Why does reconfiguration with a bitstream which is generated with different versions of Quartus Prime Pro fail without a power cycle for Stratix 10 devices in AVST(x8/x16/x32) mode?

Description

When using AVST (x8/x16/x32) configuration mode in Intel Stratix® 10 devices, you may find that, after configuring the Stratix 10 with one version of bitstream successfully, reconfiguring with a bitstream generated by a different version of the Intel Quartus® Prime Pro software may fail, unless you power cycle the board.

Workaround/Fix

For successful reconfiguration without a power cycle, the initial boot bitstream needs to match the updated bitstream.

This issue will be resolved in a future release of the Quartus Prime Pro software.
