Ah great, Can you try this please. We need to find the lowest value.

1)

Code:
upload.pause_before_ms=100 



2)

also try with # up front and no value just to confirm it beccomes a problem again.
Code:
#upload.pause_before_ms=100 




note: When you change board.txt, click Save, otherwise the file is saved after the build has read it

Thank you

Excuse for the long delay to respond,

I have bad news,  on my desktop it's work with 1000ms delay without capacitor , but on my laptop it doesn't work with any value from 100ms to 5000ms.  I have this error message:

A fatal error occurred: Failed to connect to ESP32: Wrong boot mode detected (0x13)! The chip needs to be in download mode.

if I place my capacitor on the reset (en) pin it is working,  It's look like a wrong delay between the reset and the bootload mode pin, RTS and CTS

I will try later this week on my desktop with lower value, now it is working with 1000ms

Thanks

The previous thread suggested same issue in Arduino and therefore is related to the tool chain.

However it will be useful to see the information request in yellow above for both laptop and pc.

Thanks

That is the information about each pc. It is different to the information requested in yellow above.

The output are the same on each PC,  It's a timing problem in the uploader tool that not respect the appropriate timing between the assert and release reset pin and GPIO that put the MCU in bootloader mode.  Placing the capacitor is a good workaround for the moment.

Thanks for all your time

Thanks for the update. It is possible the two pc's are using a different usb driver version. The output would shows that but instead you could check in device manager.

Other than that, yes agree, it's either a design issue with the board on windows or possibly something the toolchain can manage. It might be worth reporting to the manufacturers to see what they say.
