Member. I finally figured out that you can install Windows 10 on your Surface RT, great so far! Too bad Microsoft hasn’t officially updated my tablet and this version of this process is so outdated that many other fancy apps don’t work, but it’s more than nothing!
Mainstream support for Windows RT (8.0) ended in January. Users must upgrade Windows to RT 8.1 to continue receiving. Mainstream support for Windows RT 8.1 ended in January, and extended support for Windows RT 8.1 ends in the January update.
Current hardware support: type/touch cover, display (touch), USB, SD card, eMMC, HDMI, buttons (Vol+/-, PWR, Windows), (UART-A), WiFi, audio.
Any ARM32 distribution will do.
Booting from Linux UEFI is possible.
Some new Surface devices already have Windows 11 installed. Various Surface devices can be upgraded to Windows 11 using Windows 10.
Microsoft disabled our Surface RT and Surface 2 just 3 years ago and threw everything away. For now, there are only alerts for updates coming in 2023. Windows 10 will never be. At 32 GB, although it is effective, it still cannot be installed.
Among these products, only 13 models support Windows 16. Because, like most Microsoft Surface Pro tablets, they are not eligible due to Windows 11 updates. Even if someone has a Surface Hub or Surface Studio, you cannot install Windows 12 on a computer. Simply put, Surface devices released before 2017 don’t back up Windows 11 updates.
Get the most out of Surface and other Windows RT devices. Install Linux or Windows 10 on ARM32. It is possible to boot Linux from UEFI. You can boot Linux using connected exploit (higher performance) also known as UEFI. You can use Raspberry OS Private Detective Desktop, postmarketOS or any other ARM32/ARMHF distribution.
