Bootloading arduino

hello friends, I have been bootloading atmega328 IC using another arduino UNO board as programmer. I want to know the same can be done with arduino mega2560 I mean can I burn bootloader into new atmega 2560 IC using arduino mega 2560 like uno.

thanks in advance

That should be possible as well.

I don't think the ArduinoISP sketch supports the STK500V2 protocol needed to bootloader the larger processors like the ATmega2560. I recommend you spend $5 to get a USBasp programmer via eBay.

Or use Nick Gammon's bootloader installer sketch. http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=11635
