When compiling an Intel® Stratix® 10 project with a Hard Processor System component and the configuration method set to AVSTx<n> the following error may appear during the Assembly stage of compilation:
"Error(19192): File C:\..\...\...\project_name.sof is incomplete - HPS is present but bootloader information is missing"
This occurs during generation of a raw binary file, which requires the HPS first stage bootloader to be present in the .sof file. However, during initial compilation of the project, the HPS first stage bootloader is not inserted into the .sof file. Note that a .sof file is still generated by the assembler, and the HPS first stage bootloader can be inserted via command line before using the .sof file to program a Stratix 10 device.
