the configs to boot the new ios and
reload it should work ?

The question is this what is bootflash: used for? Should I also update
is as well ?
