    I mean like “The Thing” is there a way to make it happen? We can play dos games, so maybe there’s a way?

    I’m sorry to burst your bubble 🙂, but no chance, unless you use something like Bochs or Qemu.
    Dosbox simply doesn’t support WinXP. Also, even if you could install it, WinXP would run painfully slow. To make things worse, the ARM cpu structure is very different from x86, so it’s even harder to emulate the advanced cpu functions needed.
    If you’re in the mood for tinkering, you can take a look here:

    But don’t expect anything near usable to come from it, it’s only a proof of concept.
