  3. The mounted virtual drive contains an installer file “Windows_10_IoT_Core_QCDB410C.msi”. Double click the file to start the installation.

    The installer creates a new directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft IoT\FFU\QCDB410C\ which contains the DragonBoard410c image file “flash.ffu”.

    Unlike Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 and Minnowboard Max, we will not be applying this FFU to an SD card. Instead, we will use this flash file on the next page.
