Re: ReactOS in dualboot (with FreeDOS and WinXP)

The strange thing is that I tried to install ReactOS to the first partition and it gave that error message.

ReactOS in dualboot (with FreeDOS and WinXP)

Hi. A few days ago I was toying around with an old copy of WinXP, a copy of ReactOS 0.3.11 and FreeDOS 1.0 in VMWare player using M$Linux 11.2 as host. Thing is every time I try to accomodate ReactOS in a dualboot with either FDOS or XP, it either shows the "couldn't copy install directory"...

Re: A question about raw console mode in ReactOS

What I tried to say, in case you got it wrong. Is preciselly that it could be cool to be able to boot into a fullscreen SINGLE-TASKING CLI (similar to what msdos used to be) and the ability to switch from it to the MULTI-TASKING GUI and back to the SINGLE-TASKING CLI. BTW: never talked about multita...

Re: A question about raw console mode in ReactOS

There is another console mode which the real console mode "universe" that holding ReactOS galaxy. ReactOS just only use the small region of this vast universe. To use this universe, one need to re-design cmd.exe aware what environment it's was running on. Either single task text mode or m...

Re: A question about raw console mode in ReactOS

Just tried ReactOS in a VM. A few things to notice. 1) The "console" mode in ReactOS is the same "fake" console mode that 2k/XP uses (that´s why returning to console mode doesn´t work, it was in GUI mode all the time, except explorer.exe wans´t running) 2) This "fake" c...

Re: A question about ReactOS

Good to hear that. Now we only need to add a proper way to go back to console. And an option in the installer to set ReactOS to boot to console by default.
Also. How do you switch to GUI if you boot into console mode?

Re: Windows 'MinWin' and Windows 8

I had a similar idea. Make ReactOS able to boot into a dos-like cli mode in which you can run any cli/DOS apps and if the user needs to run a windows/graphical app he types something like "startgui" or "reactos" or something similar and the ReactOS GUI comes up (the same way that...

A question about raw console mode in ReactOS

Hi. I tried ReactOS a few days ago in a VM (under OpenSUSE 11.2b) and would like to ask. Can it boot into raw console mode and only open the GUI on-demand (like win9x did when you added the bootgui="off" to the msdos.sys file)? If there isn´t any thing like that currently. Is it something ...
