Hey Pal!
Loved the video but a few quick questions.
I have a windows XP I want to put it onto.
The newer Dell laptop i have is what I downloaded React OS onto, I burned it on a disk ect ect.
On the Hewlet Packard I need to be able to install it from Bootup.
I didnt see how you did that. My disk isnt working from bootup. Maybe I downloaded it wrong?
Please state how you downloaded it and any steps you may have taken that I may have forgotten to make
the disk capable of downloading upon Bootup.

Thanks! :)

I used the inbuilt win disc burner for that.

What's happening? You chose the DVD as boot drive? Did the dvd drive spin up or did you get any message?

Awesome, thank you so much! I was wondering why there was a spike in YouTube traffic to that video :) I truly appreciate you're support. None of my videos are monetized, but I like to see how many people are viewing them every now and then. I did see a large spike over several days.

And a big "Hello" from the USA! I had to translate that site.

I've got a new idea for my next video that will be pretty impressive (if it works). I haven't found any videos like it (yet) on YouTube. I'll PM you once I have all the hardware, start creating the video and verify it will work. It may be something you want to share as well, it will rank high on the cool factor in regards to ReactOS. Thanks again!

Maybe I'll make a separate video on that, but it's really easy. Just download the .ISO image and burn it to a DVD/CD. Then, use whatever boot options on your PC's BIOS allow you to boot from the CD/DVD (instead of the hard drive - usually press a Function+Number key such as "F1" on boot - google your PC's model to find out exactly). Then, just follow along the video. In Windows (at least in Win10), you can right-click the .iso to burn it to a DVD/CD. If that doesn't work for you, I've used a freeware app. Gizmo Manager which is pretty handy at burning ISO's as well. Hope this helps!

Last night I was able to get ReactOS installed (with networking support) running on my Synology DS918+NAS / Server using Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). Still testing it out, but going well. It may be something you might find interesting, here's a link to my other thread with some more info. to see if anyone would be interested in the steps to do this: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17517&p=132894#p132894
