If you are looking to install Windows 10 on your Raspberry Pi developer José Manuel Nieto has created a new application called WoA installer. To provide an easy way for those interested in exploring the full Windows 10 experience on the Raspberry Pi rather than being restricted to the cutdown version Windows 10 IoT Core.
The WoA installer has been specifically created to provide a quick and easy way to create a bootable Windows 10 on ARM image for Raspberry Pi mini PC enabling the installation of Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system. But before you rush off to install Windows 10 on your Raspberry Pi the Hot Hardware website explain a few things to remember.
“We must forewarn you that Windows 10 on ARM first launched on systems running Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 smartphone SoC. Early performance of convertibles running that chip left a lot to be desired. Second-generation devices use the more PC-centric Snapdragon 850, which helped improve the performance situation.” The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ mini PC is equipped with a 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core processor (Cortex-A53).
To get started exploring Windows 10 on mini PCs all you need to get started is a Raspberry Pi 3B/B+, a microSD card and an image of Windows 10 ARM64, then simply download the WoA Installer and the Core Package. “Please, notice the WoA Installer is only a tool with helps you with the deployment. WoA Installer needs a set of binaries, AKA the Core Package, to do its job. These binaries are not not mine and are bundled and offered just for convenience to make your life easier, since this tool is focused on simplicity.”
