Virtex-4 Video Starter Kit (VSK) - Why is my ML402-based Video Starter Kit failing to boot from the Rev 1 or Rev 2 Compact Flash (CF) Card?

Description

Why is my ML402-based Video Starter Kit failing to boot from the Rev 1 or Rev 2 Compact Flash (CF) Card?

Solution

You must make sure that you have the JTAG jumper on the bottom of the ML402 board set to the correct location. The TDO EXP jumper is located next to the System ACE Compact Flash slot, in the upper left corner when the board is upside down.

When the Video Starter Kit is attached, the TDO EXP jumper should be across pins 2 and 3. For example:

-- 1 - o

-- 2 - x

-- 3 - x

When the Video Start kit is removed, the TDO EXP jumper should be across pins 1 and 2. For example:

-- 1 - x

-- 2 - x

-- 3 - o
