Hi,
i am trying to flash boot-loader on ATmega328 using Arduino Nano.
I have done the connection as follows
Arduino Pin 13 -> chip pin 19.
Arduino Pin 12 -> chip pin 18.
Arduino Pin 11 -> chip pin 17.
Arduino Pin 10 -> chip pin 1 Reset

i m using 8MHz crystal and 22pf capacitor connected on pin 9 and 10.

Here part of boards.txt file i have added.
Code:

Both configuration is not working.

I am getting following error after trying to flash bootloader.
Code:
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x15
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 2 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x15

avrdude: stk500_getparm(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x14

avrdude: stk500_getparm(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x01
avrdude: stk500_initialize(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x10
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
        Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
        this check.

avrdude: stk500_disable(): unknown response=0x12
Error while burning bootloader.
Connected 10uf capacitor between VCC and GND also.
And my arduino ide version is 1.8.8.


Any help will be appreciated...

Were you able to setup/burn Arduino as ISP example program into Nano ?

Many NANOs not shipped with their own correct bootloader, I took one out
of the packaging and had to use a UNO to get NANOs bootloader installed
correctly.

Google this "arduino nano bootloader"

yes, i could flash the Arduino ISP example code into Nano.

Yes, mine is with Old bootloader. do i need to update it with latest one?

If you go on youtube you can actually burn a UNO boot loader into NANO making
it look like a UNO, and its smaller, faster uploads as a result. Works because they
both use same processor, V3.0 and up I think on NANO.
