PetaLinux - "ERROR: new format image overwritten - must RESET the board to recover" When Booting Image

Description

When I boot my Linux system, the UBOOT hand-off fails with the message below:

ERROR: new format image overwritten - must RESET the board to recover

Solution

This can occur if the system image (image.ub) is so large that it overlaps with the Linux kernels base address when extracted. 

This can be worked around by updating the "Netboot Offset" and Linux kernel base address in the PetaLinux system-level menuconfig. 

The specific location will vary from system to system and is dependent upon the size of the Linux kernel image.
