Yes, I understand this is an alpha stage project. Anyway, I'm going to start using qemu (under Linux) instead of real hardware. Unfortunately, I can't seem to partition the drive image. I tried booting a live cd in the emulator and using it to format the drive, but it keeps freezing. fdisk does noth...

ACPI is what lets the OS know when the power button is pressed and choose to do something instead of just shutting off the power. I think it also handles standby and some laptop parts like the battery and power adapter. Anyway, I don't have any way to delete the file from the iso. I know there's som...

Okay... Tried the livecd of 0.2.9, booted and looks great! Unfortunately doesn't have any programs... Then I installed 0.3 SVN (does that stand for subversion?) and it appears to install fine. It even added a working entry to freeldr.ini. Unfortunately, it's now stuck on a blank blue screen. I remov...

New problems

Okay, the bootloader loads now. Unfortunately, it won't boot properly. I think there are faulty instructions in freeldr.ini. I can still boot it by pressing F8 and selecting custom boot, then hd0, then 0, then blank. The first time, it booted into its little setup thing and I ran through it. When it...

No, I hadn't tried that. I did just now and it wasn't there, as I expected. I think it has to be generated during setup. BTW, I am currently running only Linux on that machine. I do have others with Windows, though.

Bootloader is not installing!

I'm trying to install ReactOS 0.29. I ran the installation, and it installed all its files, but the bootloader isn't installed. The first part got installed to the partition OK. I can get to it by chainloading +1 with GRUB. (Don't know exactly what that means, but it's how you boot Windows.) It put ...
