I'm trying to boot up the brand new Windows CE 7 on the BeagleBoard. I
can get the Windows CE 6.0 demo image from MPC to boot up. But not CE
I've tried building some NK.bin files using Platform Builder in Visual
Studio 2008, then booting with MLO and ebootsd. The BeagleBoard gives
it a good try, but the kernel does not boot.
Anyone know how to do this?
What BSP are you using? I'm not aware of a WEC7 BSP being publicly
available for the BeagleBoard yet. It would be helpful to know exactly
what you are using as a starting point.
I'm using the Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSP for the TI OMAP
environment that comes with Platform Builder for Visual Studio.
I see from an email today that MPC has come out with a demo version of
Embedded Compact 7 that runs on the BeagleBoard. I have not tried that
yet. And of course, their version of the full-feature BSP would suit
my needs fine. The $500 price tag is the problem.
Unfortunately there are quite a few changes required to port from the
OMAP 3530 EVM to the Beagleboard. This will equate to more than $500
in development costs in the commercial world. Do you have any BSP
porting experience? If not then the most cost effective option will be
to purchase the BSP source code license.
Thanks for the information. I'm just trying out the BeagleBoard to see
if it will work for a project I'm working on. Nothing commercial -- at
least yet. More like a hobbyist.
I've tried out both Angstrom and Ubuntu on the BeagleBoard. I thought
I would try out Windows CE, especially the real-time capability. But I
was naive about how porting it works. Now I know better.
Thanks again. This forum is very helpful.
