before wanting to install something, you should check what you already have.
maybe you'll just reinstall the exact same IOS, so it's useless to try to do it and waste time on it.

Also, trying to follow random suggestion for random issues by other users on other forum, what's the point? your setup is different than their setup. don't try to follow outdated (and maybe bad) advices without knowing why it was suggested to that other user.
You are also probably trying to install outdated files with outdated program ? (or trying to install latest release when it's bad ! latest cIOS should not be used!)

first, follow the syscheck tutorial from my signature and post the result here.
