So, my general goal is to emulate a Raspberry Pi via an ARM emulator in Windows 10. I, essentially, want to initialize the card and configure it so I can either ssh (I'm not entirely sure how to do that, but that's why I bought the thing) or, more likely, VNC into the device over an ethernet cable and operate it with my laptop's keyboard and mouse.
To this effect, I downloaded and installed a QEMU binary from here, http://qemu.weilnetz.de/w64/, specifically qemu-w64-setup-20150811.exe (version 2.4.0). I understand I need to use the command line here, and I've figured that I need to qemu-system-armw.exe (I could be wrong) to emulate the ARM architecture of a RPi, but I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to string commands together to get a virtualization to boot off of the SD card. I've read as much of the documentation as I could but it still seems unclear.
Any help would be immensely appreciated.
