When you specify Bootgen options on the command line you have many more options than those provided in the Vitis IDE. In the standard install of the Vitis software platform, the XSCT is available for use as an interactive command line environment, or to use for creating scripting. In the XSCT, you can run Bootgen commands. XSCT accesses the Bootgen executable, which is a separate tool. This Bootgen executable can be installed standalone as described in Installing Bootgen. This is the same tool as is called from the XSCT, so any scripts developed here or in the XSCT will work in the other tool.
