STM32F407-DISC1 Startup

Hello there, Greetings.


I bought a Discovery board recently. Following are the details:


1] STM32F407G-DISC1

2] Model MB997D

3] ST-LINK both Jumpers in place

4] JP1, JP2 and JP3 in place

5] Using Windows 10 

I downloaded the proper drivers from the ST website. The drivers installed but I cannot find the board in the Device Manager! So when I upgrade the firmware, it does not detect the board! I have attached that images too. Please NOTE that the LD1 is not steady, it blinks constantly at a certain rate.

Someone suggested that this is an OS issue. Additionally, also that the miniUSB-USB cable might be another issue but I have used 2 such brand new cables [1 meter in length]. Then, is there an issue with the USART to USB dongle? Am I supposed to use such dongle to make the board transfer data over the USB? Is the miniUSB-USB connection not sufficient?

I am in dire need of help. Please help. I will appreciate it. Have a great day.#
