I am trying to take the ATMega and build it into a custom circuit. I have used a protoboard and everything works fine, now I want to take the Micro Controller off the Arduino and install it directly onto the Breadboard. I am following this tutorial, http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard (http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard) with the Minimal Circuit method. I can not get the bootloader to load. I have the right hardware selected, I have checked my wiring. I have been searching the forums but can not find and good answers. Has anyone been able to solve this problem?
Error While Burning Bootloader
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
One thing that I am questioning is does a Microcontroller need to be installed when loading the bootloader? And if so can I use a SMD Edition to do it? I get the same error weather I use the Arduino Uno that I took the chip from and when I use the SMD Edition. I don't get that.

If you agree bump it by putting a comment in it.
Thanks cyclegadget. That seems like a good tutorial, the only problem is I don't have the necessary components. I can order them, but I am making a present for my friend and I am afraid that if I wait for them to be shipped I won't have enough time.
Has anyone had success using the minimal settings? If so how did you do it?
