    I want to put Windows OS On this Andriod RCA Tablet Safely, Help?


    Yeah I don't know much about OS installing on Tablet Hardware, but If anyone could help implementing a windows OS safely, and Not do any of that installs that are Linux based, because I'm trying to work with small Exe files, and I would like to actually have a use for this small thing for once.
    Good news is this actually has a USB 2.0 port, so booting it from a thumb drive is actually possible. Can't say I know much more than that, I had Google searched before, and one article noted a big drop in performance from their device and their touch screen being completely disabled, so I figured I'd ask here, so I don't care if I replace this OS with windows 8.1, so long as I can give it a windows based OS without a drop in performance speed I'd be grateful, thanks.

    Many devices that run Android don't have CPUs that are supported by Windows but some might. But we don't know what that tablet has in the way of hardware in it. You mentioned Windows 8.1 so maybe someone over at Windows 8 Forums can help.

    Hi there, SotoPrior. Welcome to TenForums.

    Please post what the device is and as much as you know about the CPU.

    As others have said, more info is needed about the tablet itself. However, I personally doubt this Android tablet can run Windows since the Android OS is specifically made for ARM cpus while Windows is specifically directed at x86 cpus. Completely different architecture. The OSes are not interchangeable in that regard.

    99% chance that RCA Android tablet will not be able to run Windows at all. First thing is you would have to be able to boot into some kind of BIOS or UEFI in order to boot from a Windows USB flash drive and that tablet will likely boot into the Android boot loader/recovery firmware which will be impossible to load a Windows USB flash drive from.

    For less than $200, I bought a Nextbook Flexx Windows tablet from WalMart and it is great for the price, IMHO.

    Whelp according to the Boot up, it did mention something about a Viking Pro, at the start.

    Model Number is RCT6303W87DK

    Build Number is RCT6303W87DK-ANDROID 5.0-V63-V1.12.20-B

    I'm looking at the system Information about the tablet, so bear with me.

    Actually I just found a site which should show the full specs from Googling the Build Number:

    http://specdevice.com/showspec.php?i...3-c5870033c587

    Aside from that, I really don't care if it is Windows 98 that actually works, I'm just trying to utilize what I have.

    Oh I appreciate the suggestion, I was just throwing out cards to see whatever would work for android better that Microsoft had to offer, based on some article I read before posting here. Personally I don't care what is compatible with it, so long as I can actually get a Windows OS onto it. I appreciate the thought, but I'm truly not hard on to anything so far. Thanks.

    Hey thanks for the Suggestion. Really I am actually going to invest in a laptop later today, I'm trying to actually put some windows based OS because originally, I bought this little tablet here for 80$ refurbished to get some work done on it, but aside from the little free Microsoft Office app that they supported on the Google play store, I'll be frank, I haven't had much use for the thing, being it just collecting dust, and I was wishing to make something off it than a little kid's play thing (if you get what I mean,) and Actually make some use out of it. By all means I appreciate the suggestion for a different tablet, but the thing is, (at least as of this post) my finances are more projected in a different area right now, and either way, I unfortunately can't poof away the device and magically have the windows one. Don't get me wrong, it is just not in my best interests right now is all that I'm trying to say. I just want to say thank you for taking the time either way to read my qualms and reply thank you.

    Thanks for the info. Windows RT may run on it. I'll have to do more research on it, though. I'll be back....

    I found this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...windows-rt-faq

    Unfortunately even if it did run on it, all Windows RT OSs came preinstalled. No way to buy it outright that I can see.

    As others have mentioned the best advice is to try and sell it, then use the money towards a Windows device.
