Unable to boot petalinux image on zybo z7010



I tried to boot prebuilt linux images on zybo z7010 board, here are the steps i followed, still i'm unable to boot the board via SD card.


1. Installed petalinux from AMD wesite given in petalinux tools documentation(UG114).

2. Downloaded BSP from digilent website for zybo z7010(https://digilent.com/reference/lib/exe/fetch.php?tok=bb63b7&media=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2FDigilent%2FZybo-Z7%2Freleases%2Ftag%2F10%2FPetalinux%2F2020.1-1%2FZybo-Z7-10-Petalinux-2020-1.bsp)

3. Installed BSP using command(petalinux-create -t project -s <path-to-bsp>) and project built successfully.

4. Partitioned SD card into two parts(FAT32 and ext4)

5. Copied BOOT.BIN,image.ub and boot.scr files into partition 1.

6. Ejected SD card and inserted into board(jumper set to SD mode)

7. Connected serial port(minicom) and set baud rate to 115200.

these are the versions of of OS and petalinux i used (OS version: Linux ubuntu 22.02.2 LTS and petalinux: 2023.2)


There is nothing coming up in the console i.e the board is not booting.

1.  check if BOOT.BIN contains al needed binaries: petalinux-package --boot --fpga --fsbl --u-boot --force
2. Try connect early to console to view fsbl messages if any.
3. make sure you umount partitions before you unplug the sdcard (everything was written to the boot partition)

I followed the above 3 steps  with pre-built images but when i flashed the images and insert SD card into the board, the board is not booting up.

there is nothing coming in serial console.

the red colored LED is coming up but the green one does not, i also checked the jumper(JP5) which is in SD mode.
