Someone got Windows 10 running on a Lumia 950 Windows phone
Just a few days after someone got Windows 10 on ARM working on a Lumia 950XL Windows phone handset, another industrious individual has managed to install it on the smaller Lumia 950.
The hacker, NTAuthority, claims in a series of tweets that he followed a similar method to that which was used for the Lumia 950XL hack but he needed to patch several drivers and ACPI tables to get it working properly.
Most of it matches, however you'll have to replace some ACPI tables with patched versions from the 950, and to run with core drivers you'll have to patch a few of them.
I'd suggest waiting for future instructions by people involved with this research.

While having a version of Windows 10 working on a phone is pretty cool, it’s not exactly practical due to the physical size of the screen and the slower processing power of the device.
