Step 1: Assemble your board
Install the compute module, attach the legs, and plug in your cables.
Step 2: Choose your Operating System
The Windows 64-bit Installer will install your drivers, update your firmware, and let you install your development environment (IDE).

Step 3: Set up a Serial Terminal
You'll need a serial terminal connection to your board for flashing the firmware.
Set up Terminal ›
Step 4: Connect your board to the Internet
To get going in the "I" of IoT, connect your board to your Wi-Fi* network.
Set up Wi-Fi ›
Step 6: Try it out!
Your very first project is to blink the LED on the board. This ensures that all your software, network connectivity, and firmware images are up to date and correct, and that your board is communicating with your computer.

Step 7: Get sensors
Without sensors you can't take advantage of the power and creativity available to you with the IoT platform. Depending on your project, you'll need at least one sensor, maybe more.
If you are using our Intel® IoT Developer Kit, follow the instructions in our next steps section. Otherwise, visit the site of your sensor manufacturer for sample Arduino code.
