ZC706 PCIe TRD Linux not booting from SPI flash

Hi,

   I have a ZC706 and am trying to run the PCIe TRD (2015.4). I've successfully booted linux from the SD card which then copies the boot files to SPI Flash. After updating the SD card with the TRD application (contents of ready_to_test/sd_image folder), changing the SW11 to boot from SPI flash, and power cycling, I get stuck in u-boot with the printout below. I'm not sure what else to try here, and apparently am not important enough to be able to open a service request for this technical issue. Can someone help?

P.S. I've seen the post at post 683732 and there was no resolution or even comment by a moderator / Xilinx employee.

Hi kduong@tessera.com,

Did you get resolution on this?  I am having the same issue.

 

Thanks,

Never got a response @michellelloyd . Please let me know if you do, my Zynq board has just been sitting there collecting dust. Embarrassing customer support by Xilinx.

Re: ZC706 PCIe TRD Linux not booting from SPI flash

Hello kduong@tessera.com,

 

If you haven't got an answer to your question yet, my suggestion to you would be for you to contact your local authorized Distributor with any technical questions you may have (such as this particular issue), as they are your first point of contact. Even if you bought the board from the Xilinx e-shop and not directly from them, you'd still need to contact your local Authorized Distributor to assist you with your issue described in this forum topic. If they can’t resolve your problem, they’ll be able to open a new Service Request (SR) on your behalf. And once the SR is created by them, a Xilinx Application Engineer will then be able to provide you with the solution to this issue. 

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best Regards,

Anatoli Curran

Hi kduong@tessera.com

Which revision of the board you have?

 

Can you please select the appropriate version of TRD based on your board revision?

Re: ZC706 PCIe TRD Linux not booting from SPI flash

HI Vijaya,

 

We are also facing the same problem as we are working with San Jose State University.

We have double checked the revision and seems to be right.

here is the reply from them.

 

"Thank you!

I just double checked the revision version and the associated file but it seems that I used the correct one.

My board is rev 2.0 and the file that I downloaded was rdf0287-zc706-pcie-trd-2015-4 which is associated to this version..."

 

Could you please look further into this issue. It seems to be a very prevalent issue.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Naveen Purushotham

Hi @vijayak 

     Thanks for the reply. My board is rev 2.0 and just like @npurusho I downloaded rdf0287-zc706-pcie-trd-2015-4.zip
