Raspberry 2+ cannot install Win 10

Wed Feb 14, 2018 12:34 am

I download the win10 from microsoft website, follow the rule.
No error happened during install the TF card.
But the raspberry can only show rainbow screen, with only red light on. green light is off, no blinking.
already use the power with 5V 2A.
Raspberry is 2B+ made in 2014.

Does anyone face the same issue?
How to solve it?
or just 2B cannot install Win10?

Thank you!

You can't run Windows 10 (either desktop or server) on the Pi, but you can run the IoT version.

Which one do you want to run (if it's the former then you're out of luck)?

What download ??

The only version of Microsoft's Operating System is ""Windows 10 Internet of Things Core""

https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/w ... /Downloads


Though your issue is usually one of the following:

Voltage, whatever you are using is not providing a steady voltage.

SD Card is not Class 10 or is a Fake.

SD Card not properly created.
Adieu

Return to “Windows 10 for IoT”
