for me to learn and explore what each directory is for.
You need to clone the source code to your hard drive, then explore all the directories to see what is in each. That is the way you will learn what is stored in what directory. Then if you need to ask questions, then ask them in Mattermost.

Can I find drivers that are as wide compatible as Windows?
Yes, on the Internet; just search for XP compatible drivers for your hardware.

Be warned that they may not install and if they install, they may cause a bsod. But having said that, they may install and work perfectly OK.

Any ideas ?
The answer to your question is no, but you could supply more information.

To show that screen, you have been able to complete the first stage, so what file system have you installed on?

When you see Kdb:> type bt and take another photo.

Any Idea what I may could try again? Thanks for any info.
* Remove any USB peripherals from the computer.
USB is still buggy. Use PS2 mouse and keyboard.

* Try installing more than once.
It is worth trying up to about 4 times. It just might succeed on further attempts.

If he has screwed up is hard drive only once, then he should be able to recover the original installation that he had before his failed attempt to install ReactOS, with Testdisk.

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

I think FAT32 is the better choice since its also supported by Windows. I can even exchange small system files using an old Win 98 1.44 MB floppy boot disk... That's the fastest way to boot into something like an OS on that machine. Using Linux for btrfs would take a longer time since I had to use ...

Re: ReactOS Wont Install

I popped in the ReactOS 4.10 disc into the CD drive, went through installation as normal until I got to the partitions part where nothing showed up. Just stuck on "Please Wait..." I would guess that it cannot read the hard drive or it is confused with the other hard drive. It should not be the CD, ...
