Parsing board information failed.
  1. What are the possible causes of this problem?
  2. How to fix this problem?

It could be the eeprom content is being accidentally changed.

Is the board still able to boot up?

Hi, WanyneWWW
yes, the board can still boot up

Please check if this is similar to your case. Looks like you accidentally modified the eeprom too.

Hi, WayneWWW
as you said. the eeprom content is corrupted accidentally. After fixing the eeprom content, the issue is resolved
