      If the build completes successfully, all the necessary files are generated in a following directory:
      ./<target_board_name>_m86/build/tmp/deploy/images/<target_board_name>
      
      Image is a Kernel image, *.dtb is a blob file, core-image-<image_type>-<board_name>.tar.bz2 is the rootfs, modules-<board_name>.tgz are kernel modules.
    3. You can now proceed with running Yocto images

    Running Yocto images

    Linux kernel can be booted from microSD/USB memory/eMMC/TFTP.
    Root FS can be mounted from microSD/USB memory/eMMC/NFS.
