In other words, Ekos needs a local INDI server to cnnect to no matter what. But the astronomical hardware cannot be controlled directly from a Windows machine and Linux or macos is needed for that.

There is no INdI server for windows.
You only need and can only have Kstars / Ekos on your windows machine, then that connects to an INdI server running remotely on either another Mac, Linux or raspberry PI machine at the mount...
So the comtrol is done with the windows machine, but the remote machine CANT be a windows as it has to have INdI server on it... Hope that explains
