pi 3 support

Mon Feb 29, 2016 9:04 pm

So big question is,

Is the wireless and ble on the pi3 supported in the current /latest built of win10iot core?

If yes it would greatly improve connectivity to the pi3 and give me more reason to buy one

As you're asking a question about the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and expecting an answer, why not post your question in The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Q&A thread?

Pi2B Mini-PC/Media Centre: ARM=1GHz (+3), Core=500MHz, v3d=500MHz, h264=333MHz, RAM=DDR2-1200 (+6/+4/+4+schmoo). Sandisk Ultra HC-I 32GB microSD card on '50=100' OCed slot (42MB/s read) running Raspbian/KODI16, Seagate 3.5" 1.5TB HDD mass storage.

As Windows 10 IoT Core is a MS Product you should be reading their Blogs for Release Information:

@ GTR2Fan i posted here as it is a win 10 IOT related question, if it wanted specific information like what are the std's supported by the wifi ( b,g, n etc) then i would have posted in the pi 3 forum as the question would not have been OS specific

@ fruitoftheloom i asked the question here as i would hope to get a quicker answer as people will try the pi3 with the latest IOT build once they start recieiving them and see if they can access the new hardware (wifi / ble), i would assume the foundation would have tested with IOT or provided information to MS so it is supported relatively quickly (quick in the MS world can be an interesting concept)

The RPF only supply the required Drivers / Firmware, MS undertake the implementation and testing, the same as any Other Operating System.. The RPF only support Raspbian Jessie OS..

You will need a Microsoft Account to download the Windows 10 IoT Core Insider Preview which is compatible with RPi 3B:

I've PI3 on order from Farnell, but I don't know when will be shipped ..
It's not really clear about installing Pi3 win10iot from MS.. The insider preview ISO is still version 14262.1000 .. May be new version for Pi3 is downloaded using Dashboard ... unless build 14262 has built-in direct support of Pi3... :o
MS IOT, for now, has no support for PI3 bluetooth and wifi it seems ...

I've tried 14262.1000 on my RPi3, but it doesn't work. It keeps getting stuck at
"Welcome to Windows 10 IoT Core
Please wait while we get things ready".
Hope they fix this soon.

I was afraid of that ... Very strange anyway, because MS claims Pi3 compatibility on official Iot site ... :?:

Neither NOOBS nor manual install of the insider version have worked for me. They both got stuck at the same point. Have you actually gotten it to work?

I aslo tried installing raspbian on the same µSD Card and that worked just fine.

Okay, last time I installed windows 10 on a pi 3, it didn't ask me to sign in. Trying to make an account was an awful experience, so I think I'll pass.

Only will ask for a "MS Live (or similar) Account" login if installing Insider Preview ;)

Oh no, I cancelled it as soon as I saw their registration form. I was just saying that NOOBS installs the insider preview now, even though the previous version NOOBS provided ran on the pi3 also.

It was a problem with my µSD Card. I bought a different µSD and it worked just fine. It's a 16GB SanDisk Ultra 533X UHS-1 card.

Onboard WiFi & BT on Pi 3 with current latest Insider Preview build 14262 of IoT... no go.

It's a fair question for the OP to ask as it's not immediately clear unless you stumble on the correct page from MS...

http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/w ... atsNew.htm
Coming Soon in a future release of Windows IoT Core Insider Preview
•Onboard WiFi & Bluetooth, but in the meantime you can still use a compatible USB WiFi/Bluetooth dongle.
I ordered on the basis on the blog entries and suggestion was that the Pi 3 is fully supported with the latest Insider Preview.

Not complaining as I can wait for a release that does support the onboard WiFi, just it's a slight niggle if you've just got it, flashed away, going through the set up and then it says it can't find the WiFi device. Just means I have to dig out an Ethernet cable and find a spare port on a switch somewhere for the time being.

Hopefully "coming soon" is not far off.

BT is more of a disappointment as I wanted to play with that. I don't really want to buy the dongle as being built in is a large point of the Pi 3. Still, hopefully soon.
