Raspberry Pi 4 has a significant improvement in hardware performance over older models, and even the ability to install the Windows 10 IoT Core operating system. In 2019, a group of independent developers is working on a project to bring Windows 10 to devices that Microsoft itself may have abandoned. Previously, Windows 10 had been ported to Lumia phones by developers, and Dutch developers had introduced Windows 10 to Raspberry Pi 3.

Previously ARM transplanters were limited to Raspberry Pi 3, but now this work has been extended to the Raspberry Pi 4 model.
With WoA Deployer, this deployment tool basically allows developers to port Windows 10 ARM to any supported hardware.
According to developer Marcin, you can now run ARM Build 17134 (updated April 2018) on Windows 10 in Model B’s Raspberry Pi 4.
Given that Raspberry Pi 4’s performance is significantly better than Raspberry Pi 3’s, developers believe that Windows 10’s performance has also improved significantly.
Simply set up the truncatememory 0x4000000 0x4000000 with the help of the bcdedit technology and remove the lan7800, lan9500, SerPL011, and bcmauxspi drivers.
I installed 17134 on the USB drive, so I was able to complete the OOBE on Raspberry Pi 3 and then use the USB drive for rpi4 boot.
The Raspberry Pi 4 uses a 28nm Broadcom BCM271B0 chip with four 1.5GHz Cortex A72 cores and 15 command line depths, while Raspberry Pi 3B plus has only eight.
It’s not clear whether the project will work perfectly on Raspberry Pi 4, or whether it may be slow to open some applications.
After all, Windows 10 on ARM can be x86 simulation, so you’ll be able to run desktop applications, but it’ll be very slow.
Given that The WoA of Raspberry Pi 4 is still being explored and the installation process is complex, it is clear that the average person will not try it easily.
Interested friends need WoA Deployer, Raspberry Pi 4, USB drive, and Windows 10 ARM64 images.
