Re: just installed ReactOS on a VM and was greeted with this error

Bug reporting advice from around the Internet: How to Report Bugs Effectively by Simon Tatham This is the Internet's go...

Re: Should I make a Pinball game for ReactOS?

Thank you, hbelusca. I knew Raymond Chen had written a more recent blog post about Pinball. However, I didn't see it when I searched his recently remodeled The Old New Thing blog.

Re: Booting on laptops with only USB CD-ROM connections

Look for "How to install ReactOS from RAM disk" in the ReactOS Tutorials Forum. This may be a workaround for experimenters who have only Internet and USB connections on their test PC.

I have a HP DV6000 model.
Providing a web link to the manufacturer's specification page would be helpful. Here's a start: HP Retired Products.
Any news on the USB boot?
