Can not Update firmware on Galileo Rev 1 board -

I have installed 1.6.7 and got my Arduino starter kit to work right out of box on Mac OS X ElCapitain.

I had bought and never used a Gaileo Rev 1 board so I decided to give it a go - well no luck loading BLINK to it.

Looked through forums and see that a Firmware update might be required so I downloaded the app - tried it and hung for 40 minutes - then said something like update failed - tried reboot Mac and restart Galileo, etc… but no luck

Tried downloading the JAVA OS independent version also - no luck …

Have not bricked it yet; however, if I an’t get it to work - it may go to brickyard anyway and I will go back to Arduinos…

Any advice for a very NEWBIE? Just started night before last…

Thank you

by the way I have confirmed OS X sees USB Model 2641 and it is selected

progress bar moves steadily to anywhere from 60% to 90% then hangs …
