After installing the logiREF-ZGPU-ZED reference design for the ZedBoard from Avnet Electronics Marketing, please use the start.html file located in the installation root directory as a jump-start navigation page for exploring the reference design.

If you want to quickly run the precompiled graphics demo applications on your ZedBoard kit, please copy contents of the software/ready-for-download/linux_sd directory to the root directory on the FAT32 formatted SD card, plug the SD card, connect the PC monitor and power-on the setup board.

For the most comfortable work with the precompiled Linux demos, Xylon recommends use of a keyboard and a mouse connected through an USB hub (can be passive) to the ZedBoard USB OTG connector (J13). You can also use reference design with no keyboard and run the majority of the provided demos by using on-board push-buttons.
