Target Computer Does Not Boot

Note

If you are using a Speedgoat target machine, contact Speedgoat technical support: www.speedgoat.com/support.

If you cannot start your target computer with the Simulink® Real-Time™ boot media or network boot image:

  1. Recreate the target boot kernel by using new media.

  2. Call SimulinkRealTime.getTargetSettings. Check that the Simulink Real-Time kernel properties correspond with the target settings displayed in the Simulink Real-Time Explorer.

    To display the current values of Simulink Real-Time target settings for the default target computer, type SimulinkRealTime.getTargetSettings without arguments. To display their allowed values, type:

    tgs = SimulinkRealTime.getTargetSettings;
    tgs.set
  3. If the target computer does not start and shows only a blank screen, to display messages that the kernel prints during startup, type:

    tgs = SimulinkRealTime.getTargetSettings;
    tgs.TargetScope = 'Disabled'

    Restart the target computer and check the console log for error messages. To read the target computer console log, type:

    console_log = SimulinkRealTime.utils.getConsoleLog;
    

    When you have corrected the errors, set tgs.TargetScope = 'Enabled', and then restart the target computer.

  4. By default, tgs.LegacyMultiCoreConfig = 'on'. If tgs.LegacyMultiCoreConfig is 'off', the Simulink Real-Time kernel cannot discover system resources that are not compliant with the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) standard. To allow the kernel to discover such devices by using the legacy MPFPS in the target computer BIOS, set tgs.LegacyMultiCoreConfig = 'on', and then restart the target computer.

  5. If you are doing a network boot and the procedure displays a message similar to TFTP Timeout:

    1. Check that the xpctftpserver program is running. If it is not, recreate the network boot image.

    2. Temporarily disable the internet security (firewall) software on the development computer. Test if you can start the target computer. If you can, ask your IT manager to configure the internet security software to allow the start procedure to work in its presence.

If this procedure does not solve your issue, see Target Medium Is Not Bootable. If you still cannot solve your issue, see Find Simulink Real-Time Support.
