I am not able to boot Sabre Lite iMX6 board with WINCE 2013 binary downloaded from Adeneo Embedded.


What steps I followed?

1. I have downloaded Windows Compact Embedded 2013 binary image for Boundary device Sabre Lite iMX6 Quad core from Adeneo Embedded website.

2. I have prepared sd card using cfImager.exe tool. Here is the command which i used with cfimager.exe as per document. (J is my sd card drive letter)


cfimager –f nk.nb0 –d J -imx53 –a


cfimager –f eboot.nb0 –d J -imx53


3. Also I have copied iMX6DQ_SPI_to_uSDHC4.bin from iMX6DQ_SPI_to_SD_loader_rev1.0 workaround folder which was provided as part of binary image.

4. SD preparation was successful. When I boot the board I received u-boot prompt (Boot Switch SW1: 00 - Use Fuse settings). I followed the commands specified in the document for erasing SPI EEPROM and loading it with iMX6DQ_SPI_to_uSDHC4.bin from SD card. I have connected my Micro SD card in SD4 slot and copied iMX6DQ_SPI_to_uSDHC4.bin to EEPROM.


What issue I am facing?

Erasing EEPROM went successful. After that when I reset the board, the board does not boots. I neither receive any debug message on Tera Term nor any display on HDMI monitor. I have selected my COM port correctly. I have used Windows 7 32 bit PC for preparing my SD card.


Do I miss any steps in this or is there any special sequence or steps to be followed to make the board boot with WINCE 2013 binary? With the same procedure I was able to boot Sabre Lite iMX6 Quad board with Windows CE 7 binary downloaded from same website successfully without any issue.


I'm so eager to see Windows CE 2013 running on iMX6. Let me know where I go wrong.


Thank You
