AMD Processors compatibility

by kernow_boy In reply to AMD Processors compatibil ...

I've run Linux on an AMD Athlon and I worked ok.

Generally the operating system will work on AMD or Intel as the AMD is backward engineered to mimic the Intel family of processors.

So good luck give it a go you have nothing to loose you will not do your computer any harm if it does not work, you will just have to reload

BEWARE make sure there is no information on the harddisk/partion you are installing the OS on as different OS have different disk formats.

AMD processors can run anything that pentiums can, if the processor has enough memory to work with. AMD processors are equal to any, they may be a little slower, but they are more stable.
Good Luck, Jesse
