Windows 10 ARM has been available for laptops with Qualcomm commercially SoC for some time, although it is gradually becoming available in more devices and today we echo the curious option of installing it in a Raspberry Pi 3. A simple process thanks to the application that SuperJMN has developed on Github.
Keep in mind that Windows 10 ARM is compatible only with Raspberry Pi 3 B or B+ models and the operating system is loaded by means of a microSD card prepared with an ISO image that we have to compile ourselves. The boot process is extremely slow and can take up to 40 minutes, something that must be repeated at each restart. As we can see in the proof-of-concept video, we can execute programs such as Office and the pre-installed apps thanks to the x86 emulation, but little else.
- Raspberry Pi 3 Model B (or B +)
- Fast MicroSD card, minimum type A1 is recommended.
- Windows 10 PC updated with .NET Framework 4.6.1 installed
- Image Windows 10 ARM64 (.wim). To create it you have to follow this manual.
