Hello world hang at launching kernel :(

I used aocl to install the bsp of a10_ref to the host used by pac_a10 by mistake, and it was not uninstalled correctly, and then the kernel could not be started error.

I tried to reinstall the stack and OPAE, but nothing changed. At the beginning, the BMC was unrecognizable, and it was recognized after rewriting. I don't know where the problem occurred. Currently hello world is stuck in this step.

Below are some instructions  in the command line
