  • It is worth noting these betas won't work without ACPI. Yes, I tried getting it on PCem, the result wasn't pretty (I kept getting RSoDs and boot errors).

  • Yas! I installed this on VirtualBox using GParted live CD. Idk pretty much about AHCI, SATA, IDE, etc.. But maybe try to format your partition or drive on GParted, because on setup it wouldn't let me install on drive cuz it's unsupported type disk, idk why, but I couldn't format in setup. WTF?

    That. It installs on QEMU since it does have BIOS that supports ACPI.

    Well, I installed this on VMware, Virtualbox, and on my old Dell laptop successfully. But, when installing VMware tools it's giving me BSOD, I think it's because of RAM. But RAM is 1 GB. But on Virtualbox is another problem with guest additions. Guest additions is not supported on Longhorn?! I think the answer is no. But on Dell it's running smoothly and without problems. But there is some kind of problem with network. I think that's why it's called "beta"...

    Yes, it is best run on emulated hardware and not on visualizers like VMware or VirtualBox. If VMware Tools is not installing, then your configuration is likely incorrect or nearly incompatible for these builds.

    Make sure to use VMware or VirtualBox. Those two work.
