    I hate to be the only one to post to the topic, but...

    Oracle VM Virtual Box (Free) with XP installed on Ubuntu 12.06 LTS works just fine. Not that it helps you with your missing windows disk problem :(. Surely you know somebody who has a disk of some sort. Disable the network of the VM and get busy!

    But you are basically still in Winders, just running in a virtual environment.

    No, you're close...it IS still Windows. Just virtualized on Linux.

    Reminds me I need to find some free time (lol) to play with Linux again.

    Close with Winders is all I get anymore, if EFILive would natively run on Linux Winders would be a thing of the past for me.

    Linux fanboys are almost as bad as OSX fanboys, almost

    It interesting that FTDI do have both Linux and OSX drivers for their USB devices (which is what V2 uses). Now if Delphi make a compiler for either of those OS's then it should only take Paul an afternoon to port it over

    Default Installing EFILIVE on Ubuntu

    I just run a VM of XP on osx 10.8. Works flawlessly but it is annoying to have to do it as EFI live software is the only applications I use that don't have osx port.

    Maybe when V8 is 100% functional Paul could look in to an OSX port, but before that time it is still a Windows world out there so cater to the masses first. Oh, I have an old lampshade iMac G4 running Tiger, I can beta test
