I am pretty novice when it comes to electronics, so I do not know a lot about this stuff. I know that for me, Arduino's gonna be the best, as it is the easiest to use for starters.
But the problem is, I simply cannot buy an Arduino board to burn the bootloader onto microcontrollers.
So I want to know of a way to do this with the equipment I already have.
I am including a few images below of the equipment I have already purchased.
Firstly, I do not know how to use the development board with my pc, which runs Windows 8 64 bit.
I also dont know what way to insert the microcontroller in the socket.
I want to turn the uC's into Arduinos.
What other equipment do I need?
I would not be able to buy an arduino board, anything else I'm fine. Just give me the generic names, like what you call those, not the specific brands.
Also, so I need to keep the uC plugged into the board at all times or is there something else I could do?
Sorry for the noob questions, and sorry if this isn't the right place to ask, thanks in advance.
