Hi, did you got your USB Blaster ? I don't thing something get wrong while youre flashing to gold2. I'm more thinking an a little difference between Gold2 and Gold1 in the power management. If your systeme was on the edge with a possibly power problem, it can be that it still work with gold1 and no more with gold2. I will advice the following : as soon you got your USB blaster, ask us here "http://www.apollo-accelerators.com
" a core in .jic format. You can flash it according the following instructions :"http://wiki.apollo-accelerators.com/dok ... re_quartus
". When it's done and your vampire is running, please try to update with the .exe to gold1, not gold2. So you can see that the flashing with the exe is working, even without a ROM installed. When all ok, then you can try one more time to flash Gold2 with the exe, but it will probally fail. Anyways, only this way we can find out what your issue is.
Tell me when you are ready !
