[SOLVED] Error: uploading program to esp8266

Hey guys!

I am probably really stupid, but I am stuck here for hours.
I bought the esp8266 dev board, and first thing I am trying to do is just to upload any project! Meaning “blink”.
I did install the ESP Board, selected “Generic ESP8266 Module”, selected the right COM (eventhough the name of the board is not shown next to the COM), and just tryed to upload.

Following error:
warning: espcomm_sync failed
error: espcomm_open failed
error: espcomm_upload_mem failed
error: espcomm_upload_mem failed

I am not even able to let it blink :confused:
I already searched for similar threads, but i couldn’t really fix the issue.

Sounds like a driver problem.

What OS are you using a provide a link to the ESP you bought.

Then Google driver for ESP of your OS.

Thanks man! I solved the problem myself :DDDDD
The Board i have to select should not be Generic ESP8266 Module but instead NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module).
