    Windows 10 on early 2008 Macbook 4,1
    I know this is not officially supported, but I have seen a YouTube video of a guy running Windows 10 on the original, first Macbook (2006), so I'm thinking it surely can be done on a 2008? According to the Bootcamp support pages at, neither Windows 7 nor 10 will work with my Macbook, but I'm adventurous and don't mind taking some risks. Any success stories, helpful hints, or words of encouragement/warnings?

    Not much hacking discussed herew. Go over to Mac Rumours and see what is on offer there. I would not even try to run Windows on that dinosaur.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    The answer to both of your threads regarding the older Macs you recently picked up can be found over at (as Harry has suggested). They have an entire forum dedicated to doing what you're trying to do. Good luck and let us know what happens.
