Hi Mark

I doubt this will be as simple as just installing Windows CE on to an SD
card. More likely, it requires the manufacturer's firmware written to
the SD card, which includes the necessary version of Windows CE as part
of the firmware image. The manufacturers website is probably the place
to look.
