Hello,

It's posibble to install Windows [preferably Windows 8.1. FULL] on an Android Tablet from Samsung [Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition]? Even dual-boot with Android and Windows 8.1. . I don't know if this is can do, but deserved to ask.

Sry for my bad English.

I think there's only Windows RT (8 and 8.1) that can run on ARM powered devices. For a full Windows 8.1 you'd need a x86 or x64 device, so forget Samsung. It's been some time now that Intel produce x86 powered Android devices but I don't know if you can make a platform that would work for both OS.

Windows 8 and 8.1 only run on x86 or amd64 processors, not arm. And windows rt, which does run on arm, only runs with a microsoft signed, locked bootloader. If a device doesn't come with windows rt it won't be able to run it.

So the solution would be to be able to unlock a winrt tab and install a android os on it.

or get a windows 8 tablet and install android x86 on it, as unlocking a tablet with windows rt seems like it would be really hard...though from a google search it does seem possible to jailbreak a surface rt, I just don't know how well it would dual boot.
