Windows iOT Core On Raspberry Pi Zero RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I know that the Pi Zero isn't compatible with iOT Core because it uses a different chip, but does anyone know in a future build if Zero will be supported?

  • Hello Ryanhav,

    Based on http://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-79263/l/introducing-the-raspberry-pi-zero this chip only supports ARMv6 so is not new enough to support Windows for IoT Core.

  • Noob Alert !

    I bought a Pi Zero and experienced my first rainbow screen of death (better than blue I suppose:)

    Did a bit of research on the Zero and found ..

    "However, as it does not run the same chip as the Pi 2, you won't be able to run Windows 10 IoT"

    Nooooo... I need a tiny board and I need Windows :(

    Is there any chance that WIoT will ever run on a Zero ?

  • No chance. IoT Core requires ARMv7 Vfp3 D32 support at minimum as well as a BSP (Board Support Package) from the OEM to run Windows 10 IoT Core Edition.

    Please choose one of the platforms from WindowsOnDevices.com if you want to try IoT Core. https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot/Explore/deviceoptions

  • Using Windows IoT Dashboard, will Windows IoT Core work on a Raspberry Pi Zero-wireless?  I have flashed the microSD card and am trying to boot up the first time.  After 15-20 minutes, the device is still not recognized.  Is the first boot going to take "like forever" since its a single core, not a quad core?  Or is Windows IoT Core only going to work on a Raspberry Pi 2/3?

    Thanks for the help and info,
