hi. im using the MAXII with PFL ip to configure S4GX device. the flash device is numonyx 256M flash. 

i am able to program the flash & load a sof file using the JTAG if to the S4 but when i try usung configuration using the PFL - no success. 

im using the FPP scheme - burst mode. 

is there any importance to the option_BITS?? what is it? 

are there any known issues with the quartus 9.1? 

is there a ref design for the maxII using PFL? 

i really need ur help..

i also think there were some issues with sof2flash in 9.1, you'll want to use 9.1sp1 or 9.1sp2. you should be able to find a solution that has the details
