    windows rt on asus slider?

    Hello forum! I've been gone for a while due to me immersing myself completely in my career. I work 50-60+ hours a week now. And also, about a year ago I got rid of all my android devices and have migrated completely to windows.

    Long story short, an asus slider that I gave to someone as a gift a few years ago has circled back and landed in my hands. Does anyone know if there's been any effort to install windows rt on this thing?

    I doubt there's been much in the way of effort put into this - isn't the basic problem that the Tegra processors don't have the right instruction set to run Windows as it is currently written?

    Maybe, if someone had the source code (unlikely) and was able to modify it for a Tegra chipset/Slider BIOs and recompile it .......

    Both the MS Surface and Surface 2 run on Tegra 3 and Tegra 4 SoCs! Along with many of the early RT models from Asus, etc also using the Tegra 3... So it's not that it's a Tegra that is the issue...

    The actual issue is RT is too locked down and the minimum requirements aren't met by the Tegra 2 in the older SL101 Slider, which came with only 1GB of RAM and either 16-32GB eMMC... The minimum requirements, at least before the latest update, for RT was 2GB of RAM and 32GB eMMC...

    It doesn't help that RT hasn't been very popular and thus few people bothered to even try... also, the system has to support UEFI, as unlike on x86 PC's the Secure Boot is required to be enabled with RT...

    Besides, a old Tegra 2 is weaker than even the old ATOMs used in netbooks and would not be able to run RT very well...

    Ok, thanks for the clarification - it's been a while since I've seen any discussion on this subject, and I just had a vague recollection it was something to do with the hardware of the original Transformer devices that made it a non-starter.
