Question on Installing an OS (e.g. Windows, Mac, etc.) to a Tablet

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've seen people use Windows 8 on a tablets. How is this done and can it be done with any tablet?

How about the new Amazon Fire that coming out?

You mean the Kindle Fire right?

It isn't out yet so nobody knows. I bet that XDA will find a way to get Honeycomb on there though.

So which tablets are x86? All of them except the iPad?

Also how is it done with the lack of the ODD and all?

If i am not mistaken there really isnt any tablets that youd want to put windows 8 or any os on for that matter that support windows 8 yet.

you'd be more interest in a slate pc or a "tablet" pc, than a tablet.

x86 is an instruction set. Most tablets use CPUs that utilize the ARM instruction set.

The only x86 CPUs are made by Intel, AMD, and VIA. Only Intel is attempting to enter the modern tablet market.

You don't need an ODD to install an OS.... see your phone, router, cable box, etc.
Once again...

Awww, thanks for the links, but those are all not in the price range I want. I am really looking forward to the Kindle Fire because of it's $199 price tag...
