Hi. This depends completely on whether Your particular tablet has a jumper on the motherboard that allows flashing the ROM, or if it's just natively flash-capable.
If it is flash-capable, Your best option is going to be to use a copy of "Windows CE", which gets built by the hardware it's being installed onto.
The easiest place to see this OS is either on Youtube or by restting Your local store's price-checking devices. Most of them boot into a WinCE environment.
There WAS a company called "Craig" that had a bunch of small netbook hardware that offered either a Windows version or an Android version at places like Rite-Aid for $150.00, but they never lasted in-store long, & were frequently half-priced for certain deals.

In nearly all cases, Android tablets use ARM processors, not x-86 processors from Intel or AMD. Normally, Windows can only be installed and run on x-86 processors = can't with ARM processors, except for specialized cases like the recent Win 10 S (emulated) on ARM netbooks. Similarly, most Linux distros can't normally be installed and run on ARM processors.
If you have a high-end Android tablet(= at least octa-core ARM CPU, at least 4GB of RAM and large internal storage), you can install Windows on Android in a sandboxed container by rooting the device and using the Limbo PC Emulator, Busybox and VNC Viewer apps. Otherwise, too slow and laggy.
....... For installing Linux on Android, use the Linux Deploy app; ... and high-end Samsung Galaxy Android tablets have the Linux on DeX app.

Most likely the Android BIOS won't allow it.

I would not recommend it number one and Android tablet probably is going to be so short on RAM that windows won't run on it. And the processor will be too slow to keep you happy.
The big problem is is that you're never going to find any drivers.

Probably not, but you would have to be way more specific about your tablet to be sure. Windows for ARM processors doesn't have a generic installer; it has to be tailored for each device. And quite frankly, it probably wouldn't do what you wanted it to do, anyway.
