This was unfortunately the case with the last BootCamp software/drivers that were Windows 8/8.1 compatible. Apple had a chart listing compatibility, and only the newer machines were listed as being supported (although actual driver support reached a little farther back).

It seems nearly impossible to get BootCamp 6 if you DON’T have the required hardware system this time around, which means you don’t have an option to force the installation. The last BC software (5.1) was available to download from Apple’s site as a separate package, and with a little magic seemed to work fine for older hardware (once you manually started the installation)…for Windows 7, at least.

That seems weak.  I was able to upgrade to Win 10 on my 5 year old ACER laptop.  There’s still one unknown device missing a driver, but for the most part it works fine.

Oh, no! My CPU only has two cores instead of 4! I only have 5 gigs of ram, and worse, I only have 500Gb of disk space. I guess I can’t run anything newer than 98SE. Sarcasm.

It’s Apple. Their users will send them a thank you for looking out for them and having their best interests in mind. :wink:

First I get that your post is sarcasm .

I know Windows 98 SE can’t run a 500GB drive .
IIRC 120GB is the limit.
Same with the RAM . I never had even 1GB on Windows 98 SE.
The old computer I still have it on the MB has a max of 768MB.
It is capable of going online but no website works well with the browser.
I’ve only tried to see if I could.
I keep it to run old software if I feel the need.
