I am desperately trying to load a design via System ACE onto a ML403 board.
What I use:
ISE 8.2i ML403 Linux
What I did:
Synthesized a very small design (some led blinking).
Then generated System ACE with my .bit file. Added my bitstream to all config addresses.
I formatted the CF dos partition with: mkdosfs -s 64 -F 16 -R /dev/sda1
- using the original partition table that came on the card.
Mounted with -ofat=16 - also tried without
Now I tried to move all generated files to the CF -> Red light
Picked .ace file and used as standalone system.ace -> Red light
Copied the original contents of the DOS partition into the CF (by copy, not the image!!) -> Green light
Copied my .ace file into the designated position for an own ace -> Green light, after selection from the menu -> Red light
Copied bootloader .ace file from the original image as system.ace into my CF -> Green light
So I think that my DOS FS generation is ok as I can make a working CF.
But my .ace file doesn't seem to work.
I have tried all that several times, thinking over and over and over again. My bitfile works when I upload it directly via JTAG.
Has anyone an idea what I have done wrong? I don't have any further ideas.
Thank you all very much!!!
