Hey Community :-)
i was on the search of how to burn bootloaders to fresh microcontrollers.
on the side of the boards it is always linked to http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Bootloader
but this side redirects to http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Environment?from=Tutorial.Bootloader
i think it should link to the Uploading part in the document:http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Environment?from=Tutorial.Bootloader#uploading
In the Tools Section are also two link pointing to the Tutorial/Bootloader page - that means they pointing to the same document you reading in
For selecting a harware programmer when programming a board or chip and not using the onboard USB-serial connection. Normally you won't need this, but if you're burning a bootloader to a new microcontroller, you will use this.
The items in this menu allow you to burn a bootloader onto the microcontroller on an Arduino board....
is there some where some more information on the concept of the bootloaders for the different boards?
