Is there any ARM emulator for Windows which is able to run this?
Is anywhere link to W8-0 b9200 RT too?
moderate, this cannot be ran in x86-64 even inside virtualization. ARM is RISC architecture, and is a very limited x86. So it cannot be run in V86 mode, because x86 CPU is not intended for this. Now to those users who will come here to say that hey we can VMWare x64 OSes under x86 using hardware VT-x: Sorry to disappoint you, but this is possible just because the x64/amd64 architecture is an extension to classic x86. With other architectures like ARM and IA-64 only that architecture CPUs can be used.
It should be possible using full emulation. You can even run PS2 or Wii games using it. However, performance would suffer terribly of course. The question is, is there any emulator that can do ARM or not?
Im wondering if it could be ported to other ARM devices, I have an Android tablet I wouldn't mind seeing RT running on
I guess you can, but you would need to integrate all the firmware/drivers, these simply don't exist for RT, you would need to create custom drivers
So, it is theoretically possible, but it will take a lot of work and if you do get it to run, it will be extremely unstable!
Yea that's what I was thinking too, plus there are not many developer sites that would allow any ports of Windows RT to be created for legal reasons
Guess I`ll have to save for a Surface
Well, I just finished Final Fantasy X game under PS2 emulator... Also I run frequently Amiga (RISC too) emulators etc. so it could be possible. Also I think that six-core twelve-threads i7 is powerful enough to handle emulating some simple pocket ARM device. But of course more likely the emulator for ARM doesn't exist yet. :/
Even if there is an ARM emulator out there somewhere, you still wouldn't get it to run because there aren't any drivers for the hardware it emulates, nor a HAL (ARM really needs a specialized HAL because the hardware implementations are, unlike x86/x64, very vendor-specific).
The only way I guess it would work is if you had an ARM emulator that emulates a specific ARM device, like the Surface RT, for example. That wouldn't make much sense to have except for development/simulation purposes - why should one run and use an ARM operating system emulated on x86/x64 hardware?
magnet not connecting and downloading. any help please?
did you remove the spaces? they are all working here.
Can someone just upload an updated proper working ISO for Surface RT ONLY?
better even, wait until somebody has a fully working 8.1 RT and makes a recovery disk that can be shared. Has been done for 8.0.
To be honest, I'm not quite sure why WZOR didn't just create a recovery drive for the Surface RT and then upload that, unless installing this way doesn't overwrite the recovery partition like the Store upgrade did for the preview.
Yes. I manually added trackers and now it's working now
Maybe because people want to fully Upgrade from their 8.0 installation, and not Refresh/Restore. Don't know. A new proper ISO already patched and ready for Surface RT ONLY would be the best thing for everyone, I'm really disappointed WZOR messed this so badly.
MS-7 wrote that it's because of security reasons. I trust him and it seems that this would give away some information of the source that created the recovery image I assume (hardware id or similar).
This release is a mess: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/48042-Important-Driver-integration-process-for-Windows-RT . Waiting for a new proper ISO updated for Surface RT ONLY
iPhones and iPads are some type of ARM processor, I believe. Would be interesting to see Windows on one of those.
Attempting a complete clean install now on my Surface. Using the original ISO copied to USB, and then inserting the drivers into the WIM files using the original driver zip posted with the ISO. Booted straight to the USB and deleted ALL of the partitions on the device before proceeding, it's at 70% right now, and I will report back later with progress.
Has anyone done a total clean install like this before? I'm probably being a little reckless, but whatever. #YOLO #SWAG
