    iPad isn't designed for computer operating systems. It WILL run Windows, but with a lots of errors and crashes.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    It will not run it or install it at all.


    You can try a VNC program to remote access a windows machine.
