Firmware for 8000 switch

I have a pair of 8000 switches that I want to update to the latest recommended firmware version.  I was able to bring them up to 7.1.2b1 but I get an error when updating to 7.2.1.


I've tried the straight v7.2.1 and also the a and b version.

all of them return the message when running firmwaredownload from the CLI: Cannot download the requested firmware because the firmware doesn't support this platform. Please enter another firmware path


according to this link:

and a couple of others I've seen, v7.2.1 should be compatible.  I'm downloading from HP.


Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
