    How to verify whether right image is loaded on the Intel Edison mini break out board

    HC

      Hello,

       

      I am new to Edison and working on edison mini break out board for a project on BLE . Initially assembled the board and choose the operating system as OS X and installed Mac OS X Integrated Installer https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads

      1. My question is, does installing the Mac OS X Integrated Installer https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/m_iot_dev_kit_2015.0.026.tar.gz  will take care of loading firmware/image on the intel edison board? or
      2. Do I need install the image/firmware separately? If yes, Please provide the guidelines/link to follow.
      3. By installing Mac OS X Integrated Installer [ https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/m_iot_dev_kit_2015.0.026.tar.gz ], I am able to scan and connect bluetooth devices using bluetoothctl. Does that mean I have loaded the image on Edison board?
      4. What is exact difference between flashing the board and loading the image on board? and how is it different from installing Mac OS X Integrated Installer?


      Following  were the steps that I performed for setting up mini break out board : https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-edison-osx-step2

      1. Assemble your board

      2. Run integrated installer

      3. set up serial terminal

      4. connect over wifi

      5. set up your IDE(Eclipse)

      After  performing above steps, the EDISON  would show up in devices list but does not contain any files loaded, it is empty.
