How to Upgrade Cisco IOS Bootstrap

This topic is to discuss the following lesson:

why upgrade a bootstrap in the first place or what scenarios in which we need to upgrade the boostrap? Thanks Rene

Hi Don,

It’s not a common thing to do. It is possible that you need to do on an upgrade when you want to install a new IOS version. I also vaguely recall that the 1841 routers can boot from USB but only with a certain (newer) version of the bootstrap.
