Hi, May I know which Quartus version and EPCS device are you using? Are you using DE1-SOC (https://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&CategoryNo=205&No=836&PartNo=1) board?

Hi, Could you confirm which board version are you using as I suspect that you are using Rev A or B which is utilizing EPCS128 flash device? Please refer to https://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&CategoryNo=165&No=1046&PartNo=4 on how to check the board version

Hi, That is what you set but I don't think EPCS64 is used on the board. Please confirm your board version.

May I know if you are able to use older version of Quartus which is 14.1? I would like to confirm if this is happening only in latest Quartus version only.

Hi, Could you try the method mention in https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/documentation/iga1446487888057.html#jrn14812299... (Chapter Nios II Processor Booting from EPCQ Flash)? You will need to change the device to EPCS and Configuration mode to Active Serial Mode.
