Just in case, these are the cables mhahn mentioned https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-23043. With this cables you should be able to see the booting process when you power up your board. Let us know if it works. Also could you attach the log of the IDE when you are trying to upload the Blink sketch?
Sorry for the delayed response and thanks for your time. The Galileo is a my friends house. We are working on a project together. JPMontero, here is the log when uploading a sketch. Hopefully this will provide you with some information.
Binary sketch size: 50,642 bytes (of a 262,144 byte maximum) - 19% used
MS-DOS style path detected: C:\Users\Peter\Desktop\arduino-1.5.3/hardware/arduino/x86/tools/izmir/clupload_win.sh
Preferred POSIX equivalent is: /cygdrive/c/Users/Peter/Desktop/arduino-1.5.3/hardware/arduino/x86/tools/izmir/clupload_win.sh
CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this warning.

Thanks for the log. On the last line of the log you can see “/dev/ttyS3: No such device or address” so the IDE is not recognizing your board. Is your Galileo being recognized by the computer? I’d suggest you to get a serial console cable to see if you are able to see the booting process, to know if the board is booting up properly. In case you are using a Galileo Gen 1, you can make your own by following this guide http://www.malinov.com/Home/sergey-s-blog/intelgalileo-introduction.
