Windows 10 IoT
Is it possible to install Windows 10 IoT core on the omega?
I know the processor is powerful enough but Win10 says it needs 256mb of RAM and 2GB of storage, so is it possible to expand the doc to support this?
to put it simple: no.
@Anthony-Sadarangani Try expanding the storage by using USB storage. Check out Boken's tutorial on using pivot-overlay. I expanded my rootfs to 8GB by following his tutorial.
1: that filesystem expanding is for openwrt itself (i think)
2: the ram the omega has is way below the requirements of windows 10 iot.
that's why i'm so sure it won't be happening.
@ramon-schepers Oops! You're right, ramon! Maybe there's another way to do it with Win 10?
then the RAM problem still exists i guess
also, maybe offtopic:
well, to be honest, i miss the good old days when windows needed 4mb of RAM, and 50MB hdd space (windows 95 era)
nowadays i am against inefficient resource usage (like max os x and windows 8.1/10 have)
i don't say i hate it though, but i don't support it
Thanks for the responses guys. I'm looking around to see if there's into a lighter weight binary of Win10 but may be out of luck..
@ramon-schepers I guess I could just run Win 95 instead :P
