The enthusiast has compiled detailed instructions for running Windows 10 on Apple computers with proprietary processors.
Apple computers are bought primarily because of the proprietary macOS operating system, but there are a number of specialized applications that run only on Windows. Therefore, after the presentation of the first devices on the ARM-chip M1, many were worried about the issue of compatibility with the Microsoft operating system. One of the enthusiasts managed to solve this problem.
Officially, Windows 10 is not yet optimized for the new Macs with the M1 processor. Apple assures that, for their part, they did everything possible and now everything depends on Microsoft . German developer Alexander Graf decided to take matters into his own hands. He wrote on Twitter that he was able to run the Redmond OS on an "apple" chip.
According to Graf, the system is fast enough and even capable of emulating x86 applications, although not quite as well as Apple's Rosetta 2, but still acceptable for normal use. The developer used the Hypervisor.framework tool to virtualize the Windows ARM64 inside assembly and made some changes to the QEMU emulator. This method allows you to interact with virtualization technologies without writing kernel extensions (KEXTs).
