    Using the Upgrade CompactFlash Card

    The 4-GB CompactFlash script shipped in the upgrade kit can be used to either (1) migrate a system running a previous operating system to CTPOS 7.0R1 and later, or (2) prepare a system for firstboot in CTPOS 7.0R1 or later.

    The CompactFlash script runs an application that checks for the proper BIOS and upgrades the BIOS if necessary. The application checks for proper FPGAs on the cards and daughter cards installed and upgrades them as necessary.

    When used to prepare a system for firstboot into CTPOS 7.0R1 or later, all cards and daughter cards intended to be run on the system should be installed before booting the flash for the first time.

    If the system is migrating from an old CompactFlash card running CTPOS 4.6R7 or 5.4R3 through 5.4R6, the application transfers all necessary information from the old CompactFlash card to the new CompactFlash card and leaves the system in a state with all configured and activated circuits running.

    Use one of the following procedures after completing either Upgrading with the PP310 Upgrade Kit or Upgrading with the PP332 Upgrade Kit.

    Migrating from a Previous Operating System

    You should see the following upgrade script output when you complete the steps described in Upgrading with the PP310 Upgrade Kit. The upgrade script output produced when you complete the steps described in Upgrading with the PP332 Upgrade Kit is very similar, and you must respond to the same prompts.

    This application will prepare the installed hardware for CTPOS 6.0R1. It will
    upgrade FPGAs if necessary, upgrade the bios if necessary, and can migrate
    the ID of a system running CTPOS 4.6R7 or 5.4R3. 
    
    This application will reboot the system multiple times. Please continue the 
    process through to completion. Failure to do so can leave the system in an
