White wins both. First position, wrong color corner, but white can take the opposition and prevent black from getting into the corner with Ke8

Second position, Nc6-d4(or e5)-f3 will protect the pawn. Once there, black can do nothing better than wait around until white brings the king into the game. If Kg4 attacking the N, then h4 and the N is poisoned.
