Regarding your issue, it is strange that you are getting that message if you are selecting the correct serial port, I would like to know if you installed the driver inside the Galileo driver folder (linux-cdc-acm.inf), also, did you remove the microSD card from the Galileo? Are you following this guide: https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-drivers-and-updating-firmware-for-arduino-windows?
I’ll be waiting for your reply.
is there someone with a copy of the driver/firmware zip file for this. I can't find a way to download it. Every time I try I get the error that the service is unavailable...
You are right, the downloads page is not working.
Please send a PM so that I send the 10MB .zip (for windows) I downloaded some time ago from the downloads page.
Anyhow, I think the download page is expected to work again soon...
