Windows 10 Support

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Is there planned support for Windows 10 on the Nanopi M4?

Windows 10 has now been successfully ported to Raspberry Pi, but is practically unusable due to the underpowered processor, plus the lack of support for USB3. The RK3399 would be a much better candidate for this.

Thank you.
- win10 on RPi is not a typical desktop\arm64 windows 10 with GUI
- only Microsoft can grant such support, so it's a wrong place to ask ;)

since (?) a week ther is a solution for GUI - but VERY slow on the Raspberry - but not on a NanoPi:

I think that is what the Thread-Owner mean :)

wow, thanks! didn't see this article ;) arm64 on RPi :)))

I am almost sure, that Win10/arm64 have build-in drivers for Arm Mali 2/3D, but some other stuff, like Rockchip ISP (which not work correctly even under Linux on NanoPi M4/T4 in dual cam mode) will not work under Windows too ;)
They've been able to run Windows 10 for about 6 months on the RPi. Now there's a easy installer for it.

If the community is big enough to make it run on RK3399, then it could be possible. But I don't think FriendlyElec would ever do this.
That it runs on the Raspberry is something tottaly different to running it on another SBC. They've written drivers for the Raspberry pi, and the Raspberry pi is quite a different board compared to other SBC's.
There went a lot of work into doing this. I do not think FriendlyElec could do something like that themselfs.

Microsoft could/should bring out Windows for arm64. I don't understand why they haven't done it yet. They sell their OS and make huge profits. There are so many arm devices right now that Microsoft is missing out on. There must be something wrong there not wanting to go all in on that.

But I do not need it at all. I like my Linux on my SBC's the way it is. And if Windows would run on cheap sbc's, then there wouldn't be much use for x86 anymore.
