Im quite curious about this question, earlier builds didnt require ACPI, this one does because of BOOTMGR. The system itself dont even require it. Any hackjob to install it on non-ACPI machines?

As they wrote in another topic, I quote "Builds 5048 and 5112 can use NTLDR, but by default they use bootmgr. Maybe those builds can be gotten to work without ACPI, but by default, again, only pre-reset Longhorn builds can."

If you need a link to this topic, I can send it to you.

(But as I understand it, this question is quite difficult to answer)

This means i just can replace new BOOTMGR with old Longhorn 4.x NTLDR?

I apologize for not answering, but you can try this, although it’s not a fact that it will work.
