Widows XP

Is it possible to run windows XP and higher on Replit using qemu? I have the hacker plan and boosts, and enough space.

Sure, just install it and run it on a windows virtual machine or smth

@btfuss where would get the image, and how would it fit in replit (less then 5g)

@DonoldJTrump You'd need to legally obtain a copy on an installation CD. Replit doesn't like it when you put pirated software on their servers. Also, I've had an interesting experience with Repls >1 Gb

@SixBeeps assuming i have the live cd, what would i do next

@DonoldJTrump Get an ISO creator and turn the CD contents into an .iso file. Upload it, then give it to qemu to run.

@SixBeeps will it work if i use:

qemu-system-x86_64 linux.img
