Windows 10 boot failure

zviveredzvivered Member Posts: 35


I have an SBC (Single Board Computer) connected via PCIe to an end point card.
If this card is off, SBC boots windows 10 embedded with no problems.
But if the card is on, sometimes, boot ends with blue screen or last forever.
Currently, SBC is not running any driver for this end point.
Is it possible, using an RS232 terminal to see what is wrong in the boot sequence ?

Thank you,

    If you get a blue screen, then obviously you have a crash dump you can analyze. If you have a network adapter, you can hook up a kernel debugger. I'm not aware of any RS232 boot-time terminals for Windows, but I'm not wholly up-to-date on the IoT stuff.
