How to build BOOT.bin in Vitis?
« on: December 09, 2021, 06:07:34 PM »

I'm trying to build BOOT.bin manually for reference design (zynq) instead of using TE::sw_run_vitis -all :
After 'Build Platform Project' step, I have fsbl.elf and <project_name>.bif files. But I can't find information how to create BOOT.bin from these files? I read "Note: for Linux additional files must be add (BIF, boot files(u-boot.elf) and linux image (image.ub) from petalinux,)" I have u-boot.elf and image.ub from PetaLinux, but I can't understand how and where should I add these files to build BOOT.bin?

create a simple hello world project with vitits , compile and select create boot image.
instead of the given bif file, select the *.bif from our prebuilt folder. it it includes als need files.
If you want you can change file path to your own one or generate your own bif file but this must be like this one from the prebuilt folder.
