Cannot get the Firmware to Upload to the M2 board

First, thanks for any and all help. Greatly appreciated.

Just received the M2 and I’m trying to upload the Firmware. I have several Raspberry Pi’s and the instructions were pretty straight forth in this process.

When I selected the options in the guide and proceed, this is what I get. I tried several times to load this and I used two different computers. Both computers are Windows, one is ver10 and the other is ver7. Com3 was my port also. The software appeared to compile correctly also. Here is the message below.

Sketch uses 57294 bytes (22%) of program storage space. Maximum is 253952 bytes.
Global variables use 2009 bytes (24%) of dynamic memory, leaving 6183 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 8192 bytes.

This report would have more information with

“Show verbose output during compilation”
option enabled in File → Preferences.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

This can be closed. I discovered the correct information for the M2 located here: M2 Resources — MakerMade

Thanks.
