Would ReactOS work on these 2 barebones?

Post by Julcar »

Investigating for alternatives to Intel/AMD I found these interesting barebone machines:

http://www.compactpc.com.tw/products/item/49
http://www.compactpc.com.tw/products/item/58

Both of them supports Windows Xp, so I guess should also support ReactOS and also their drivers.
I am interested on buy one to test Ros on it, but before leasing the cash I would like to know your opinion.

There's never any guarantees.

It's impossible to say for sure, but on the plus side they both have serial ports so you should be able to do some debugging more easily.

http://www.compactpc.com.tw/products/item/49 has good chances to be compatible, but someone should set an experiment to prove that

I got an answer from the manufactuer and they said that http://www.compactpc.com.tw/products/item/49 (Vortex86MX) are closer to End-Of-Life, and http://www.compactpc.com.tw/products/item/58 (Vortex86EX) is way cheaper, they also offer a dual-core option (Vortex86DX3) but as ReactOS only support one-core per cpu, would be an useless choice.
