I'm assuming you are following this guide: Getting Started with the Intel® Galileo Board on Windows* | Intel® Developer Zone
Are you using an SD-image on your board or not?
What is the outcome of right click on CDC Serial > Update Driver Software > Browse my computer for driver software > Browse > "Select your /arduino-1.5.3.-Intel.1.0.4/" > Next.
Also, I found this about Code 10 Error = Fix: "This device cannot start" Code 10 error in Device Manager in Windows
Yes the procedure I am following is Getting Started with the Intel® Galileo Board on Windows* | Intel® Developer Zone.
I am using a micro SD card with the Yocto image version
which I made byfollowing the procedure at IoT - Making a bootable micro SD Card with Windows* | Intel® Developer Zone.
The outcome of right click on CDC Serial > Update Driver Software > Browse my computer for driver software > Browse > "Select your /arduino-1.5.3.-Intel.1.0.4/" > Next is shown in my original post. Windows does not find a driver for CDC Serial in arduino-1.5.3.-Intel.1.0.4. Do you have any idea why my PC Device Manager Other Devices shows CDC Serial instead of Gadget Serial v2.4?
Update. If I don't have the micro SD installed then the Galileo driver seems to be now installing correctly and Galileo (COM4) appears in Device Manager. CDC Serial appears and Galileo (COM4) disappears when the SD is installed. Also with the SD installed a new Linux Disk Drive appears in Device Manager.
When you use the SDcard you need to install a different driver. Let's try this:
Go to Windows Explorer and select the Removable disk, go to the win-driver folder and unzip iotdk-serial-external.zip
Now, power the board with the SD card inside, then right click on CDC Serial > Update Driver Software > Browse my computer for driver software > Browse > "Removable Disk" > win-driver
This is because the IoT image use diferent drivers.
Before I got your last reply, I was exploring the files on the SD card and stumbled onto the iotdk serial driver and used it for CDC serial in Device Manager. Now I am trying out Arduino and I think the problem in my original post is fixed. You had the right answer in your last post.
I have another problem maybe you can help me with. I am using AnalogWrite in Arduino to create PWM signals at pins IO6 and IO9. How can I set the frequency of a PWM signals? I would like frequencies in the 10KHz to 50Khz ballpark and I have a gen 2 Galileo.
