Re: How to add bitstream file with bootloader file(fsbl.elf) to PROGRAM THE FPGA in Xilinx SDK 2016.4 ?

I have already generated the bitstream file. But i would like to know how to add the bootloader file ( fsbl.elf ) along with the bit-stream file to program the FPGA.

 

As there is no SELECT option to add the boot loader file in the software configuration Menu. 

NOTE : I am using Xilinx SDK 2016.4 Version

Hi,

       There is no option to add bootloader file. Have a look at the image i have attached in the post. There is no SELECT or ADD option in software configuration menu to add bootloader file( fsbl.elf) in the PROGRAM THE FPGA window box .

 

Have a look at the 1st image i have got from Xilinx forum. There it shows the bootloader file in the software configuration menu.

Now see the 2nd image i have got from my SDK.  There is no option to add the bootloader file in PROGRAM THE FPGA window box under software configuration menu.

 

thank you.
