I’m trying to build an image for a Colibri iMX7D 1GB following this guide.
I’m working from Windows10 on a virtual machine running Ubuntu 18.04 (Virtualbox).
I then transfer the oe-core/build/deploy/images/colibri-imx7-emmc folder on an USB drive and use it to flash the image on the board via Toradex Easy Installer (v 2.0b7).
I’m experiencing 3 issues:
- sometimes the image on the drive is not listed at all in the available images in Toradex Easy Installer
- sometimes an image is found but is listed as not compatible with the module
- even when the image is listed and compatible, I try to install it but the following error message is shown:
Error downloading or writing image
xz: (stdin): File format not recognized
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
Can you please tell me what I’m doing wrong?
