Windows, as far as I know, doesn't have any built in utility for burning images to SD cards.
However there is a good free utility called Win32DiskImager which you can get free here.
This is the utility the people over at Raspberry PI recommend using.
It's easy, just point the thing at your .direct file, and at your SD Card and click 'write'.
If you have any problems post back here and we'll help you out :-)
Also, if you have access to an Apple Mac you can use it's built in utility, the instructions are slightly different from the Ubuntu instructions in the IoT tutorial, but basically follow the instructions here.
Than you very much just one more question if you don't mind your linki is to a .direct file from May whereas the one on the intel adt page is from feb - just wondering what the difference is. I've tried the may one but it won't assign an ip dhcp so i can't ssh to it with putty. I( am now trying the feb one
The file on my own website was built following the instructions on the IoT ADT page.
It is the results of following the instructions in the pdf document here and is based on the '140220' (20th February 2014) source package.
I find that the IoT DevKit image is great, and is my standard image now. It has all the devtools built in and you can use opkg to get, install and update hundreds of packages from intel's repository.
It is also fast, it boots and shuts down much faster than some of the other images about. It includes a web server, GCC and G++, debug tools, debug server and so on. It does not run arduino Sketches.
I hope this helps.
I don't know why you can't get DHCP IP address, as that is exactly what I am doing, without modification.
Are you sure you are booting from the SD Card and not the Flash?
Hi I have now put the image on the intel page on and I have got a dhcp ip. I might try yours again but not now as this seems to work and I've been at it for a few days
Hopefully I will be able to control the GPIO using gallileo
-io npm package and also run socket.io npm package
we shall see!
Hi I wonder if you could give me one more pointer (this is actually with the original ADT 200MB image on the IOT page)
I can't get pin 13 to light an LED - I know it works because i tried it with no SD card and blink
however I cannot control it either with galileo-io or using sysfs as per Intel Galileo - Programming GPIO From Linux - Malinov Family Web Presence
ps or any of the pins it seems
I'd suggest you start a new discussion for this topic, as it's is quite different from the original SD Card question.
@SpiderKenny: actually you can run Arduino sketches on the devkit image. You'd have to build a eglibc toolchain and put it into Arduino IDE as described in my comments on this thread: https://communities.intel.com/message/230706#230706
Great, thanks !
