Raspberry Pi 3 A+

#1

Has anyone got windows running on a Raspberry Pi 3 A+? I tried it on an A+ and zero, and neither worked. Looks like, from what I have seen, only the Pi 3 B and B+ are supported.

#2

My guess would be your ram. The A+ only has 512mb of ram. Anyone else feel free to come in here with suggestions. It definitely doesn’t work on a Zero. I can tell you that for sure.

The Raspberry Pi A+ wouldn’t get past the rainbow splash screen. I forgot that the A+ has about half the RAM, and even if you did get it running it likely wouldn’t work to well. I figured the Raspberry Pi Zero wouldn’t have worked, just thought I would try it.

#4

Yeah it’s unfortunate, but the amount of memory you’ll be using will surpass the amount that is even in the A+. I’d run out and get a 3B or 3B+ and give it a go if you want to. I have a how-to video on here if you’re looking to boot to an SSD as well.

#5

No chance. The pi zero’s dont have 64-bit cpu’s afaik, and the a+ does not have enough ram.

#6

Correct. The Zero is near identical to the original Pi

#7

This should eventually get split to another topic, but has anyone tried with the Compute Kit? That would be pretty cool because we could have a Pi in a motherboard formfactor and would fit Windows much better.

#8

I haven’t even heard of that until now, but it would be pretty cool if it worked! That’s going to be incredible once released!
