13.2 EDK - ELF Check Failed when running "Program FPGA" in SDK


Program FPGA failed with an ELFcheck error, but the Elf Check passed when it was generated by SDK.

Error message:

"FPGA configuration encountered errors.
Program FPGA failed
ELF Check failed for ELF file on processor microblaze_0"


When the ELFfile assigned to initialize the BRAM includes sections located in external BRAM, this error occurs.

The solution is either to assign all the sections in the local BRAM or to store programs in Flash and initialize the BRAM with a bootloader.
