Run Windows on Android

Yes, you can run Windows on Android. It’s quite easy and simple to do it. Here’s how to run Windows on Android.

Before anything, I will mention that running a desktop OS on your phone will be very slow, it mostly depends on the read/write speed on your SD card(or wherever you put the VHD). Yes, it also depends on your CPU and RAM, but the memory read/write speed is essential. I wouldn’t recommend running any OS higher than Windows XP. For this, I will be demonstrating how to run Windows 95.

Anyways, to run Windows on Android, you need the following:

1. A VHD(Virtual Hard Disk) of your OS. You can either download it, or make your own. Qcow2 and IMG will also work.

2. Limbo PC Emulator. Just to make thing straight, Limbo is not meant for Desktop OS, as I said before, because the read/write speed of your memory. But it will do the job and it will not do any harm. You can get Limbo PC Emulator here(If you have any problems with the link, you can get the .apk here and install it manually).

And that’s it. When you install Windows 95 on a VHD, just copy it to your phone, load it up through Limbo. Check your settings. Make sure you have set the Sound Card Configuration to “all” , that is, if you want to have sound. Select the amount of RAM, CPU model and the number of cores. If your emulation is a bit slow, select “High Priority”. It will speed thing up, but if you, say, get a phone call during the emulation, things will get a bit slow… Also, set the User Interface to SDL. Once you have set your setting, hit START! Click the settings button. You will find a lot of settings. First of all, enable the mouse. You can also enable an external mouse (Bluetooth). Also, you can stretch the screen, ctrl-alt-del, use the keyboard… And a lot of other stuff. Once you entered the OS, all of the features of the OS are available. Honestly, there is not a really reason to do this, other than bragging and showing of to your friends. I have managed to install Office ’97 on Windows 95, and it really works on my phone. A bit slow, but it does work. In the OS, tap to click, double tap to double-click, tap + hold to drag-and-drop, tap with both fingers to right-click. Enjoy a Desktop OS on your Android device.
