I have set up the board by the windows 64 bit installer. When I am trying to establish a serial communication with the Intel Edison arduino breakout board, the putty is not responding. I hit the enter button a few times but still no response. I have selected the COM port by looking at the device manager and bit rate to115200. Any help would be appreciable
Make sure you're powering your board correctly and that the switch SW1 is towards the micro USB port, not the USB port. When you are going to connect to Putty you should select the port labeled as "USB Serial Port (COM X)"in the Device manager. Do you see this port in the Device Manager?
I'd suggest you to look at this guide https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-edison-windows-32-step2 https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-edison-windows-32-step2 and follow the steps required to install the drivers needed.
Let me know your results.
Thanks for the response. I have powered the board by USB port of my laptop and switch is placed towards the micro-USB port. I have checked the device manager and it is showing the USB serial port. I am attaching the screenshot and the picture of my board connected.
Have you tried to reflash your board?

I would like to know if you have updates on this? Have you been able to use Putty with your board? Have you tried with different USB ports and cables?
You can also try by flashing the board with the flashall script instead of the Phone Flash Tool Lite: https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-25154 https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-25154
Could you attach a screenshot of what you have on your Serial Settings on Putty? Are you using 115200 as speed?
