I came to the page in the rocket board, for the 15.1 cyclone GHRD, but the link procedure is for Linux. I'm planning to create my SD card via win7, how to I get the sd card image file?

hi, if you are referring this page http://rocketboards.org/foswiki/view/documentation/gsrd151bootlinuxsd

 

you can copy the url only from the page tab 2.http://releases.rocketboards.org/release/2015.10/gsrd/bin/  

 

and you can go to search the folder directly. and download the linux-socfpga-gsrd-15.1-cv-bin.tar.gz, 

 

you can get the sd card image file with the name called sdimage.img after you extract teh sdimage.tar (2gb), i am using winzip here.

Thanks for the guide, i got it already, i notice there is another version of ghrd in the installation folder. It is the same?

not really the same, as the cyclone and arria is sharing the same folder. that SD card image mainly is for the power up purpose only with out the FGPA rbf config file.

Note the the image file in the Altera folder, may not able to power up correctly the FGPA side , that is just for trying out sd card MMC power up.
