Installing new 8.1.2 C-mode image

Currently Being Moderated



I have an  FAS2040 running DOT 8.1 7-mode. I'm going to wipe it out completely (data migration is not important for my project) and install 8.1 C-mode on it.


I've downloaded 812P1_e_image.tgz and have run "software update" and it appeared to simply install DOT 8.1.2 7-mode on the controller. I rebooted, and entered the Boot Menu, and reinitialized the disks (option 4), but once again, it came back up on 7-mode by default. I was expecting to be prompted for 7-mode or C-mode during the setup, but this did not happen.


What am I missing here? I have not been able to locate any documents or forum threads on how to install the C-mode software image. All comments, tips and insight on the process are very welcome here. Thanks!
