Windows 10 ARM64 on R-Pi 3

Mon Oct 01, 2018 7:35 am

Hello,
I was wondering if it was possible to install the official Microsoft Windows 10 RS5 ARM64 ISO on an SD card and have it work on an R-Pi3......Keep in mind that this is NOT the IoT version that has been compiled for the Pi. The iso is approx. 4 Gb in size.

Windows 10 ARM is compiled to run on a Qualcomm SoC which is completely different hardware to the Raspberry Pi SBC.

If I were to find a Raspberry Pi clone that has a Qualcomm chip, would it work???

There are no Pi clones.

There are lookalikes, but that's about it.

You would have to ask that question on the support forum for what ever board you choose to find, because a board with a Qualcomm chip is by definition NOT a Raspberry Pi.

1. There has only ever been one Pi clone...and it didn't last long.
2. Even if you found another board using a Snapdragon SoC and was otherwise similar to a Pi, it wouldn't be a "Pi clone".

It's not that it is (intrinsically) that difficult to duplicate the Pi. It's just that you need to order enough SoCs from Broadcom for them to be willing to sell them to you. Back in the day, that was expressed as "How many hundreds of thousands do you want per quarter?" So if you have several million dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you can spend it developing a Pi clone if you're mind to. For considerably less, you could investigate the Element 14 Custom Pi program. You could get into that for more like $100K or so. In any case, you still won't be using a Snapdragon SoC and the ARM64 Win 10 still won't be likely to run on your "Pi clone".

I was referring to the Raspberry Pi form factor......Are there ANY boards that are Snapdragon based out there????

You'll have to ask that question in another forum. This one is for Raspberry Pi only, not similar looking boards.

Not as far as i know. Most form factor clones use Allwinner or other Chinese chip sets.
Nvidia used to do some sbc using their Tegra chips, but I haven't seen much of them. There are also various Amlogic boards out there.

Qualcomm go for the huge volume phone/tablet form factors, not small volume reference designs. Just the main soc from qualcomm can be more than $30 in large volumes - it's a very different price point.

The nearest you will likely find is the Snapdragon 820 SBC which "may" run Windows 10 Mobile at $289.00, it has the same SoC as a Lumia Phone:
