Installing Windows 10 IoT build 10152

After 2 builds, we are now seeing another fresh build #10152.

I was waiting for this one with huge expectations on Wifi and Bluetooth but not sure. Release notes are here http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/win10/ReleaseNotes.htm

This time the Windows 10 Team have made the installation a bit easier.

Let walk through the Installation process which is very straightforward. 
  • Download the latest build 10152 from here https://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/Downloads.htm
  • You will get a ISO file. 
  • Extract it/Mount it to get a MSI file of around 600 MB. 
  • Double-click on it to start the install on your windows PC (preferably Windows 10 although not required as we now have all the required files needed to extract packaged in). 
  • Couple of click and it should be installed. 





  •  Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft IoT\ to find the installed files.

Lets get started with flashing the new image to the Micro SD card

  • Start the IoTCoreImageHelper.exe



  • Choose your SD card.
  • Click on Browse. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft IoT\FFU\RaspberryPi2\ and choose flash.ffu
  • And click Flash.
  • You should see a command prompt window running DISM to do the flashing. 
  • The command window closes once its complete. 
  • Remove the SD card and plug into you RPI2 to get started 
Enjoy J
