No, we don't know what your telescope expects.

You typically download an image, than you use a SD card image burning tool to copy the files, and the file system. Simply copying the files won't work.
Stuff like this:

Hello,

it depends of used bootloader. Mostly it involves editing "boot.ini" file and place Linux kernel image, "Device Tree" file and Linux filesystem image (ziped) on SD card. All process is quite complex, for claryfing i propose to watch this tutorial:



Best regards

What will you be using it in, e.g. a SBC like a raspberry?

This is probably the 10th thread around some proprietary telescope that isn’t working. See his other threads for random bits of information about the system.

newit, your problem has nothing neither with Linux (your scope doesn't run Linux) nor with FPGA. The solution is described in this message: https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/792080-meade-etx-ls-hbx-freeze-while-updating/#entry11408348 (follow the less error prone "Win7 or Win10" path). If it doesn't work for you - open a topic in the Repair section https://www.eevblog.com/forum/repair/ instead of spamming random sections.

No, my scope motor control system do not boot up, if i can boot up the scope I will then be able to communicate with scope via USB.
