Users are installing Windows 11 on Raspberry Pi #RaspberryPi #Windows11 (Updated)
In the last day, the interwebs are filling up with reports and videos of users installing Windows 11 preview builds on various non-PC hardware. This is a bit ironic in that the hardware requirements for PCs are quite high – a very modern processor with a trusted platform module (TPM).
Since Microsoft has released an official ARM64 build of Windows 11, it’s not too surprising to see it get ported to the Raspberry Pi 4 or the old Microsoft Lumia 950 XL phone. It’s cool to see users jumping through the hoops to actually make it work.
The non-detailed instructions for doing this are (untested):
How to install Windows 11 to Raspberry Pi 4: do everything the way you would if you were setting up Windows 10 on ARM, but use the Windows 11 ARM64 image instead.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
