Windows 10 (KVM) on PinePhone
#1
It's about time.

Just keep in mind that this is a PoC about native virtualization on AW A64, Windows 10 ARM on A64 is not really usable as you thought, no networking, keyboard/mouse get borked most of the time when you do something, frequent BSODs because watchdog keeps timeout and very slow.

The way how this is being done is the same as Pinebook Pro, but you have to skip OOBE using audit mode (Shift+Ctrl+F3 when it fails to update).

But better yet, just replace the ISO Windows with a Linux distro, it makes your life easier, and it's also faster too.

I doubt it's a good thing. Big Grin
anyways, what did you mean? running a linux distro on a virtual machine on a phone would be faster, than doing the same with Windows? what exactly timings you have compared? have you at all? any tables with numbers? or it's just a farting in a puddle?

PS. what is more wasteful, than virtualization? virtualization run on the phone, that barely stands on its feet tryng to handle a zoo of linux distributions halfassedly ported from desktop to mobile.

I'm guessing some kernel options need to be enabled since mini xp freezes up at the desktop and win10 is stuck on loading screen for me.

Rather than reflashing sd cards or using multi boot images, would it be possible/practical to run the different pinephone linux distros via qemu at usable speeds?

Eh, this is qemu running arm64 virtualization, not x86 emulation. So x86 OSes doesn't simply work like that, the Windows 10 I'm using is for ARM64 systems.

Oops, my question didn't make sense - I was probably thinking of containers not virtualisation, eg this.
