Re: Install OS without overwrite in PINN

A bit of a status update:
Windows IoT Core is installed
I am yet to install Raspbian and other operating systems into the 3 ProjectSpaces.

Re: Install OS without overwrite in PINN

When I say "installed first" I don't mean it is the one at the top of the list. I mean it should be installed at the same time as your first set of OSes/project spaces just after the sd card has been wiped and repartitioned by PINN. I mean that it is not possible to install it later by replacing an...

Re: Install OS without overwrite in PINN

Yes you can do that. But RiscOs is another odd one and needs to be installed at the start with WioIoT. It cannot be installed into a ProjectSpace. Ok. But it wasn't installed first and it worked fined. BTW, I think the error was relating to "dirty partition" or "bad partition" or something. I don't...

Re: Install OS without overwrite in PINN

How do I make it install at the beginning, instead of as the 4th OS to install (like it did for me?) At the beginning of the OS list? You can't determine the order of installation, I'm afraid. The order is determined by whatever order PINN discovers the OSes in. And is there a way to install more o...

Re: Install OS without overwrite in PINN

The projectSpaces supplied with PINN are for typical OSes that use 2 partitions: 1 FAT32 for boot, and 1 EXT43 for the rootfs. WinIoT does not match this partition layout so it cannot be installed into the supplied projectspaces. However, there is nothing to stop you from creating your own type of ...

Re: Install OS without overwrite in PINN

Yes you could just start again. Bear in mind that because Windows uses its own installer, the progress bar will not advance properly as it installs. You could always create your own projectSpace for WinIoT to defer installation to another time. Compare the ProjectSpace metafiles with those of Raspb...

Install OS without overwrite in PINN

I tried to install Windows 10 IoT Core but it failed. I also have Raspbian and RISC installed and I don't want to go through the install process again. Is there a way for me to install Windows 10 IoT core WITHOUT removing existing operating systems?

BTW, pressing PgDown crashes PINN.

Whoever else has encountered this problem or has a different view upon the problem is highly welcomed to suggest what is wrong i.e What I am doing wrong.
How big is your SD card?

You could also try a direct install or NOOBS.

My ACT LED is yellow. Is your Pi in a case? The ACT LED can look yellow because the light from the red LED mixes with the green inside the case. It is in a case, I'll take it out and look when I get the chance. I remember it was yellow on my Pi 1b at least. I thought it was on the 3b+ too, but I'll...

It's the ACT LED next to the red PWR LED.

Since you said it's getting hot (SOC, right?), you probably blew something out.

I got something slightly similar, where my config.txt was reverting changes after every reboot. What happened was the partitions were mapped wrong so a USB drive was mapped to /boot after booting. This could be your problem, but maybe not. I fixed it with a reinstall. I feel like it had something to...
