It’s a Saturday, but still there were a few articles out today.

On the Inside, by Murray Wall

This was a generally favorable review, despite some glitches due to using an old installer. Folks, be sure to get the latest WoA installer for best results. I’ll repeat the badge here:   GitHub release

Tom’s Hardware, by Avram Pitch

This post was not favorable, but hey, it inspired Murray’s download. From the description, it looked as if he was so quick off the draw that he ended up struggling with old and mismatched drivers. He also might not have found the secret method of updating the clock rate. Bless him anyway for checking us out.


This article in Spanish is (according to my high-school Spanish) generaly favorable.

How-to: Installing Windows 10 ARM64 (WOA) on your Raspberry Pi 3

Currently, there are 2 tools that will help you with this task.

WOA Deployer for Raspberry Pi 

This tool has been designed with simplicity in mind. It just works®

Recommended if you don’t want to worry about drivers, UEFI and other advanced options. It will do everything for you. You just only have to select the driver where you SD Card is located, select the .wim file of your Windows Image and click Deploy. Nothing more. Simple, isn’t it?

Windows on Raspberry imager

This tool offers different configuration options, it’s multi-language and allows you to customize the deployment, selecting drivers, and UEFI, and it allows to use .iso files directly. Recommended for advanced users.

There’s a logo… and a discourse site

We now have a Discourse-based discussion site, It turns out that discourse’s design really strongly encourages you to have logos and various graphic elements. So, we have one:

The logo…

It’s an obvious design — a combination of the Windows 8 window-pane logo and the Pi color, and a bit of rounding of the edges. The font for the logotype, following that idea, is “All Round Gothic”. Let us know what you think. The other volunteers are not responsible for this, and haven’t even had a chance to review, so … it might change. (People with actual design skills are welcome to offer improvements.)

And.. I started a topic at to cover the progress on the USB drivers:

Hello world!

Welcome to, the blog and software distribution site for drivers for Windows 10 ARM64 on the Raspberry Pi. We’ll be posting drivers here that are not part of the commercial distribution from Microsoft, notably MCCI‘s DWCOTGHCD.SYS USB drivers, instructions for getting started, and more.

Who we are

This site is the effort of a group of volunteers (masthead) who have donated time to produce the software and information you find here. MCCI Corporation is providing hosting for the site in order to provide a central place to find things, but MCCI is otherwise not involved with or responsible for this site.
