Wanted to test this on an XP era Mac.

Post by turpitude » Sun Oct 06, 2019 7:11 am

I have this Macbook (A1342) from mid-2010: https://everymac.com/systems/apple/macb ... specs.html

It has a 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo (P8600) and a Nvidia Geforce 320m.

I heard ReactOS's driver support got a lot better. I was wondering if I could install the XP bootcamp drivers on ReactOS? Has anyone tried this?

You could be the first to try it!

Keep in mind ReactOS doesn't support USB boot yet, but you can try it using RAM disk boot via USB: https://reactos.org/wiki/Installing_Rea ... B_RAM_boot

Through various trickery I got it to USB boot on my MacBook.
