Arduino code wont download onto board

Hello fellow forum users. Recently I bought a Arduino board but my code wont upload even when I use the verify tool and the code is correct it still wont download.
I would appreciate feed back on the matter.

Please post the full text of any and all error messages.

Arduino: 1.6.8 (Mac OS X), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"

Sketch uses 1,334 bytes (4%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32,256 bytes. Global variables use 15 bytes (0%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2,033 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2,048 bytes. avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "COM1": No such file or directory ioctl("TIOCMGET"): Inappropriate ioctl for device Problem uploading to board. See for suggestions.

This report would have more information with "Show verbose output during compilation" option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Select the correct port from tools -> port.
