    Whose move, who to win and can we assume board is upside down due to white pawns configuration?

    1. h8=Q Rxh8 2. exf8=Q Rh4 3. Qh8 Rxh8 4. f8=Q Rh4 5. Qh8 Rxh8 6. d8=Q Rh4
    7. Qh8 Rxh8 8. c8=Q Rh4 9. Qh8 Rxh8 10. b8=Q Rh4 11. Qh8 Rxh8 12. a8=Q Rh4
    13. Qh8 Rxh8 14. Ra7 looks like a promising idea. White intends to play Rh7 and deprive Black of his h-file check for good.

    Doesn't look fast enough, R-a7 still leaves black with discovered mate it looks like to me. Ah, it works because the black rook is at h8 not h4 or 5 so if the knight moves to f6+ the white rook interposes at h7. Nice. That ends blacks attack because the white rook is protected by the knight. One try for black in that case could be N-g4+ but that attack soon peters out and the white king escapes and no more checks and the white steamroller starts up for good.

    Hmm, no comment from david113 yet. David, is this the solution? In a way, I hope it is not. The order of the Q promotions is not forced, and most of them could be Rooks instead of Queens.

    all of white's pawn are on the 7th rank?

    then...Nf3+

    If it is white's move then why not RxQ+

    This is not the solution. Black has a stalemate defense.
