GS724TS: Unable to Upgrade Boot Code

Hardware Version:  00.00.01

Boot Version:  1.0.0.07

Software Version:  v3.1.0.1

 

I am aware of the instructions which include the step:  Select Firmware > File Management > File Download.

BUT my firmware does not have those options.

 

I have also tried using a tftp server.  I am able to upload the configuration, but I am unale to download. 

 

So, how do I install boot code version 1.0.1.5 ??

That solved it.  Everything is now updated.  Thanks for the help.

 

What I think I learned:

1.  SmartWizard does not work for boot upgrades.  The TFTP process is required.

2.  The TFTPD32 application worked fine as a local TFTP server, with the one caveat that it has to be closed and restarted again after every reboot of the GS752TS inorder to re-find everything.

3.  After a boot upgrade, a software reset is not sufficient.  A power-off reboot is required.

4.  For the Firmware upgrades, SmartWizard works well, and it automatically resets the switch after the upgrade.
