NOOBS having problems installing Windows IOT core

Tue Jun 26, 2018 7:23 pm

I have several raspberry pi devices running windows IOT core. I am trying to set up a new one and am getting some errors while attempting to install the operating system. I was using an older version of NOOBS and was hoping the latest release would resolve the errors, but no such luck. The errors are as follows:

"Error downloading or extracting tarball

wget: unable to resolve host address 'iottools.blob.core.windows.net'"


I have also gotten errors regarding meta files. the above error has been consistently there though. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

That's because Win10 IoT for RPi3B+ wasn't ready when NOOBS 2.8.1 was created and it still isn't available out of beta.

Stop using NOOBS.

You can get the stable image from https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/w ... /downloads
You can get the 3B/3B+ beta from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softwar ... windowsiot
