Getting started with driver problems can be annoying. Therefore, I have written a small step-by-step article to help you solve these finicky problems. Good luck! 🙂
- Install Arduino IDE 1.6.5+
- Install the Latest Java development kit 32-bit
- Connect the Galileo Gen 2 board to your computer and head to Device Manager.
4. Fix the driver issues by installing the latest USB drivers:
If link does not work, navigate from https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/library/galileo-getting-started
Choose OS and Arduino as IDE and then proceed with downloading the drivers.
Once the zip file is downloaded, extract it. In Device Manager, right-click on CDC Serial and click ‘Update Driver Software…’. Then ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and navigate to the folder you extracted earlier. Make sure you check ‘Include subfolders.’
After that, the driver should be installed successfully;
Note the COM port of the Intel IoT Dev Kit Serial device -> mine is COM4
Gadget serial 2.4
For some reason, after having installed the CDC Serial drivers, I saw the Gadget Serial v2.4 device in Device Manager. I expected the previous drivers to install everything. But anyway, I had to find other drivers in a different place, but still on the Intel website.

Download and install the latest drivers.
In my case currently, the latest version is 1.0.4
Perform the same driver installation procedure as explained earlier.
