The first Oberon 2013 I put it to work was following your instructions, and
using instead of the SD adapter some scrapped SD socket from an old tablet.
But sadly a couple of years ago, Oberon did not start anymore, I don't know
why, because the FPGA and the rest of the board (the old Digilent
Spartan-3) seems to work with other projects. I rewriten many times the SD
card and try to see booting info leds following some description here on
the list to no avail. It seems Oberon is not booting at all.
That's one of the reasons for me to try new boards for reviving Oberon on
them, to showcase the system as we used to, to students of digital design
with FPGAs.

Best regards,
Prof Pablo Cayuela
