Don't worry, every question is important. According to the picture you attached your cable is not the correct for the Galileo but I don't know if your cable is the same that the picture shows.
The cable for the Galileo has to be serial and RS-232, I said that because there is another serial type: TTL. You can see what is the difference between each type of serial protocols in this link: RS-232 vs. TTL Serial Communication.
For the Galileo Serial Cable you have to use a 3 pin audio jack and a DB9 connector. In your picture the audio jack has 4 pins. If your PC has a serial port you don't need a USB converter but if not you have to use the RS232-USB converter.
So at this point you can buy the cable or make one by yourself. In this link there is a discussion about where to buy the cable: Serial cable for Galileo... and in these sites there are a guide to build your own serial cable: Building a Serial Cable , Intel Galileo - Introduction .
Let us know if this information was helpful. Have a nice day!
We are following up on your post Intel Gelelio Not Recognized When I use RS-232 and we would like to know if you still need help or if you already have an answer or solution to your question. Remember if someone replied to you with a helpful response you can mark it as correct or helpful answered. We will be waiting your response. Have a great day.
Oh, I am so sorry. I've completely forgotten this post as I cannot find it under my profile.
In reference to Diego's reply, I've managed to get the cable which was custom made. But it was not working, and of course I also tried the custom sketch method which I thought is should work.
I have since follow up with another post of mine here, Cannot Access Galileo LINUX OS.
I was hoping that someone could enlighten me on why using the custom sketch, I am still unable to access the LINUX OS using the normal USB connector (Actually I was able to access it, but it just hangs there.).
Have you tried using another different cable? In the other post, Cannot Acecss Galelio LINUX OS, I suggested you (and another user too) to try getting or building another cable since the problem seems to be the current cable you are using.
Have a nice day!
