First Boot with Windows 10 IoT Core on my DragonBoard 410C


Recommended Posts


I Finally did it -- having a good power supply made all the difference -- this DragonBoard is cool --


I followed Microsoft’s instructions (see References below) to Set up my PC – Installed the DragonBoard update Tool – Downloaded the DragonBoard Win10 IoT Core Image – Downloaded Windows 10 and Installed Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition.  Then I followed Mocrosoft’s instructions (see References below) to Set up my Device (i.e. DragonBoard 410c) – after reviewing the list of things I needed I then Connected the DragonBoard 410c to the Host PC – Downloaded the Windows 10 IoT Core Image to the DragonBoard 410c – then I was ready for my FIRST BOOT during which I connected my DragonBoard 410c to my wireless network (this was cool). 



Originally, I was using a universal generic power supply but it either did not have to capacity to power the DragonBoard 410c at First Boot or the connection was too lose – I ordered and used the WM24P-12-A-QL power supply recommended by Arrow and had no problems powering the DragonBoard 410c at First Boot.  I could have saved myself a lot of time and trouble by ordering the WM24P-12-A-QL earlier when I originally ordered the DragonBoard 410c.

I want to get some practice with Visual Studio 2015 and writing/loading Windows Apps on my Pi2 & DragonBoard 410c while also looking for projects I can do with my grandkids (in addition to building model Rockets etc. J ) to show them how much fun STEM subjects can be.  Down the road I have some ideas for just some basic home automation/power management.


I learned that these boards are powerful learning tools used in engineering programs – an understanding that was emphasized most recently with me when I had an opportunity to talk with Purdue’s Dr. George Adams and Dr. Leah Jamieson. 


Besides, they’re fun to play with J
