board huzzah (platform esp8266, package esp8266) is unknown?

I get a compiling error trying to upload the blink sketch. I double checked the board settings, changed the cable, and tried installing the serial driver twice. I also went to the adafruit page and tried the suggestion there using the generic esp8266 module with the same result (the only difference being it states "error compiling for board generic ESP8266 Module instead of Huzzuh). Any thoughts?

I'm going to answer my own question. I researched further into this. I removed and reinstalled the Generic ESP8266 board support package and HUZZAH! it works.
