In some parts of my project I need to simulate NIOS II with Modelsim. I follow the documets from ALtera and I am able to run simulation. THE version of Quqrtus is 13.1 SP1 and I am using NIOS II SBT GUI for compiling C codes on NIOS and run Modlesim from the GUI.My reset vector and exception vector of CPU are pointing to on chip ram. I can see objdump and hex files are generated and hex file is addressed properly in the RTL. in the begining i see cpu is trying to access on chip ram, until it reaches to a function called alt_load and under this function there is alt_load_section subroutine that is used for copying the content of flash to on chip ram! cpu stucks here forever! I don't want this and I don't need any other boot loader. Can you please advise me how to get rid of this function?
