adrienr I a running this on Win 10.
Since a couple of revisions ago, we changed slightly how the network interface, to minimize the need for the user to install drivers:
- on MacOS 10.9 and above, the board shows up without drivers at 192.168.7.2. If the horndis drivers are installed ,it also shows up at 192.168.6.2
- on Windows Vista and above, the board shows up without drivers at 192.168.6.2. If the network drivers are installed, it also shows up at 192.168.7.2
This way, for old Windows users, nothing should change: if you previously installed drivers (as it was in our recommendations until that moment, although it would already work on Windows without drivers), the board will keep working at the 192.168.7.2. New Windows users have the option to skip installing drivers and find the board at 192.168.6.2 .
In your case, I'd guess perhaps you don't have the drivers installed on your Windows 10? Just try to look for the board at 192.168.6.2, and that will hopefully work.
On the up-side, when running your workshop, your users will likely not need to install drivers on their machines (unless they are on MacOS < 10.9, or Windows < Vista), which should hopefully minimize the setup time at the beginning of the workshop.
adrienr When I connect one of the misworking SD card directly on the laptop windows requires a formating, and suggests a capacity of 3.49Go.
The SD card has two partitions. One is a small FAT32 partition, the other one, which contains the Linux OS, is an ext4 partition. Windows cannot read the ext4 partition, and that's just fine, as you don't need to. However, Windows very naively asks you if you want to format that partition, instead of just leaving it alone. You should NOT format that partition, no matter how many times Windows asks.
- insert the SD card directly on the computer (not through the PocketBeagle)
- use an appropriate tool (e.g.: Win32 Disk Imager) to flash the image.
If the flashing is successful, inserting the SD card back in the computer will show up as a
BELABOOT partition and an "unknown/wanna format" partition.
That's good enough. You shall not copy the files from the
BELABOOT partition of the old image to the
BELABOOT of the new image, as they are incompatible.
So my guess is: just properly flash an SD card, put it in the PocketBeagle, boot and go to 192.168.6.2 : it should work.
