Hello,
I updated the IOS on my catalyst 3750.
I had 12.1.11-AX and I upgraded to 12.1.19-EA1a

but looking at boot message I see this:

ROM: Bootstrap program is C3750 boot loader
BOOTLDR: C3750 Boot Loader (C3750-HBOOT-M) Version 12.1(11r)AX, RELEASE SOFTWARE
(fc1)

so looks like the boot loader is still the old one even if the os image
is the new one.
Anyone knows how to upgrade the boot loader or I Can safely continue
using it with newer OS images ?

thanks

Rick

Don't worry - the boot-loader is only used for
certain maintenance-operations [such as helping
out when you are loading new versions of IOS];
it plays no real part in the operation of the
router once it has loaded IOS proper.
