Did you join the Windows Developer Program for IoT and now you are waiting for the board or have ordered an Intel Galileo (Gen2) on which you will load the Windows image made ​​available on the official website ? Are you waiting for the board but you are curious to know what are the components included in the Windows for IoT ?


There is a solution !


After you downloaded the WIM file from the web site, it’s possibile to mount it using DISM command in the following way :


dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:<path_wim_file> /Index:1 /MountDir:<path_dir_mount>


For example :


dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\Users\ppatierno\Downloads\9600.16384.x86fre.winblue_rtm_iotbuild.140925-1000_galileo_v2.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\Galileo


ATTENTION !! You have to create the destination folder before mounting.




At the end of this operation, through Explorer you can easily see the content of Windows for your Intel Galileo on your PC !




Finally, in order to delete the folder you created, you must first run the unmounting with the following command:


dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:<path_dir_mount> /Discard
