How to run Windows on Android device?

I have some extra phones and I want to do something fun with them. I have already tried to run Ubuntu on one of my phone (but it was glitchy and stopped showing GUI very soon). This time I want to try Windows, since I heard someone successfully did that but did not explain how. Can anyone help me? thx

It is very slow. I took me more than a day to install Windows XP on a galaxy note 8.

You can run Linux on them via Andronix. And the Linux OS is very fast since it doesn't have to be emulated unlike Windows.

Use React OS,which is an open source Windows based OS (I think it's based on Windows Server 2003 + WINE)

I tried Limbo x86, both on real machine and VMOS, but it just didn't work. Every time I opened it, it crashed immediately

It depends on the settings and the OS you boot,

The settings i use:

 

Architecture: x64

Machine Type: pc

CPU Model: Default

CPU Cores: 4

RAM Memory: 840

Storage: None

Removable storage: CDROM

VGA Display: vmware

Sound Card: AC97

Network: User

Network Card: pcnet

DNS Server: 8.8.8.8

Operating system ISO i use:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/reactos/files/ReactOS/0.4.13/ReactOS-0.4.13-release-14-g2494cfc-iso.zip/download

 

It's basically Windows NT 5.2 with WINE binaries.

I managed to replicate the problem,Limbo is getting unstable when giving it too much RAM to use,

720mb is a safe amount of RAM to use with Limbo.
