Boot Linux from SD Card


I’m trying to follow the instructions listed on this page On WIndows machine. The SD card is created without any error, though the Windows Explorer can only show the vfat partition.
After that the Arria 10 development board doesn’t boot with the following error:

Anyone seen this error before? What could be done to resolve it?
Thank you.

Hi ikatsnelson

I didn’t saw this message before. But a small hint:
When you try to start with a pre-builded SD card image it’s important to select the correct version for your development board…
On this page, you will find a list, which GSRD release number is supported by the Dev Kit Serial Number…

good luck!

Hi Schnudi:

Thanks so much for the link. The solution worked. I basically picked up a wrong image for my board.
