Bug ID: 1507917938

Why does FPGA configuration fail from HPS on Intel® Stratix® 10 SX devices when I configure phase 2 bitstreams in HPS boot first mode?


Due to a problem in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 19.3, phase 2 bitstream core.rbf configuration from HPS as part of an HPS boot first mode may fail for designs targeting Intel Stratix® 10 SX devices.

The following errors may be seen:

 fpga_manager fpga0: Error while writing image data to FPGA
 failed to load fpga image
OF: overlay: of_overlay_create: Pre-apply notifier failed (err=-110)
create_overlay: Failed to create overlay (err=-110)
