If possible, ensure that the installation on the host machine works on another controller of the same model. If it does install correctly on another CompactRIO controller, then your controller may have a rare condition where the bootline is corrupted from manufacturing. The bootline contains all the information that the VxWorks bootrom needs to load a VxWorks kernel image into the target's memory. To repair this do the following steps:
- Set the SafeMode switch to on and reboot your controller (this step is necessary to write to the bootline located on the flash of the CompactRIO controller).
- Locate the controller from MAX and reformat the controller (this will reformat the controller as well as repair the bootline). The controller will reboot.
- Set the SafeMode switch back to off position.
- Install desired software.
