MacBook1,1 on Windows 10

Got some tools from Handy Man. I swapped the 250Gb drive from my MSI Wind U123H with the 60Gb drive of the MacBook.

I borrowed my friend's Apple Dev credentials and downloaded both Leopard and Snow Leopard DMGs as well as the Combo Updates for both from Apple. Thank you, Jayson!

Installed OSX SnowLeopard and Windows 10 Pro 32 bit. The BC2.1 driversare compatible with W10.

If like me you didn't want to bother with burning DVDs install rEFit(MacOS) this nifty program let's you boot from USB on old Macs.


System sluggishness, which is to be expected since the hardware is more than 10 years old. It is a slightly better experience vs my MSI Wind U123H Netbook but not by that much.

Since the battery has bloated I tossed it in the trash. The machine is basically non-portable and bound by the availability of a power outlet.

iTunes 12.5.5 installed but video playback is not supported. Probably due to the very old GPU. I will see how it performs for syncing and backing up my Grandmot…
