    The platform may not use a standard boot chain (BIOS / UEFI) that Windows understands. Microsoft would have to write a new hardware abstraction layer (hal.dll) to comply with the differences, but that's it.

    Microsoft is working on converging the different Windows strains into one. Right now there's Windows (client editions and server editions), Windows Embedded, and Windows Phone. If they can be converged successfully it shouldn't be more of a design decision on part of the manufacturer.
