    Board does not appear as drive and it does not flash




      We bought the Intel Edison Arduino breakout board. First, we flashed the Yocto image on the board and everything seemed to work fine, until we tried to use opencv. we realized that some of the kernel modules fail to install even when we try to reboot the board. in addition, we noticed that the board does not appear as a drive anymore. we were trying to re-flash the image on the board but we couldn't as the drive does not show up (we are using a Mac). 


      when we tried to install modules needed for opencv, this is what we got:

      .amazonaws.com/opencv/v3.0.0/Release/node-v14-linux-ia32.tar.gz' (1)

      npm ERR! Linux 3.10.17-poky-edison+

      npm ERR! This is most likely a problem with the opencv package,

      we tried to reboot the board the error we got was:

      Failed to start Load Kernel Modules. (during rebooting process)

      We found this solution on the internet and we tried to follow it but the end result we the following:

      here's the link for the solution we found -> No Edison Drive After Failed Flash

      the result we got -->

      Any Help is very much appreciated.
