This thread is not the focal point for all discussions relating to running Win7, Win8 or WinAnything on the Tab 10.1.

It has been formed by merging some of the largest and oldest Windows-on-Tab threads into one.

Windows 7 or Windows 8 on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?
Hello

Is it possible to install Windows 7 or Windows 8 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?

Thank you in advance.

Windows 7 doesn't work on the processor inside the tab. Windows 8 will but that version hasn't been released. Only the intel version has.

Would love Windows 8 on my tab.

Watch this space, I guess...

For starters....it isn't an Intel chip in the 10.1. Its the NVIDIA Tegra 2.

Errr... nVidia is most certainly NOT Intel!

No back to the thread - why on earth would you want to put Windows, aka bloatware, on an Android Tab?
