Installation of Raspberry pi windows 10 is very simple. If you are not new you know about windows 10 IoT core. But who don’t know, Windows 10 is one of the most popular operating systems. More than 1 billion devices are running on Windows 10. To jump in the IoT sector Microsoft launch a light-weight Raspberry pi windows 10. windows IoT core, for small computers like the raspberry pi.
HDMI or Mini HDMI screen According to the board, you have
Memory card 16GB+
SD card reader
windows 10 image and WoR download from the link. Download and extract it, for convenience keep them in one folder. This windows 10 image support all Raspberry pi models. Only a few steps are different we will discuss during installing windows. Actually drivers are different for different models.
Steps to Installing Raspberry pi windows 10
Navigate fo folder and Open WoR (windows on a raspberry pi) software (WoR_Release_2.0.0-alpha.3). Windows 10 IoT core Operating system is the same for Raspberry pi 4, 3, and 2. only a few Steps are different.
The first screen is welcome screen You can choose the language from here. I am comfortable in English so, I choose the English language.
The second option is to select the device. The first option is select your SD card(“Be very careful and chose correct drive”). I am going to install windows os on a Raspberry pi 3. I am choosing this Because this version is stable among all. If you want to install windows os for raspberry pi 4 select Raspberry pi 4 [ARM64]. As it is mention this version is Experimental so few services might not work.
The third step is select the image, navigate to the folder having .ffu file (“Second file having size almost 4GB”) open it. The second option is for windows edition choose (“Windows 10 Professional (en-US) build 18362.86”). This step is the same for all models of Raspberry pi.
The fourth step of windows on the raspberry pi is Driver selection. The best practice is to select (Use the latest package available on the server). If you know what you are doing then only go for the other option. Also, this step is the same for all other models.
The fifth step is the UEFI firmware. Select Use the latest firmware available on the server in the firmware source. Also select pftf/RPi3, for Raspberry pi4 this option will be pftf/RPi4 this option is default selected according to the selected model in case if you get something else so select the correct option.
Accept the license agreements.
The next option is Configuration the option is automatically selected so strait away presses next.
The next option is Install and overview here last time to verify all your selected options. Make sure Target device is your SD card. If Everything is fine click Install.
Window installation starts this will take time in my case it takes almost 20 minutes.
Final run of windows OS on Pi
Installation of the window is done now plug your SD card on Raspberry Pi, connect a mouse, Keyboard, Screen, and power it. After a few basic Configuration like language, time, etc. your windows IoT core is ready to use.
