When you run petalinux-build, it generates FIT images for Versal® ACAP, Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC, Zynq-7000 devices, and MicroBlaze™ platforms. The RAM disk image rootfs.cpio.gz.u-boot is also generated.

The full compilation log build.log is stored in the build sub-directory of your PetaLinux project. The final image, <plnx-proj-root>/images/linux/image.ub, is a FIT image. The kernel image (including RootFS) is Image for Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC and Versal® platform, zImage for Zynq-7000 devices, and image.elf for MicroBlaze processors. The build images are located in the <plnx-proj-root>/images/linux directory. A copy is also placed in the /tftpboot directory if the option is enabled in the system-level configuration for the PetaLinux project.

Important: By default, besides the kernel, RootFS, and U-Boot, the PetaLinux project is configured to generate and build the first stage boot loader. For more details on the auto generated first stage boot loader, see Generating Boot Components.
