Burning bootloader to Nano

I have loaded the ArduinoISP sketch to my uno. I have connected the nano to the uno as indicated in the instructions on the arduino site. I selected nano as the board and arduino as isp as the programmer. I click burn bootloader and get this message:

avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x10

What does this mean?

Try connecting a 10 uF capacitor between the GND and RESET pins of the Uno.

That didn't work. I tried the cap both ways. Is it possible to remove the chip from the uno and program it that way?

No, that will not provide the control the MISO/MOSI/SCK/Reset lines needed to install a bootloader on a Nano. You need a Programmer for that. Either the Uno withthe correct program and connections, or a separate Programmer. I find a separate Programmer to be less fiddly, and I bootload a lot of chips.

Do you mean a programmer such as the FTDI USB serial adapter?

This is the one I have.

USB TTL Adapter

Could I possibly and simply connect the Rx and Tx of the two and make it work?

"arduino as ISP" should work fine.
Verify that you have selected "arduino as ISP" and NOT "arduino ISP"

i usually use this

Just to be sure, by "instructions on the arduino site", do you mean this page?:

No. There is supposedly some hacky way to make an ISP programmer out of one of those but it's a very advanced process and using your Uno as an "Arduino as ISP" will be far superior.

Those FT232 modules are super handy to have on hand, but probably not needed for this project, since the Nano essentially has one of those already built in to the board.

You were on the right track with the Arduino as ISP.

Ok. So I will revert back to the uno as isp. I will also have to revert back to troubleshooting my errors which I will post back here later today. Thanks.
