Re: EPIC WIN!

I'm really curious how you did it. I've tried with NT4 and ext2ifs driver and got "Unknown hard error" (on blue boot screen) after booting it from ext2 partition with FreeLDR. No idea where I made mistake. You need to load all the needed drivers at boot-time (change the Start value to 0 for each ke...

Re: EPIC WIN!

ReactOS booted from RAM disk with write access to the boot volume (using the Windows 2003 RAM disk driver), the volume on HDD image is formatted using ext2 file system.

Re: EPIC WIN!

ReactOS boots from the ext2 volume, thanks to the recent ext2 fixes in FreeLDR https://i.imgur.com/t5XUyAi.png Because of FreeLDR still lacking a working ext2 boot sector, I have installed FreeLDR on another FAT32 volume. EDIT: FreeLoader is able to boot Windows from ext2 volume as well. https://i.i...

Re: Lenovo Y520 15IKBN - Blue Screen of Death

I burn the release image and there is a folder where installfreeldr is located. You don't need to do that. You just extract the installfreeldr and setupldr.sys, then run installfreeldr and write bootsector on your USB drive, which you already did. Now what you need to do is to copy setupldr.sys fro...

Re: Lenovo Y520 15IKBN - Blue Screen of Death

Any ideas ? Lenovo Y520 15IKBN is an Intel 170 chipset based laptop. Since it has no optical drive and has only the xHCI USB ports, the two only ways to boot ReactOS are RAM boot or PXE boot . Please refer to one of these tutorials, if you get past that and it still fails (you might have issues eg....

Re: EPIC WIN!

Windows 8 x64 in VirtualBox 2.1.0 running on ReactOS, x64 guest virtualization needs VT-x capable hardware (in this case, a Lenovo Y50).

ReactOS x64 works as well ;)

Re: EPIC WIN!

Seems i was mistaken hardware OpenGL fails with ATI drivers i didn't realize you have to manually select the driver AFAIK you shouldn't actually override the graphics renderer with ones provided by GPU driver, it tends to cause issues and these should be already set as "System Default". To determin...

Re: Bootloader and multi-boot question

Can the ROS bootloader see Win 8.1 and Linux? The setup will likely fail to properly recognize these, so it can't by default. But you can easily add the BootMGR and GRUB entries to FreeLDR boot menu by editing freeldr.ini (after installation). For example, if you have ROS on first partition, BootMG...

Yeah! :D Microsoft Net Framework 3.0 SP2/3.5 SP1 from this addon: http://files.simplix.ks.ua/DotNetPlus.rar installs and works correctly in ReactOS...

I am creating a multiple GPU, six GPU's rack and I was wondering if ReactOS could be used as the operating system ?
No, OpenGL acceleration does not work with real hardware GPUs. Also, any recent NVidia driver would most likely fail to work anyways.

How to install ReactOS from RAM disk (useful for modern hardware testing)

This method allows ReactOS installation through entirely unsupported interfaces (eg. USB ports wired to xHCI controllers), which means you can (in theory) install ReactOS even on most recent notebook, as long as you have a SATA drive in it. I hope some of you will find it helpful. The Wiki page: htt...
