Task: Install Windows Embedded Standard 7 to the Advantech AIMB-212 (Intel Atom N450) 1.66 GHz Mini-ITX Board
.. As supplied for round 2 of the Microsoft embedded Spark 2010 Summer Challenge: Build a Media device using WES 7.
Creating an x86 (32 bit) installation
Using a USB Memory stick as the installation media. (See previous blog on how to set this up).
Using a SATA Laptop Hard drive as the installation media.
Initial functionality: Windows Media plus a USB HDMI Digital TV tuner.
Also adding a Wacom MultitouchTouchpad and a Winstars USB 2.0 HD Video/Audio adapter.
Step 1: Windows 7
As discussed in previous blog, I install the desktop version of the operating system first.
That is with XP Embedded, I install XP. With WES7 I install Windows 7.
I then make sure all of the required drivers, including 3rd party devices (in this case the USB TV device) work on the system.
I am using a hard drive from another embedded system (also WES 7) that has some existi ...
Try Windows 7 first
Having specified the required solution (as submitted in Round 1 of the embedded Challenge), and purchased (or been given as with the embedded Challenge) the required hardware, the next step is make sure the system can do what is specified. Given that the solution platform is Windows Embedded Standard 7 which is really Windows 7 plus some specialised features (EEFs), my recommendation is to tests things by installing Windows 7 to the system first. This will enable you to test all drivers and additional software before developing the system. This platform can also be used for custom application development; indeed you could install Visual Studio to it and do full insitu development. If this installation is left of the development machine, then you can multi-boot between Win7 and WES7 when resolving issues. Also where there are problems with drivers under WES7 you can use the Driver Store* folder in Win 7 to get the correct driver. That can be the case for some drivers which are not ...
A USB Memory stick (or USB Hard drive) can be configured as bootable drive with the contents of an OS installation DVD
Yesterday I downloaded the Windows Embedded Standard 7 from:
This is the final (trial) version of WES7. I created a new x86 image which worked OK.
It not available yet on MSDN Subscriber Downloads.
I had some problems with this.. I downloaded both the x86 and x64 IBWs as well as the Toolkit. This consists of 3 DVDs ( 2 x IBWs + Toolkit) but you download as parts that are about 480M each and reconstruct the DVD by running the first file of each. The x86 IBW downloaded OK, but the last file for the x64 was truncated. I re-downloaded the last x64 and all worked. I had bigger problems (many files were truncated for some reason) with the toolset parts but kept re-downloading until I got it all.

I got the the WES7 box running as a Media Centre device able to show live digital TV; and record it.
I had to get the audio working on the box first. I then downloaded the driver from AV Labs and installed it. It then searched for channels when I ran Media Centre and chose Live TV. I was then able to run the box as a Digital TV at 1680 x 1050
The system was near its limit with the video throughput. Once it started recoding, things slowed or jumped a bit if I tried to watch something else.t.
I can watch and record South Park! though
Now to use API to build a wiz-bang media device.
