NXP FRDM K64F Board Issue

Just received the ATT Starter Kit Powered by AWS (https://starterkit.att.com/kits)

 

This is the main PDF from which i was following instructions

https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/frdm-k64f/ 

From link above, successfully downloaded the mBed Windows Serial Driver, but was stuck in updating the firmware. 

Ran across a article of issues with NXP Board and Windows 10. So made changes to the gpedit.msc as recommended in the following article: Bricking and Recovering OpenSDA Boards in Windows 8 and 10 - DZone IoT 

 

I was able to compile many programs from https://developer.mbed.org/compiler/ but has issues flashing them on to the board. The process is very random and am able to flash each program only after dozens of attempts. 

 

Over a period of 6 hours of brute force retries of downloading the bootloader and application over and over again, i was able to do 4 Labs from the file below. But this is clearly not sustainable.
