Re: 0.4.9 needs 8MB video buffer on Dell Optiplex GX270

hi ctasan,

I tried your suggestion and entered VGA mode for the second part if the install.
unfortunately it hung in a similar fashion only this time there was no debug console. I'm going to try and generate a backtrace and
add it to the bug report.

Re: Real hardware 0.4.9

That would be nice if they had time to work on this bug. I searched around but I really couldn't find anything described like this problem. I was able to get a BSoD when trying to boot ReactOS in VirtualBox with display memory below 5 MB. I filed two bug reports. https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE...

I don't know if there is a minimum requirement for the video buffer but this behaviour might qualify as a bug if it's supposed to behave l...

Re: Real hardware 0.4.9

This thread got me interested in trying ReactOS on real hardware, good to see it's installing on other computers.
