Compiling firmware

Solved

When I compile the mbed firmware and drag the BIN to the MAINTENANCE folder created on my usb drive, it disappears after dragging.  Am I missing something? Can't upload to the board and leaves me stuck.

Because the drive is being listed as "MAINTENANCE" it means the boatloader firmware isn't running on the K64F board.  The page at https://www.nxp.com/support/developer-resources/run-time-software/kineti... discusses how to upgrade the bootloader on the K64F board.  Once it is properly programmed, when connected the board will show up simply as 'e:\" for example and there will be two files listed.  Also, if you are doing this on a Windows 10 machine, check out the note on that page.  It discusses how to program the board using Windows 10.  With Windows 10, MSFT modified drive caching and it causes problems.
