NOOBS wont install Windows IoT Core

Mon Apr 30, 2018 5:00 am

Hi

I'm trying to install windows IoT core in my Raspberry Pi 3 Model b but it keeps coming up with a notice saying "this version of NOOBS does not currently support automated installation of windows 10 IoT core". Then says to visit a website and that doesn't say anything on getting windows either. The website is http://aka.ms/windowsonrpi and it is just on IoT core dashboard so it is not any use to me. Also I'm using a mac for all of this so it is even harder.
Has anyone got any advise for me or a solution to fix this problem?
Thanks
Seb

From what I gather, you can download an ISO from here: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/w ... /Downloads

It's not clear what that ISO does. Perhaps it's just an image you can flash to a card and boot on a Pi.

You're best off asking MS themselves. Their site doesn't make it easy to find useful information.

Do not use NoobS, on your Windows 10 PC install the "Dashboard" from the link posted above.

You will need a W10 PC to develop and deploy as W10IOT is not a Desktop Operating System.

Hi,

anyone got windows IoT core working?

should it really work only with a 16GB sd card?
i have tried 32GB version and a 128 GB version but without luck.

thanks in advance,

Hi quintendc,

I have got it working. On 32Gb mSD card. IoT Dashboard is not installable on Win10 any more, the setup.exe dies with an "Unknown Pulisher" error... soo typical Microsoft. NOOBS doesn't work either right now. So we are out of simple solutions at the moment.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Short Version with torrent download:
Download this torrent. I am seeding it from 2 different location, with not os good upload speed, so download is gonna be slow at first. It is a magnet link:

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:dd9f0ba1b1298b63d3d399150243de9ef1da0178&dn=Windows%20IoT%20for%20RPi2-3.img&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.coppersurfer.tk%3a6969%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.opentrackr.org%3a1337%2fannounce

It contains an IMG file that is about 3.5Gb big. Flash it onto your microSD card you want to put in Rpi, with Rufus. That is all.

Rufus
To do that, download Rufus Portable here: https://github.com/pbatard/rufus/releas ... s-3.4p.exe
Run Rufus (better if you Run as Administrator), from Device dropdown menu, select your SD card. At Boot Selection on the right, click on SELECT, than select the IMG file you just downloaded by the torrent above. Than hit START at the botom. Wait for it to finish. You are done. Put the mSDcard into you Pi3.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Long version no torrent needed
Step 1 – Download "Microsoft 10 IoT Core for Raspberry 2 / 3" the actual downloadable file that contains the OS here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=53360

Step 2-3-4 – It's an ISO file, so extract it (with winrar or so) or mount it (on Windows eg.: Daemon Tools). We get an MSI file from it. Extract the MSI and you get an FFU file. (There are compression tools that can do it.) If you are using Windows, you can run this MSI file, then it unpacks itself to c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft IoT\FFU\RaspberryPi2\. There is the flash.ffu file we need.

You need to convert the .ffu file to a .img in order to flash it onto a SD card.

Step 5 – Download the ffu2img tool https://raw.githubusercontent.com/t0x0/ ... ffu2img.py (right click, than 'Save as’)

Step 6 – To run the ffu2img tool, you must have Python installed – you can download it here: https://www.python.org/downloads/ (use the 2.7.x branch not the 3.x.x).

Step 7 – Run ffu2img.py to create IMG file
I assume, that you installed Python in the C:\PYthon27\ folder (on Windows). So copy everything there: flash.ffu and ffu2img.py .

Open a command prompt and run the ff2img tool from the command line.

C:\Python27>python ffu2img.py flash.ffu
Result should be like this:
Input File: flash.ffu
Output File: flash.img
Block data entries begin: 0x600f8L
Block data entries end: 0x7e1c8L
Block data chunks begin: 0x80000L
7692 blocks, 984576kb written - Delay expected. Please wait.
Write complete.


Wait a while – it will take some time to convert the image. If you get an write error try opening the command prompt as an administrator.

Step 8 – Flash the result, flash.img file to your SD Card. Follow Rufus section above. Done.

On linux or mac, you can make the uncompressions and unpackings of Step 2-3-4 accordingly, by other tools and programs. Also, you can install and run Python on them Step 6-7. Replace Rufus part with DD. Just dd the IMG file onto unmounted dev, which should be your mSDcard. This IMG file contains several partitions. I think you need to use dd like this "dd if=flash.img of=/dev /sdx" without the "/" at the end of /dev/sdx. However I have not tested it on mac or linux. It was done on Win7 and Win10.
