    So Microsoft says you cannot run windows 10 on the Xbox one/series consoles. Does anyone know if the console boots off of the hard drive? Or is there a storage chip souldered to the board?
    The reason I am asking is because I want to see what happens if i install an HDD with windows 10 on it into an Xbox one.

    Because Windows 10 requires a WWDM (Wideband Wavelength Division Multiplexing) compitable GPU.
    Good try though! ;)

    hmmmmm....
    uhh
    well I think it`s os and bios may have a storage chip. (I`m not an Xbox owner but according to my knowledge of gaming consoles I do think it has a storage chip to store everything related to it`s game loading and etc....)

    Because many consoles (I opened up) had a storage chip.

    Yeah. The xbox 360 E or S (forget which one might be both) had no HDD inside.

    Yes, the OS is stored on a hard drive.

    Well, the OS might need quite a bit of modification to its core components so it could support the proprietary hardware in there, but it is theoretically possible to get Windows 10 on an Xbox.
