Burning a bootloader into an arduino in Energia - MSP Posted June 27, 2013 Nah, without modification Energia can not burn an Arduino Bootloader on an Atmega328.However, you can try to adapt the ArduinoISP sketch to Energia. Burning the Arduino Bootloader on a bare chip utilizing another Arduino works by loading the ArduinoISP sketch on the working Arduino, and connecting the bare chip to this Arduino. This way, the Arduino acts as a programmer to burn all the necessary bits and bytes on the bare chip to make it an Arduino, too.What you want to do can be described as following:You want to make the ArduinoISP sketch work in Energia, so you can program the MSP430 on your Launchpad with it.Your Launchpad now acts as an Arduino with the ArduinoISP sketch loaded on it. It is an AVR ISP programmer now. Therefore you should be able to burn the Arduino bootloader on an blank Atmega328 with the stock Arduino IDE (pc software). The question is if the ArduinoISP sketch can be adapted to Energia.
