First thing I thought would be great to do with H2 is to finally run Windows on it for the only windows program I have and forget VirtualBox as a nightmare. Unfortunately I've found out that Windows 10 is no way want to be installed on eMMC as it doesn't recognize it as a hard drive.
Digging the internet I've found out that there is actually a way to have Windows 10 running on USB drive or memory stick as a hard drive, but a specific process is required. It's called "Windows To Go", and a stick can be imaged from Windows ISO making it a hard drive with Windows so you can run it right from it.
Here is the magnet link to the image, it's a standard "dd" image of 16G eMMC, you should write it to your eMMC the usual way as any other Odroid img, just don't forget to un-gzip it.
Code: Select all
- There is no hacking involved, meaning the image of windows is raw .iso downloaded from microsoft download section by my distant friend himself,
- That would imply it's Evaluation copy that is going to expire in 90 days if not activated, there is no activation tampering involved in the image, it's on you how you use it,
- That would also mean the image is in "initial" state, so it will setup, do few reboots and hourglass spins, accounting questions and usual windows stuff,
- Which also implies it highly depends on speed of your eMMC, but sometimes I was thinking it's really dead, while it was doing some steps.
