Update FRDM bootloaders using only Windows 10
Windows 10 will not allow you to drag and drop files to the FRDM boards (with older bootloaders)
Is it possible to replace the Bootloader from Windows 10 with no extra hardware?
As far as I can see, the only methods are: 1. Find a Win7 PC from somewhere. Copy-Paste a replacement OPENSDA file to each FRDM board. 2. Mount a JTAG header and program the OPENSDA chip via an external J-Link debugger.
It would be useful to have a step-by-step guide.

There has been an update for DAPLink and the bootloader. Have a read through this blog. https://os.mbed.com/blog/entry/DAPLink-bootloader-update/

I was able to do this by piecing together information I found. I updated the bootloader on several boards using only Windows 10.
1) Run gpedit.msc as Administrator and enable "Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Search \ Do not allow locations on removable drives to be added to libraries."
2) Bring up board in Bootloader mode (hold reset button while plugging in to computer)
3) Copy new bootloader to board.
4) Power cycle board in non-bootloader mode (do not hold the reset button down while plugging the board back in. It should still come up in bootloader mode. If you power cycle in bootloader mode (with reset pressed) the device will not be reprogrammed.) Check the SDA_INFO.HTM file for updated version numbers.
