    I'm hoping that windows install is no different from any other x84-64 PC.

    Boot from USB device, next, yes, next, make partitions, next, go get coffee & let it do its thing.
    Set machine settings, make user, login.
    Install drivers, run windows update.

    All of them since windows 7 I think (Vista was possible, but slightly tricky to get the USB built).
    Aside from ancient 10+yo machines which don't actually support booting off thumbdrives, I can't recall the last system I installed from optical media.

    Pretty sure the current Microsoft tool will even make the USB for you.
    Expand the section titled "Perform a clean installation using a USB or DVD" and have a read.

    It is actually as easy as formatting a USB stick using Windows (to write the proper boot code) and then using a proper tool that copies hidden files to copy setup files from a mounted .iso file (Windoes 8 & up: left click) to the USB drive - or if you want to skip setup (assuming you're OK with the default language+keyboard layout until after setup (or figure out how to change it):
    In Command Prompt:
    dism /Apply-Image /?
    Get-Help Expand-WindowsImage
    The wim file is at .\sources\install.wim or .\sources\install.esd on the ISO's drive.

    There's a lot of information about Windows PE and Windows RE on Microsoft Technet as well as everything you need to build a fully custom Windows Image (.wim) or with Windows 10 perhaps including provisioning packages that you can eventually deploy to UP boards fully automated.

    Just write a page or two PowerShell to make the master image all the way from a clean installation of the Windows ADK on a technician computer to a .wim or a size-optimized .esd file that you can then deploy with a few other lines of PowerShell on the factory floor.

    I had no trouble running a LabVIEW executable on an UP board under Win10. I did not try any DAQ, but I don't think there will be any problems running VISA communications over a virtual COM port (I am partial to FTDI adapters). If you don't want to use NI-VISA, you can try the LVSERIAL library written by Martin Henz (Google it). It works pretty well on single-core processors, but IMO VISA is more stable on multi-core processors.

    I had tried use the UP Board (4 GB RAM / 32 GB eMMC) running LabVIEW on Windows 10.
    I use the NI GPIB-USB-HS to control five instruments at the same time to do some thing and generating results report,that system is functioning properly.

    Hi guys
    I want to use the UP Board for a remote application. Power provided is solar panel and battery. Currently I am using a mini PC. The problem is sometimes running off battery so the PC got an Illegal power off. And then the PC dead. My question is if UP Board can take the Illegal power off.

    I tried the battery problem and finally found a usable battery in two months. I can make the up board start smoothly and keep working for 5-8 hours. If you are interested, please send me an email to [email protected]

    Has anyone tried interfacing with the 40pin header (GPIO, I2C, SPI & UART) from Labview?
    I had no problem interfacing with NI-DAQ or RS232 to USB converters.
