I had this problem before and I know all about it. This is what you need to
do. Switch the flash that's in bank one to bank two, copy smaller ios that
can fit on one 8 meg chip (i.e. 11.0) or any maintenance release of 11.0.
Then copy 12.0. You might be able to copy 12.0 without installing 11.0. Try
12 before trying a lesser version

 From experience, most parity occurrences are soft parity errors and can
usually be dismissed. If you have recently changed some hardware or have
moved the box, try reseating the affected part (DRAM, SRAM, NPE, RP, RSP, or
VIP). Frequent multiple parity occurrences signify faulty hardware.

I would try reseating the memory.....

Subject: Failed upgrade due to flash partition?


I am in the process of upgrading my IOS to a 2513 w/ 16/16. Originally it
only had 1 flash memory stick and 1 flash partition. After I inserted the
send 8 MB stick, "show flash" and "show version" displays 2 partitons. So I
went erased the 2nd partition and then went into "config t" and did a
"partitition flash 1" to have only 1 partition. Next I did a "copy tftp
flash", but the process failed in the middle.

I am not in ROM mode running the backup IOS. Everytime I try to do a "copy
tftp flash" now, I get the following error message:

Router(boot)#cop tft flas

System flash directory:
No files in System flash

Am I missing something obvious? Is it because I have not properly
re-partitioned? If so, how do I do that? Please help.
