Boards - Directory structure of CF card changed

Description

I have problems running the reference designs provided on the Compact Flash card shipped with my kit, and the design does not run as expected. What could be the issue here?

Solution

If you encounter problems running the reference designsincluded on the Compact Flash card shipped with your 6 Series kit, this might be due to an incorrect directory structure on the Compact Flash card.To resolve this problem, reload the flash images included on the Kit-specific Reference Design page into the flash and re-try the designs.

The Kit-specific flash files can be found on the Kit Reference Design pages:
