    Update: Just installed crystal and capacitors on the board and tried to burn boot loader again. 
    Success on both processors. Thanks for all the help!


    After i tried on a windows machine I will order a crystal (and caps unless i have them) from RS here in Hong Kong, with luck Ill have it tomorrow.
    Instead of Arduino IDE, what method would you recommend to burn boot loader?
            Programmer Type : USBtiny
             Description     : USBtiny simple USB programmer,
    avrdude: programmer operation not supported
    avrdude: Using SCK period of 10 usec
    avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
             Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
             this check.
    avrdude done.  Thank you.
    Error while burning bootloader.

    ah.. well thats a problem, too. I just wrote the one default in the IDE…

    Hi again,

    I know all to well what you mean by feeling silly after finding an error… Arduino is s re experience for me though.
    I did not have an external crystal installed, since the processor is not supposed to need one, I did not install it.
    I think that might be second on my todo list..
    First is to try to make an install on a Windows laptop and see how that work, I have been trying on My iMac up until now.
    This will give me a full new setup and different software installation so if the result is replicated I can look into the programmer or cable.
    As I said, I am beginner so I have mainly used the Arduino IDE to send write boot loader command to the programmer.

    I got the same result with one other processor that I bought from RS and also should be with factory settings. I think it is unlikely that both would write halfway once, even if it might happen.

    I have resolve red every joints and checked that the processor have correct vcc. The green light on the programmer is lighted and the red flashes once before I get error message rc=-1
