Firmware flashing

Firmware download from a TFTP is working.

There are a lot of images on http://emea.fortinet.net/fortinet/HDimg/ but none for this particular model.

The box refuses all files I tried thusfar:

Enter local address [192.168.1.188]: 192.168.2.1
MAC:00090FE41BF8
###############
Total 16515225 bytes data downloaded.
Verifying the integrity of the firmware image.
Wrong image for this model.
