Thanks to the simulator and VHD image released earlier this week, someone shared a tutorial on installing Windows 10X on a variety of real-world hardware on the web. In addition to Surface Go and a group of vendors’ laptops, Microsoft’s Windows 10X operating system, developed specifically for Surface Neo dual-screen mobile devices, was successfully ported to Apple MacBook.

For interested friends, check out the tutorial published on OSG.wiki, “Installing Windows 10X” on real hardware.
@imbusshuo shared a short video on Twitter of running Windows 10X on MacBook 9.1

The developer also took a screenshot of the information on the MacBook running Windows 10X (internal preview, compiled version number 19563.1000).
Despite Microsoft’s claim that Windows 10X was built for dual-screen folding devices, another developer, @stroughtonsmith, managed to port it to the Surface 10X.
The Surface Go for testing has only 120GB of hard drive space, and he’s lazy at first to see if it’s feasible to pour the mirror directly in.
The results were so pleasing that Surface Go was successfully swiped into the Windows 10X operating system. While touch and Wi-Fi drivers don’t install by default, they’re already pretty impressive.
Finally, @stroughtonsmith summarizes some of the tips for Surface Go to install the Windows 10X operating system, such as the need to inject your own drive for displays, wireless networks, and touchpads, and still have some requirements for hands-on capabilities.
