I am designing a PCIe Card with Arria 10 FPGA. I also have an external 16-bit parallel NOR FLASH to hold the configuration image. During system power-up, I am unable to get the FPGA completes its configuration via FLASH before the Root-Complex de-assert the PCIe RESET. Any solution?

yes , it is possible via CvP (Configuration via protocol IP )

Here is the link for your reference

Thanks.

 

Do you know how to place the FPGA image into the serial FLASH (SPI FLASH)?

yes....In the design you have to add the "Intel FPGA serial Flash loader IP core and ASMII ip core " Then using JTAG (USB blaster) you can directly load the FPGA image into the flash .

Here is the link from intel application notes

Also make sure you select the right serial flash device which is recommended by the Intel . List of supported device given below
