Hello Eh,
The last version to support the S200-24 is 7.1e2b4.  It looks like you should be able to upgrade it directly with the files here:
http://tech.extremenetworks.com/ftp/ftp_new.aspx?file=S200-71e2b4_Patch.zip

Check your BootROM version before upgrading.  If you need S200_boot_1_5.bin, let me know.  I didn't see it and will have to go digging.

If I recall there was a bundled image/bootrom if the S200 was running older boot rom... It rewrites memory allocation so it is a good idea to have a current back up ready just incase.. On restart you will see a lot of errors in the file as it re-works the configuration and fires up under newer image and bootrom.

You may be correct.  I don't see it in any of the internal software release folders I maintain, but when I built it, I didn't go that far back into the archives.
Regarding errors, this is in the release notes:

will see if I have any of the old release notes around when I get into office.... Look at what images Drew sent you and if any of them have a .wrtx instead of the frtx extension then that is an image with the auto bootroom upgrade ... you will be going from 4.9 to 5.1 ... once you have 5.1 you can take those to 7.8 images.  As far as direct replacements if you are only using layer 2 functions of the switch the 430 is good.  CPU is a bit small but we have several hundred out there.  You will gain a lot more functions and options when you have XOS switches... We had 500 or so 200's at one time and I dont recall any of them crashing on the upgrades but we did it with the Wrapper images and not a separate bootroom then image upgrade.  If you do the bootroom separate then you have to do that from console and trigger it during a boot cycle if I recall.... That is why you need to find the one with the wrapper to auto upgrade the boot so you can trigger the upgrade via the network and not have to touch each switch.  Good luck

I just logged into Esupport and you can get v784b1.Wxtr This is the last wrapper image that will upgrade a Summit 200 older than 7.3 to latest code and do an auto upgrade of the bootroom to 5.1... You should be able to get this if you have any support contract... The bootroom is there and the release notes... I guess if you can't get to them Drew will need to bundle them up for you.

Can you share the output of show version?  I'd like to make sure we're talking about the same set of equipment and files.  There may be something else I need to send.
