No CFI table found at address on Stratix IV GX development kit

Honored Contributor II

Development kit: Stratix IV GX FPGA Development Kit (RoHS), 530 Edition f 


Quartus version: 11.1 SP2 

OS: Debian 


I accidentally rewrote flash memory of Stratix 4 GX development kit and trying to restore it to default board update portal, according to User Guide. 


I changed all dip switches to factory one. 

I uploaded SOF image s4gx530_fpga_bup.sof, using both programmer GUI from quartus and programmer CLI (using command nios2-configure-sof). 

When I'm trying to reprogram flash memory with command (bash ./restore.sh) and writing "r", I'm receiving following error: 


nios2-flash-programmer -b 0x08000000 restore_s4gx530_fpga_bup.flash 


Using cable "USB-Blaster [1-2]", device 1, instance 0x00 

Resetting and pausing target processor: OK 

No CFI table found at address 0x08000000 

Leaving target processor paused 


Note: the board FPGA should be configured as described  

in the User's Guide, chapter entitled:  

"Restoring the Flash Device with the Factory Settings" 




I tried using different version of quartus 2 (11.1 sp2, 11.1), quartus prime (15.1, 16.1) and programmer, but nothing really changes this error. 


Can you help me out with pointing what should I be looking for?
