[HELP] TFTPDNLD -r from ROMMON on 1801 won't succeed

I have a 1801 Catalyst which is stuck in ROMMON;
I am unable to tftpdnld a new image to the flash memory, but connectivity to the tftp server is fine.
I want to boot the image from that server but get the following error message:
rommon 9 > tftpdnld -r

IP_ADDRESS: 192.168.0.7
IP_SUBNET_MASK: 255.255.255.0

Receiving c870-advipservicesk9-mz.124-15.T1.bin from 192.168.0.9 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
File reception completed.
TFTP flash copy: Invalid file header, copy terminated.
Reason: Wrong target platform OR corrupt file.

Err Code 0x5

I don't understand why it says "TFTP flash copy"...
Will I not be able to download the image to DRAM instead (and possibly run it from there?)?

Looks like you are using the wrong firmware image…

Oh! I am using an image from a different model router which is acting as tftp server.
I actually thought that images ware interchangeable and not limited to the individual model!

I guess that's what it is then- many thanks!

It worked with a c180x IOS image (although it still won't recognise the flash)...
Well, at least I learned something new

to recognizing the flash you may need to upgrade your rommon thru the IOS...

Nope, not by any means natphase.
