Install the board cores and drivers

Install cores

Open the IDE. Select TOOLS.
Install core 01.png
Select Board the Board Manager.

When the box opens up wait until it has downloaded any new or updated items.
Then in the blank box type the board you wish to install.
You do not always need the full name.

Select the correct variation and click the INSTALL option.
Please be patient and wait until it has finished.
Although not needed I often RESTART the IDE at this point.
