Generate new boot.bin

Hi,
I have a picozed board that I am working with, and I have gone through the tutorials with the microzed IIoT kit to see how to interface Wind River Pulsar with my designed PL. When going through the tutorial for the IIoT kit, it gives good instructions and examples, but when it comes down to the boot.bin, it asks us to copy a pre-built boot.bin that has the correct .bit file for the PL side. I'd like to know how to recreate that boot.bin that is used for loading Pulsar, but have my own .bit file as part of the boot.bin. Do you have any tools/instructions/examples for how to make a new boot.bin that will load a user created PL and then boot the Pulsar uImage?
 
Thanks,
Rob

Hi Rob,

Wind River provides a set of certified images used to boot Pulsar Linux on MicroZed.

Wind River provides an SDK which can be used for developing applications:

Keep in mind that once you modify your hardware platform, it will no longer be Wind River certified.

Hi Kevin,

Hi Kevin,
Thanks for the reply. So, what you are saying is that there isn't an official way to generate a new bootloader that contains a different/custom bitstream for the PL side of the Zynq?
 
Thanks,

Hi Rob,

Of course it is possible do this and we have an example of how on this page called "Build the MicroZed IIoT Starter Kit Zynq Hardware Platform":

http://microzed.org/support/design/13591/116

Check out that design and see if it is what you are looking for.

Best Regards,
