Intel Edison shows up as Merrifield

Jump to solution

Hi,

My intel edison used to work and then I didn't use it for quite a while. I'm trying to start using it again but i run into the problem of not being able to flash the firmware. I've tried using the setup tool, and manually flashing the edison, which prompted me to install xfstk tools, which I believe can only be done on a linux system(I'm running windows 10). When I look in Devices & Printers, the Intel Edison appears as an unknown device called Merrifield. Moreover, I don't believe my computer recognizes the Intel Edison since, upon inspection in the device manager, the only semblance of the Intel Edison is the "USB Serial Port: COM5", rather than the three ports that should be there.

Has anyone else faced this problem and solved it? Or does anyone know how to install xfstk tools on windows?

I thought on Windows you need to install FlashToolLite https://01.org/android-ia/downloads/intel-platform-flash-tool-lite https://01.org/android-ia/downloads/intel-platform-flash-tool-lite . If I understood correctly xfstk is built-in (I saw on Linux, and IRC it reported a newer xfstk than I have installed)

Hey,

I tried using the program you linked to and it worked!! My questions now are can i run the setup tool and at the end of the flashing process, the Intel Edison is shown as "Disconnected" in yellow text but my board is still plugged in. Is that an issue?

Thanks

Make sure you have sufficient DC power on it - use the DC input jack not just USB power.
