So i've gotten pretty close to getting windows 10 arm to boot. But for some reason after selecting the boot device it wont no longer detect the keyboard, when the press any key to continue prompt arrives. The numlock light will turn on but no matter what button i press nothing happens. Also since it doesnt detect a keyboard input it will go back to the last screen and the system seems to lock up at that point.

I've also tried two different keyboards both seem to not have an effect.

Do me a favor and repeat your experiment with the input being done over the serial input instead of USB. I bet you’ll discover similar behavior.

Actually, please send me a serial log of your experiments produced by a debug build of the UEFI firmware. That should help immensly.

I’ve seen something similar with winload.efi - it draws the pretty “uh-oh” blue screen, but the keys to reboot or exit to firmware don’t work - almost as if the code is waiting for a debugger or if interrupts are disabled. With a debug edk2 build I saw periodic UEFI messages stop printing as well.

You can try applying the wim file manually,make two partitions on your sdcard or USB,one FAT and one NTFS,then use dism to apply the image and bcdboot to create boot files.

AFAIK,using the latest firmware Windows still hang at the boot screen,there seems no sign of loading and no 0xc0000225

Sadly i don't have a serial cable to hook up to the pi, tho im not too sure how to communicate with it that way my guess is a serial to usb and putty on my pc. I've seen people posting images of the 0xc0000225 blue screen and i have no idea how they are even getting that far.

Folks, I've updated the readme.md file with the steps required to build arm64 WinPE USB media. You should be able to follow them provided you have a Windows 10 machine (any will do, x86, amd64 or arm64).

Also, see https://github.com/andreiw/RaspberryPiPkg/tree/master/Binary/prebuilt/2018Apr21-GCC49, which should make it more obvious what is happening. See screenshot. You should be able to repeat my "success" (for lack of a better term, given that we're crashing somewhere in NT after UEFI exits).

Since the current version (Apr 21st) and latest WoA WinPE bits seem to act much more reasonably than this ticket implies, I'm closing it as resolved.

Guys, take a look at https://github.com/andreiw/RaspberryPiPkg/tree/master/Binary/prebuilt/2018Apr22-GCC49 and the latest notes in readme.md. Everything you need to repeat is in there.

I can get WinPE booting. If it wasn't for https://twitter.com/ntauthority 's helpful hint, wouldn't be anywhere close.

I'll see if I can make any progress on SMP.

It would be nice to figure out where the MCCI (https://twitter.com/NTAuthority/status/957886027594641409) USB driver for DWC_OTC can be found.

The rest of the RPi3 drivers are open source and could be hypothetically build with the EWDK (https://github.com/ms-iot/bsp/tree/master/drivers) - untried, but it seems like @NTAUTHORITY built some.

wow That's amazing!
Is it possible to use PSCI to get SMP?WOA needs either mppp or psci to get multicore.
According to https://zhuanlan.zhihu.com/p/34572676
Windows has built in support for BCM interrupts,and what's the problem that prevents windows from starting up?

@andreiw

@andreiw andreiw commented Apr 22, 2018

This firmware already exposes PSCI support (go boot Linux and see ;-)), but the ACPI tables are as-is from MS-IoT and thus still report MPPP and no PSCI in FADT.

@thchi12 thchi12 commented Apr 22, 2018

In the earlier versions there were acpi tables for psci ,I wonder whether adding only dsdt ,csrt,dbg2 could help or not.

As far as RPi3 support there appears to be a check in Hal validating PIC is not a BCM PIC. That’s why you need a debugger attached to patch out the ‘bls’ following the subtraction and compare.

You need a 64-bit driver. IoT core is 32-bit. Hypothetically, if I understood @NTAUTHORITY correctly, the driver might have shipped as part of the NT-based 64-bit Wndows Mobile. I don’t know much about the later, in terms of which version first had AArch64 support (8.1 or 10...).

@Andrew752 Andrew752 commented Jul 10, 2019

I knew but i prefer the built-in components and i think there is only 1 port available in my Pi so using the built-in components will make more USB ports available to use (maybe in adding more storage) [i'm using 1 for mouse and 1 for keyboard and 1 for more storage [external sd card storage]] that make only one USB port left. [sry for my Eng.]

Have you tried a keyboard/mouse combo? That's what I use and it works great and would free up a USB port for you... Just a thought.

@Andrew752 Andrew752 commented Jul 11, 2019

I may not tried that but it's not a solution my main point is just to use the built-in components so you will be using all the Raspberry power and abilities. I'm just waiting for the developers while clapping for them for all that great effort which they giving us it for free.

I totally agree, that they deserve a ton of credit. I'm hoping that they'll be able to eventually get Windows 10 working on the new RP4 someday.... 😊

Sorry dude, but there’s nothing more to add on top of what either I or Pete already said.

  • The only meaningful way to do add Pi 4 support must be done working upstream with the Tiano community.
  • The work itself is pretty well identified - most of it is dull and boring - and even a PoC has been done to show the viability of the approach.
  • The quickest way to get there involves financing someone - someone who wants to somit and is skilled and not busy - to do it for 4-6m. I can think of a few companies that would be a good fit for the financing part.
  • No one has solved that last bit yet and I’m a little busy myself. Also, I don’t think waiting for a year while I spend my weekends on the Pi 4 is actually a good deal for anyone.

...nothing more to add at the moment.

It has been a while since I looked at this project. Would someone be kind enough to give me a step by step tutorial on installing Windows 10 on Raspberry. I have seen some changes like some new UEFI firmware or images or things like that, so I don't know what to do. Most tutorials are outdated, so I would appreciate a tutorial.

Folks I'm going to lock this thread down. I wouldn't be surprised if it is the longest thread ever on Github.

It's been a good run but:

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Not going to close it but lock it.
