I downloaded the FTDI driver and now it is asking for the com port and I went to the control panel and I went to device manager than I have no idea where to go from there



It’ll be called “USB Serial Port (COMX)” under the Ports section. If it’s not showing, reboot the PC and also disconnect and reconnect the USB cable.

your comment about the OP having their original boxes. I do agree that owning an carve requires a spirit of learning and exploration beyond what was demonstrated/communicated here, I have a personal love for the ‘do you still have the boxes’ burn. that said… Id love to see this remain a community where the noobs are welcome. even the ones who don’t know where to find connected serial ports in the windows system device manager
