For info only..
From the boards selection I have these three extra and I can't remember when or how I installed them....
Atmel atmega328p Xplained mini
Atmel atmega328pb Xplained mini
Atmel atmega168p Xplained mini
Choosing either 1 or 2 from the above seems to be the only way I can get the sketch to upload.
Ignore above :)
As you mentioned CH340 is the chip not board (sorry I keep referring to the cheap clones in bulk by the chip).
Correct me if I am wrong, does that simply mean that once I install the drivers (done) there should be no further setup with arduino ide? IE I can simply set the Board and Programmer and it should work?
If so can you please clarify the programmer and board I need to choose for sanity sake..
Arduino/Genuino UNO (since its a UNO clone)
Arduino as ISP
Thank you for the help, greatly appreciated.
