I am working on a project for my company and we are looking to utilize low end boards (embedded boards) to produce a lower end product of our NVR & DVR (networked video recorder or digital video recorder). I have found info on what processors support which OS types. Am I correct in thinking that if a specific processor (e.g. Intel Atom) supports Windows Embedded Compact 2013 and I find a board that supports the Intel Atom processors (e.g. Intel EDI2ARDUIN.AL.K Dual Core IA-32 @ 500 MHz, 32-bit Intel Atom Processor Z34xx Series @ 100 MHz Board with 70-pin connector Motherboard/CPU Combo ) would the motherboard also support the same specific OS that the processor supports, since the motherboard should be supporting the same chipset series due to the processor??
Or is there more info on which motherboards support which specific OS?
The board you're referring to is part of Intel IoT lineup, and is a "play with" board for Intel Edison, compatible with Arduino.. The fact that there is WEC support for Intel Atom does not mean that the particular board is supported (and most probably, is not).
I would say this particular board is not the best choice for any end-user product.
Thank you for contacting the Intel Embedded Community.

Please let us know if this information is useful to you.
but if the board supports the architecture of the processor and the processor supports that specific version of Windows, wouldn't the board have to be capable of running the versions of Windows that the processor supports?
Thanks for your reply.
