Re: How do I watch star wars on react os command prompt?

1. Make sure you have Internet access in ReactOS
2. Make sure towel.blikenlights.nl server is up and running (currently it's not)

Re: SFI systems support

Also I trying to run ROS UEFI bootloader, but getting errors on VirtualBox. It is possible to use UEFI bootloader or it is yet another broken thing? ROS' own UEFI bootloader never was in working state, it was even excluded from builds because nobody maintained it for long time. However there are ot...

Re: What is the priority on USB keyboard/mouse support?

Just wondering what is the priority and progress on the development for USB keyboard and mouse support? ReactOS has bug-driven development, so if you want some specific hardware to work, you need to create valid bug reports for it attaching debug logs. From virtual machine perspective, USB keyboard...

Re: SFI systems support

Ramdisk boot is supported on WinXP, but it is supported on ReactOS too? Yes, ReactOS can be booted from Ramdisk, and yes, it's preferred method of booting when we don't have a suitable driver(s) for I/O yet (especially for new hardware ports). Also there is any restrictions about using public code ...

Re: SFI systems support

I mean only "magic PCI" (CF8+MCFG) - how it can be implemented without modify of existing PCI drivers? Windows pci.sys driver (as well as ReactOS pci.sys driver) relies on HAL, which is responsible to report information about PCI buses and devices to it (based either on PCI configuration ...

Re: SFI systems support

SFI basics: Boot: SFI systems uses NAND flash to store OS bootloader. First sector of the OS bootloader contains structure that describes its loading parameters - start address, size (any size - no 512 bytes limit), entry point, security signature. FW loading and running OS bootloader in x32 protec...

Re: SFI systems support

Windows never supported SFI, it was only supported by Linux. Whether a platform uses SFI or UEFI/ACPI depends from vendor. But does it mean if the platform uses UEFI and exposes both SFI and ACPI tables, it can boot Windows? - Asus Tablet 810 is based on Intel Atom Z2760 which belongs to Clover Tra...

I can attach it if need, but its content almost equal to sfi.h. Ok I have created a wiki page for this: https...

Yeah development forum section is about serious development, it's not for playing with version numbers or changing BSOD colors.

Re: SFI systems support

it would be better off in your own fork. That would make sense also because our support for different platforms on the same CPU architecture is a bit hacky, and officially we are building only ISO images for the PC/AT platform right now. Once we become more mature in this context (you probably know...

Re: SFI systems support

Not sure whether I'm interested with it or not, but it will be a lot more useful if you post all links to the documentation you have, and a list of particular hardware devices would be useful too, so one can start investigating it. Also one more question, do these devices have a vendor-locked firmwa...

Re: reactos-bootcd-0.4.15-dev-2916-ga9a22ae-x64-msvc-win-dbg.7z ISO USB boot loader error

OK, after starting over and following this writup on ramdisk install I get errors trying to load drivers starting from 'system32\drivers\cdfs.sys' and then system reboots. Please try livecd first. Trying a bootcd only makes sense when livecd works for you in the same conditions. With livecd it's al...
