Hello all, I am working in an undergraduate research lab and have been tasked with setting up an intel edison board. I am going through the intel getting started guide for window 64 bit and I hit a snag. The guide tells me to install the setup tool from the following link and says it is listed under the installers heading. There is no installers heading and definitely no setup tool to download. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for reaching out.
The Setup Tool can be found here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26993/Intel-Edison-Configuration-Tool https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26993/Intel-Edison-Configuration-Tool. Download the intel_edison_setup_win_v2016.2.007.zip file.
Hope this information helps.
In that case I'd recommend you to flash your Edison manually. Take a look at these instructions to install the Edison's Drivers: https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-drivers-for-intel-edison-board-with-windows Installing Drivers for your Board and in order to flash the Edison manually, you can look at these instructions: https://software.intel.com/en-us/flashing-firmware-on-your-intel-edison-board-windows Flashing the OS Image on your Board with Windows*. If you have any issue during the process, don't hesitate to ask for assistance.
I have downloaded and installed the drivers on my computer and flashed the board through the command prompt using the flashall.bat command. When I open Putty and try to establish a serial connection it won't work. I click open and my computer dings and nothing happens. I have the right COM port and the baud rate is set to 115200. Any help from here would be appreciated.
I understand you are experiencing issues establishing a serial communication.
There are some things that we can try to see if we can establish the corresponding communication:
- Try using a wall adapter power supply, sometimes the board doesn't receive the adequate amount of power from the USB ports (in case you are using the Arduino Expansion Board).
- Try several USB ports, PCs and laptops tend to have different types of USB ports, and some are more suitable than others when connecting the board.
- Try connecting to another PC or laptop, this may help us discard the possibility of a defective unit.
- Make sure that the SW1 switch is toward the micro USB port and not the USB port (in case you are using the Arduino Expansion Board).
- Keep in mind that the putty.exe file must be ran as administrator.
Could you provide a picture of your setup? Also a couple of screenshots, one of the Device Manager displaying Ports (COM & LPT), and another one of the PuTTY Configuration window with the corresponding information.
I'll be waiting for your response.
Have a nice day.
Looking at the screenshots you provided, I cannot see any issues with your setup. What I can suggest is to re-flash the board with the latest image once again, as an error could have occurred during the flashing process. The latest image can be found here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27074/Intel-Edison-Yocto-Poky-image
Also, are you using the Mini-Breakout Board or the Arduino Expansion Board?
After going through the troubleshooting steps, the next option is to submit a ticket for replacement of the board. To start a RMA for your board, follow the instructions and fill out all
