Hi Everyone,

Recently I was using Hiren's Boot CD and I discovered the MiniXP feature which has now recently revived my laptop (thank god!) and the lightweight version of the OS got me thinking...

Would it be possible to install mini xp on a pi? I have already read instances of people extracting mini xp from the boot cd and making a stand-alone boot version (http://reboot.pro/topic/12138-can-i-extract-mini-xp-from-hirens-bootcd/), but I still want to see if it is possible to get it to work on a pi.

If the XP works, then maybe we could even come up with a way to use Windows 7/8 Embedded or equivalent!

Let me know what you think!

Most likely not, unless there is major major work done. The processor architecture of the Pi will not allow it to run anything designed for x86 type processors. If you really want a version of Windows to run on a raspi, you're best bet would be to try and get Windows CE running on it
