Created bootloader for CycloneV SOC doesn't work

Hi,

 

I'm currently trying to follow up several tutorials on creating a preloader and bootloader for an Intel Cyclone V Soc. For example I did all steps from this tutorial:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS7pvefsbRM

After creating the preloader and bootloader in EDS Command Shell ("make" and "make uboot")

I transfer it to the FAT partition on my SD card drive G:

( "alt-boot-disk-util.exe -p preloader-mkpimage.bin -a write -d g"   and "cp uboot-socfpga/u-boot.img /cygdrive/g")

 

But when I put the card into the Terassic DE 10 Nano Board it will not boot. 

I see the following output in Putty:

I checked all steps but I didn't find the issue.

 

Can someone help me?

 

Thank you very much.

I now tried to do the steps in Ubuntu 18.04 instead of Win 10  but I still got the same issue.

 

Does anybody have this kind of problems also?

 

 

Thank you
