Had to try it… but I really don’t want to provision and install Windows 10 preview bits on a real PC just to burn an image to a Flash drive.

Thanks to this post, someone figured out how to do it using just a few DLL’s from the Windows 10 install ISO. Downloading it at home would take forever, so got creative and downloaded it on a machine on a fast connection, Dropbox’d the relevant bits over to myself, and bam! Windows 10 Raspberry Pi image. Happy to report it works on Windows 8 just as nicely. Just view the \sources folder on the ISO and just copy all of the files (no subfolders) that are below 15MB in size to somewhere on your local disk. Then throw the flash.ffu file in there and you’re ready to rock.

The flashing process looks like this:

After successful flash, the SD card looks like this:

Done!
