    Re: Trouble installing Wine

    Such software needs low level access to the hardware/firmware (BIOS or UEFI firmware in this case). Nothing of that sort can be used with Wine, it needs Windows installed in bare metal.

    Although very different from virtualization, Wine sort of works in a pseudo-virtual environment where Windows software memory calls are translated to their Unix/Linux equivalents . In simple terms, software requiring such level of hardware access or interaction is "lost in translation".
