    QEMU is such a great and solid virtualization platform. In theory, based on what you have done here (emulating x86 to run in ARM) you could even run Win10 in a Raspberry Pi 4.

    Installed windows 10 no problem but the internet driver was another matter. I couldn’t get the .iso driver into ACVM. You seemed to drop it into the CD option and it appeared on your D drive? I only have a C drive inside windows. I’d really like to get internet access. I did all the command line changes but I can’t get the drivers to install via the ACVM and they’re not showing on the windows 10 file system.

    Why is this called Microsoft's decision? I am pretty sure if Apple preinstalled Windows on the M1 computers and met Microsoft's technical standards Microsoft would sell Apple a license. Why not blame Apple? Lousy Bluetooth, audio, keyboard, graphics, T2, trackpad and touch-bar support in Bootcamp are because of Apple supplied drivers despite years of user complaints. Apple even disables some hardware if booting into a non-MacOS operating system. No wonder things don't work properly! Perhaps Microsoft wants to avoid what has historically been poor Apple support. Microsoft is treating Apple the same as any other maker of ARM based computers. Dell, HP, Lenovo, Asus all have to preinstall Windows on ARM and meet technical specifications. I see no reason why Apple should get special treatment.

  • Mel Gross

    Well, it’s possible that for some reason, your setup IS just using one core, and not just in the the test. I haven’t seen that anywhere else. Windows on ARM runs 32 bit x86 apps in VERY slow emulation.
