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 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...

Jesper.

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?

I wouldnt want windows 8 on my tablet...but I can see why some people might be interested.

nvidia is not intel though. they may licence some technologies from each other, but they aren't one and the same. If they were. then why would intel be bothering with the medfield chips?
