How to install Windows IoT core on a RaspberryPi?
Browse to the following page ; https://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/GetStarted.htm
Download the “Windows 10 IoT Core Dashboard”, install it & run it.
Now go to “Set up a new device” and press the nice button.
You will be prompted with some options, like the device type, the drive containing the sd card, etc. We choose “Raspberry Pi 2” and select the “Windows 10 IoT Core” distribution. We also choose the correct sd card and press “Download and install”.
Next up you’ll see that the image is being downloaded…
And afterwards the “Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool” will kick in.
Now the waiting has started… Go get yourself some coffee/tea/whatever. 🙂
And afterwards the installation will be finished and your sd card will look like this…
Now have fun with it!
With this tutorial I overlooked one major aspect for my testing… I have various RaspberryPi devices at home. Though when booting up the image, I always got the basic RaspberryPi debug screen.
So then it hit me… The Windows 10 IoT core has a set of compliant devices, though the v1 RaspberryPi is not supported. By doing these steps I learned that the flashing for a Windows 10 IoT core differs from a traditional raspbian, noobs, openelec, … distribution. But in all honesty, this system is very user friendly. Though I must assume that all went well, as I lack the labo (at this point) to fully test it. 🙂
