Help in BIN file!

I am treating R.P. as a FPGA board. I want to load the FPGA program on it and let it run my program. I don't want to consider the interface for now.

Here is my problem when I'm trying to load my bin generated through promgen -w [-b] -p bin -u 0 xxx.bit -o xxx.bin :
It seems the header information of the BIN file generated by the command in Prompt isn't correct, which makes it impossible to load into the fpga in R.P.
while the Boot.bin which is originally in the SD image has header information as follows (which can be load into the fpga in R.P. via cat command ).
I want to know how to generated such ther bin file?

Notice that boot.bin cannot be compared with red_pitaya_top.bin, since it also includes fsbl and u-boot image.
I would suggest that you first try to compile original FPGA code using make file and then try to convert it and load it in order to confirm the procedure.
