It can be bad power supply, this is often the case.

Also using ESP8266-12F:  I have the exact same problem on 2 different boards now.  power supply is solid.
Depending if I pull IO0 up or down I get boot code 5,7 or 7,7  followed by that exact same message:

I’m not entire daft, I have 4 other boards up and running just fine.  One of the problem boards was also running just fine before.  Do I need to re-install the bootloader, if so, any instructions on doing so?
I have been using the Arduino IDE, just upgraded the ide and all of the libraries.  There are a lot of new settings that I have been unable to find the answers for.  Is that my problem?
Recently from Arduino IDE, if I try to upload anything I get the following error report:

Arduino: 1.8.9 (Windows 10), Board: “Generic ESP8266 Module, 80 MHz, Flash, Disabled, Basic SSL ciphers (lower ROM use), none, 26 MHz, 40MHz, DOUT (compatible), 4M (no SPIFFS), 2, nonos-sdk 2.2.1 (legacy), v2 Lower Memory, Disabled, None, All Flash Contents, 115200”
at cc.arduino.packages.uploaders.SerialUploader.burnBootloader(
Error while burning bootloader.

I fond this post about the boot modes:

boot spi mode from SPI: 7,7
boot spi mode from UART: 5,7

Thanks in advance for any tips
