ADRV9371-SDCARD: incomplete BOOT partition after download

We have an ADRV9371 with a ZC706. We managed to start the kit and do simple tests with the SDCARD included.


Now we want to use the Transceiver Evaluation Software from our PC.We could not connect to the kit with the error "Please update Zynq platform SD card". So we have followed successively:

AD9371 Transceiver Evaluation Software and Filter Wizard issues 

AD9371/AD9375 Evaluation Software | Design Center | Analog Devices 

downloaded from: 

followed instructions from

Windows Download and setting up the image [Analog Devices Wiki] 


Zynq & Altera SoC Quick Start Guide [Analog Devices Wiki] 

But the BOOT partition of the SD card contains only 6 files and no folder, so we could not find the right files for our board. We did not try the SD card right away, even if it contains the files: BOOT.bin, devicetree.dtb, uImage.

We have tried from two different Windows PC with an external SD reader/writer, but also from a Linux machine with an internal SD reader/writer (see end of Preparing the image at Zynq & Altera SoC Quick Start Guide [Analog Devices Wiki] ).


By the way, Linux Image build for AD9371 with Zc706 eval board  seems to contradict AD9371/AD9375 Evaluation Software | Design Center | Analog Devices . How are the different versions related: FPGA, Linux, softwares, ... ? On the original SD Card of the kit, I could use 2016_r2 with the related devicetree and uImage.


Thank you
