After reading the MSDN docs about creating a custom Image for Windows 10 IoT Core, I'm totally overwhelmed. I installed the required tools, got the BSP for the DragonBoard 410c and started step by step from the docs

I want to create my own image with the tools provided by MS (Windows ADK / WDK / IoT CoreADK AddonKit.

I was very unsuccessful, the documentation is very weak for boards other than RPi. So is there anyone who is experienced with creating custom Images for Windows 10 IoT Core?

What I have done so far:

Downloaded and installed the following Software

Windows ADK 1803
Windows WDK 1803
Windows10_IoTCore_Packages_ARM32_en-us_17134 (Windows10_IoT_Core_ARM_Packages.msi)
Latest iot-adk-addonkit-master

After that I launched the IotCoreShell from the iot-adk-addonkit-master and the output is as follows

IOTADK_ROOT : C:\iot-adk-addonkit-master
COREKIT_VER : 17134.1

I went ahead with the following commands:

cd .\bsptools\QCDB410C
export C:\iot-adk-addonkit-master\DB410c_BSP
buildpkg all
newproduct MyProduct QCDB410C
buildimage MyProduct Test

Everything went fine until the buildimage command, where I get an error and it aborts the process. Here is the error from the log

Creating MyProduct Test Image, see C:\iot-adk-addonkit-develop\Build\arm\MyProduct_Test.log for progress
ThreadId8768 ERROR: Please run imageapp.exe in an elevated console.

Of Course I did run the IoTCoreShell with admin privileges. So I don't know what I'm doing wrong or where the issue is.

  • Can you be more specific about where you got to? Are you looking for a full how-to for this board, or are you stuck with translating a specific step in the flow to use your BSP? May 15, 2018 at 10:38
  • @Sean Houlihane, yes i'm looking for a full how-two, because there is nowhere a detailed guide for this specific board available. I can edit my question above as soon as i'm at home, then i can describe what i have done already, but again i have no experience with that so i don't know if i made this correct. But my goal is to learn how to build images for this specific board.

  • I found this with a simple search, robtiffany.com/get-dragonboard-running-windows-10-iot-core but that would not make a good answer... May 15, 2018 at 11:12
  • Hi Andy, thank you for adding all the information. Providing full how-to's is still not the thing we do very well on Stack Exchange sites. Helping you out with your error however seems very much on-topic.

  • @Helmar if someone can give me some hints why i get this error, this should help me to test and try further and would help me very much.
