The AMD Versal™ adaptive SoC platform has various boot stages. You need to isolate the failing stage to find more details of trouble shooting.

  • For Xilinx Versal Platform Loader and Manager stage issues, it loads PDI file and initialize each components. Check the the AMD Vivado™ Design Sutie settings if this step halts or report errors.

  • If the boot hangs at the U-boot stage, check the device tree configuration. If SD card circuit does not support high-speed, add no-1-8-v for the SD controller node. U-boot will look for boot.scr and system.dtb on the fat32 partition of SD card if it is in the SD boot mode. Make sure these two files are available.
