[FANTASY] is possible ReactOS on x86_64 smartphones?

Post by Julcar » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:03 am

some days ago I got curiosity about the Intel processors for smartphones and tablets, well I found this baby:

it uses an intel x86_64 processor, which of course, requires an android x86 version to run, I was wondering (and dreaming) about if is possible, maybe in the far far future, a phone where anyone could install ReactOS, without the needing of porting it to ARM arch (something that seems more difficult these days)

Why not?
If ReactOS learns to fly in next 5 years then "Canonical Ltd" might find it interesting.
Who knows SteamOS based on ReactOS!
Maybe we will form Julcar Industries.
There is EXCEED INDUSTRIES already.
An alliance of these and another guy who wants to make a fortune selling ReactOS compatibles.
Wow! ;)
ReactOS has 90% market share.
Gentlemen, I say it's possible.
What I don't know is how long it would take. 8-)

I think this would require UEFI bootloader.

In the far future? You need to be more specific. Is that after the apocalypse or before?

You should really put this question to the Supreme Council or the High Council of Time Lords that which was/is/will be the governing body of the Time Lords on Gallifrey, this is the ReactOS forum and we can only deal with the present, potential near future or near past.

At that time ^^

Hopefully not at that one though:

Anyways... I wondered about the same in the past if you can install Windows on a x86/amd64 mobile. Short answer: NOPE, long answer: If you make your own EFI or Legacy supportive loader to get it to boot... YES.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Are you aware that Android on x86 also boots using UEFI? These devices are viable targets for ReactOS mobile too.
-uses Ubuntu+GNOME 3 GNU/Linux
-likes Free (as in freedom) and Open Source Detergents
-favors open source of Windows 10 under GPL2

Are you aware that noone uses the Andoird PC port on mobile devices?! Asus and the others with x86_64 arch devices use their own ways which are NOT UEFI supportive
