Mac users, you can skip to the next part of the tutorial - you don't need to install any drivers!
For Windows users, you'll need to install the drivers for the Flora. Begin by plugging in the Flora board. Look for a green power LED (left of the mini USB jack) and a pulsing red LED (right of the mini USB jack).
WinXP users, skip down past these few photos, you should get a popup asking you for a driver location, just browse to it as shown.
you'll have to enable installation of unsigned drivers, check out this document from microsoft on how to do it In order to get the drivers working in Windows 8 (as Device Manager is NOT an option) is to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement.
First, right-click on the downloaded Adafruit Flora.inf that's in flora-x.x.x\drivers (you downloaded the IDE and expanded it, right?) and select Unblock and click Apply.
Open an Administrive Command Prompt (on Start Screen type cmd) and when Command Prompt shows, right click it and at the bottom left click "Run as Administrator".
Once opened, type: BCDEDIT /Set LoadOptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
Hit Enter and now Type: BCDEDIT /Set TESTSIGNING ON
Hit Enter, and Reboot PC. (thanks lance!)
When you get this scary window next, click Install this driver software anyway.
