Windows CE 7 OS image deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I have generated the OS image (NK.bin) with my configurations.

    My target machine has a SATA hard disk and i need to install this image on this HD and boot from it.

    Please let me know the steps on how to install this image on HD and boot from it. If there is a tutorial on the same, please let me know.

     

    Thanks,

    Fazlin

  • Typically the nk.bin file is all you need. If the bootloader is something specific provided with the BSP/board you should have some documentatio about it, otherwise you may refer to MSDN

  • If you have an x86 based machine you should be able to boot the OS using the BIOS bootloader or DOS (loadcepc) since the BIOS will handle the low level details of accessing the (SATA) disk

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I have the bootloader so i can use it to boot from HD.

    My question is - What data should be present on HD? Is it enough that i write the NK.bin to the HD or should i anything more?

    Pardon me if it is silly question :)

  • I did try copying the NK.bin to a FAT formatted compact Flash and tried to boot from this CF. The machine also had a SATA hard disk.

    When i booted up, following error came up:

    "Remove disks or other media.. Press any key to restart"

    I then removed the SATA HD and had only the CF. When i booted with this Setup, i see only a black screen and nothing else after BIOS bootup logo.

    Am i missing anything?
