Booting the ZCU102 FSBL initial boot using JTAG inside VMware with a Windows 10 Host

Updated: Jun 8, 2022

In this video I demonstrate booting the ZCU102 using JTAG inside a VMware session. Once booted we will be presented with a login prompt. In the next video in this series we will attempt a hello world project.

#1 Setup the board pins

#2 Connect the two USB cables to the USB ports and plug them into your USB hub which is connected to your host machine.

#3 Make sure your VMware session removeable devices connects properly using USB 3.0 as shown in the video

#4 Power on the board and verify connections

#5 Run Vivado's hardware manager to make the connections

#6 Setup minicom with the proper serial port by first verifying the proper port ls -l /dev/ttyUSB* and then making changes if needed with sudo minicom -s

#7 Open a new terminal once minicom is running and run the petalinux boot command to launch via JTAG petalinux-boot --jtag --fpga --kernel --hw_server-url TCP:localhost:3121

After this runs you should be presented with a login prompt and successful jtag boot
