Hello everybody,

Is it possible to Install Windows 8 Developer Preview into PANDORA ? ( Windows 8 is for X86, X64 and ARM processor )

If I converted installation media stored on a USB flash.

Thanks in advance

Would be interesting, nobodym is preventing you from trying. But there will be a lot of stuff missing, like drivers and other specific stuff.

Win 8 on Pandora? :D
Not really I guess. I can imagine that under 1GHz and 2GB Ram Win 8 won't work at all. They have powerful tablets in mind and that also is more a wishful thinking of Microsoft IMHO. Windows is just to big and fat in every aspect, it's the Anti-Mobile OS. XD

LOL! Windows 8 on ARM Would need something like dualcore 1GHz and 1Go of RAM, i think. Then can't be done on Pandora

Very true. It even seems more likeley that Win Phone 7 runs on the Pandora than Win 8. :D

With a big enough swap it should work... slowly.
Still a fun experiment to try and a nice thing to show off :)
