Unable to Load Symbols Using "Load available debug symbols"

Pressing the
load this
Load Available Debug Symbols (formerly named Load This) button does not result in locating proper symbols: the debugger cannot find the file to load.
Cause
Solution
BIOS was built without debug symbols.
Ensure you have debug information available.
Your local file system paths do not match the paths included in the debug information. This might happen if you are building and debugging on different systems.
To provide proper path mapping information:
1. In the main Eclipse* toolbar, expand the drop-down menu next to the
debug config
Debug
button and click
Debug Configurations
. The new dialog box opens.
2. Open your connection configuration, navigate to the
Source
tab, and click
Add
.
3. In the opened
Add Source
dialog box, select
Path mapping
and click
OK
.
4. Specify the proper source lookup path and click
OK
.
The module to be loaded misses the proper page alignment. This is common for early UEFI stages.
Load symbols via CLI: replace the default stride size with the custom one. See instructions at Configuring the Scan for Debug Information.
The module size is bigger than 4KB.
