    a lot of you are going to probably say wtf and ask why i'd want to do this but...

    does anyone know of a way to install windows mobile 6.5 onto the droid sd card and boot from there or partition the internal memory to dual boot?

    i know you can install android flavors onto a winmo phone and dual boot but can you do the opposite?

    thanks

    You would need a SBF file for a WinMo Motorola that has a touchscreen, and that would get you started. Problem is what WinMo touchscreen phones does Moto make?

    despite the fact that you said not to

    Why would you want this? It would run bad and be a real hack job. There is no way you would get complete functionality unless there was a big push and lots of people wanting this and lots of devs working on it.

    hmm... guess the short answer is no but the long answer is yes.

    i was just hoping there was an executable file or something similar to what XDA Dev has for WinMo 6.5 phones to dual boot with android. oh well.

    why would i do this? i got bored with a stock droid after a few months. then i rooted. now i'm bored with a rooted droid. just want to do something different without buying another new phone. looks like its craigslist/cellphones time. :(

    not a particularly helpful answer there, inssane....

    TBH, installing WinMo is not going to be easy at all - until someone figures out a way to write WinMo drivers for the hardware in the DROID.

    That being said, the *good* news is that you can at least find the Android Drivers for most of the devices (I say most b/c we still don't have native USB nor the FM Radio...) in Android, so if you know some really good WinMo devs, then you can get them a copy of a ROM to start with.

    Since CP already pointed you to the Motorola touchscreen device running WinMo, you're ahead of the game already.
