cross over uses wine to run windows apps on a mac, I think its available for other boxes too.

React is one of the alternatives

I have one or 2 other alternatives sitting on my storage drive as a virtual machine image.  Tested them in virtual box one was really slow, and the other crashed all the time.  They got that part of windows copied perfect.

Also there is TinyXP and other flavors.  These are considered pirated.  I think they are pre activiated so no winblows genuwine dis-advantage.

Set up the same thing..

DavinciJ15 has taken Microsoft's free HyperV and installed some mining software/drivers and has instructions on how to install it to USB.  See this thread:  http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9679.0

WinPE can be modified to work as a "free windows os"...

is not illegal, but you have to generate the WinPE by yourselft using Windows AIK, and only YOU can use it, you cant distribute it, only the scritps to make them... and still you need to create the WinPE on an already working Windows 7, thats is how i created "MinerPE" system, with is based on a modified MakePE...

here is a screen of a already running WinPE created by "Make PE 3.0"

Be careful if these are from dells or other OEM machines they keys are useless, if these are personal copies that were purchased they will be fine however

AMD is starting to phase out support for even Windows XP.

I wouldn't bother with anything less than Windows Vista / Windows 7 these days Smiley

Just something i stumbled on tonight, If you want a cheap copy of windows 7 this would be your best bet, you'll avoid the one gpu pe limit and the difficulties of seting up hyper-v to mine(should be possible kernel is intact haven't tried it yet)

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Leaked? Lolwut.


It's a dev preview and freely availible for download.


Oh and AMD has drivers availible and it works fairly well with a single 5870.
