Windows 10 IoT Core is a Microsoft Operating System and they are solely responsible for its continueing existance.JinShil wrote:Hello,
I'm seeing about a 1 minute boot time on the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 when using Windows 10 IoT core. By comparison, the Linux Raspian default distribution boots in less than 30 seconds on the same hardware. If I boot to a console in Raspian Linux, it's even less.
I asked a similar question a while ago here (https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forum ... WindowsIoT) but couldn't elicit any meaningful help.
Does anyone have any insight into why Windows 10 IoT is so slow to boot? Any suggestions to get it down to 30 seconds or less? I already tried a faster SD Card, but it didn't seem to make any difference whatsoever.
Also, who maintains the Windows 10 IoT port for the Raspberry Pi? Is it the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Broadcom, Microsoft, or someone else?
I used a Samsung Pro+ 32GB (https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Plus-Mic ... ro%2B+32GB) which is the fastest SD card I could find, and it made almost no difference (only about a 2s improvement) when compared to my much slower cards. So whatever is going on its not I/O bound.pauldy wrote:I have several of these now and only had boot issues with a handful of patriot sd cards so I don't use them much any more. Just as a test I started up and was on the app load screen in ~30 seconds and my app was fully loaded in 35 seconds. So it may be that booting for win iot is more io bound than your linux images so it suffers more from low quality SD cards than your linux images do.
