Re: Install ReactOS to memory stick?

So the ReactOS could be installed onto a USB stick _IF_ ReactOS did support USB sticks?

What about the bootloader? Would it automatically go to the same storage unit as the OS?

Re: Install ReactOS to memory stick?

Really?

What is the difference between an internal hard drive, and a USB one?
You CAN install it onto a internal one, so why not on a USB stick?

Install ReactOS to memory stick?

Re: Computer does not load desktop

I did it. Here is the info displayed on the WinXP computer which was connected to the ReactOS machine. I used Hyperterminal. The log shows all the debug info from the start of the install, including the language and keyboard layout wizard, to the point where it refuses to load the desktop. Note that...

Re: Computer does not load desktop

I can try. The CompaQ Armada M700 is so old it has 9 pin com-port.
The computer I am writing this from runs WinXP and I can connect them with a null modem cable.
But I don't know how to configure it.

Re: Computer does not load desktop

I just installed the latest build, and it did not solve the problem. The only difference that I noticed, apart from som changes in the booting, was a full computer freeze when I clicked OK at the place where I change the keyboard and language settings. Had to accept the defaults just to get past it....

Re: Computer does not load desktop

NICE!
I will try that.

ReactOS can run Windows software, right? Can it use the Windows driver disc for installing wifi-cards?
What about sound drivers?

Or can it only use Windows software, but not drivers?

Hello! I have an old Compaq Armada M700 laptop. I installed ReactOS on it, and it seems to boot. I have been through the whole graphical setup thing with keyboard language and time zone. This is what happens when I boot: *Computer is started. *Computer says: Please select the operating system to sta...

Re: Restore your MBR for ReactOS [GRUB, LILO] Bug 2733 [Real HW]

It did not solve the problem for me.
After the Super Grub Disk said it had been successfull, I rebooted.

When the computer restarts, it goes like this:
"FreeLoader does not understand features of this EXT2/EXT3 filesystem."

What can I do?
