You can't put Windows on it, but a newer version of Android might be possible. It's been years since I looked, but I think someone had Android 5 running on the Tab 2 at one point. I doubt it would run well though; the Tab 2 is very slow by todays standards.

As mentioned, you can't.

Your issues are:

  • CPU in the SoC of your tablet is 32-bit. Windows on ARM is 64-bit, there is no 32-bit version
  • Tablet has 1GB of RAM which isn't enough. Windows 10 on ARM needs 2GB.
  • UEFI is locked to the Samsung version of Android that came with your device.
  • SoC is too slow to run Windows 10.
  • No TPM or SecureBoot for Windows 11 support.

Note: "Windows 10/11 on ARM" is the full version of Windows 10 or 11 but designed for ARM64 based SoCs. It does NOT run on all ARM64 SoCs. The OS has specific requirements that the CPU in the SoC needs to support.
