Topic: How to install without booting from CD

Well. To get this to work, I used to create a fat32 partition and mount it in Linux. Then, you either use the ROS_INSTALL variable or point <reactos-src-path>/reactos to the mount point (as a symlink). I chose the latter. Then, build freeldr.sys (you can use either of the CD targets to do this; find...

Well, that's not what I meant. I meant driver support, not hardware support. That means the drivers I install are supported by the OS, rather like poorly supported applications.

If you run ReactOS native, is it slow?

I compile ReactOS trunk and 0.3 daily, but (when both work) they are really slow when running executables. Mouse movement becomes delayed, and it's if the CPU is on full load; but it can't be, unless there's a bug. However, it's not so slow running in Qemu. What's the problem? What config.rbuild opt...

Which part? I know how to use GRUB - it's freeldr that doesn't work; Linux works perfectly, as does memtest86+.

EDIT: Don't know what I did, but I fixed it. I think it's cos I applied the freeldr bootsector to the partition.

The partition is set as acti...
