I have scoured the web looking for some indication of what I'm doing wrong to no avail. Here is what I've got:

  • Raspberry Pi 3 - Model B V1.2 2015
  • Lexar 300x 64GB Micro SD
  • Windows IOT Core Dashboard Link

I have tried everything in this Post, and several others.

Question: How can I get Windows IOT Core running on my Raspberry Pi 3?

Amendment I see all of the files on the SD, if I plug it into my PC. When I fire up the Raspberry PI, I get flashing red and green then just flashing red. Hooked HDMI up and see nothing. Can't ping the Raspberry and it doesn't show up as a device in the Windows IOT Dashboard.

    Could you tell us what exactly isn't working? E.g. what LEDs light up on your Pi, have you tried a different OS or SD?

It looks like you're using an SD card which isn't supported - that might be the problem.

You can find a list of supported SD cards here.

I had similar problems to you with this process when I used a 64GB unsupported card - after I swapped it for a card on the supported list, I was able to install Windows 10 IOT Core and run it successfully.

I'd recommend you try setting up a supported SD card through the Windows IOT Dashboard and follow the setup process here. I found it helpful to have the Pi connected to my router by a cable for the first boot, and also to connect a USB keyboard and HDMI monitor also.

  • Thanks I'll give that a try. I remember reading that, and thinking no way thats the issue, but the fact that you experienced this issue directly give me the confidence I need to go buy another SD card.

  • That was it. Who'd a thunk?! - Thanks Jeremy. I guess all SD cards are not created equal :)
