No, this is not windows where the hardware doesn't matter.

You need a rom for your exact hardware.

For an android device u need firmware or ROM as u may call it, that's been customized to fit ur device. NO possibilities to install Windows Phone nor iOS due to hardware limitations and drivers not matching...
