Ok, so I've been printing with this setup for a few days without issues. Upgraded mainboard from 1.1.bzzzzgrind to 4.2.7 and still printed just fine. (added a bltouch) I installed the firmware for 2208 drivers (like my ebay listing said it had) and nothing moved. Put in the 2225 version and everything started working fine again. And now I start getting permission denied on attempted serial connection to the printer. Searched for a few hours and didn't find anything about this issue on this setup. So I know this might be odd but I'm posting this AFTER I fixed the issue and I just want to share.
Should work on any windows version since this is a trick I used when fixing peoples computers back in the Win3.1 and 95 days. Right click on your computer. Icon on the desktop, the one on the left bar in file explorer, just find something that says my computer and right click it. Select "manage" option and a really dangerous window comes up. Don't change anything and looking around should be fine. Click on device manager on the left and then look at the right for the section labled "Ports (COM&LPT)" and you should see the com port your printer is on. Right click that and select "Uninstall Device" and make sure you DO NOT check the box to remove the drives too. Unplug your printer now and DO NOT plug it back in yet. Restart the computer, restart octoprint, open your browser interface, and then plug in the printer and use the auto connect again. If this fails, repeat and remove drivers. Reinstall drivers before plugging in printer this run.
Hope this helps someone else.
Yeah Still a problem though. I have to do this whole procedure every single time I unplug the printer or loose connection. I need to find out how to give this thing permission. I'll go find those logs but here's a few more details about my setup.

Going to find where this install stores it's logs/files and post em. I can recreate this error at will. +edit Enabled serial logging and will post logs at earliest convenience. (currently printing - calibration)octoprint.log.2021-01-17.log (306.7 KB)
