I cannot seem to make my new particle core connect to my computer. dfu-util never sees it, and neither does the particle cli.
While in dfu-mode (blinking yellow):

This is a particle core, and I have worked with these before, but not this particular one. I’ve done a factory reset and tried both of these steps again. I do wonder if this has something to do with having to re-install node, and the particle cli. I had quite a bit of trouble getting both of those to work before I even got to this point.
