Re: [SOLVED]Is there a configuration where most things just work?

I should mention, I'm only interested in running alternate OSs on real hardware. I figure there are enough people running on VMs. I've been around since the early days when the project had a different name, so I've checked out various threads in the forums. I'd just never seen a 'just works' configu...

Re: Is there a configuration where most things just work?

I did some reading and see this. I'll get one. I guess the latitudes I have aren't close enough.

Dell Latitude D531

[SOLVED]Is there a configuration where most things just work?

I follow a few other alternative OSs. There exists for most of them some hardware configuration such that most things I consider essential work and crash frequency is measured in hours. For instance, I currently have laptops which more or less work and are stable enough running AROS, MenuetOS, and H...

Re: HW Test: Dell Vostro 1000

Due to lack of time, my try of 0.4.13 has come to an end. Installed and tested quite a few programs from the reactos app store, most of which were more stable than my attempts to install previous versions ros on real hw. USB mouse worked well. Blockers for me include: 1. Locking up when trying to in...

HW Test: Dell Vostro 1000

Seems to have installed ok. I managed to make this post after installing just one driver from Dell's site, the ethernet driver. Then installed opera and am able to make this post. We'll see how much I can get running. So far no crashes.

Re: ReactOS on Toshiba A135-S4527

I've installed 0.4.12 on this same machine. This time it's quite a bit less stable. By this I mean the machine locks up every time I try to install a driver with SDI.

Re: ReactOS on Toshiba A135-S4527

Update: I reinstalled 0.4.11 and stayed away from usb and it's much more stable. The main crash I get now is for tcpip.sys, i think, typically when downloading large files. I'll keep using it though. I think I'll consider reactos ready for this machine as soon as these issues are addressed regardles...

Re: ReactOS on Toshiba A135-S4527

Yes, that was one of the points of the post. It's getting close enough that I think it might be ready for the masses before I die. Couldn't say that until now :) I should note that since this post I added all of the Libraries in the application manager and upon reboot bsod. All of the f8 boot option...

ReactOS on Toshiba A135-S4527

For years I've tried most releases on real hardware. 0.4.10 was the first release I could run it for a while without BSOD. But if I tried more than solitaire, It'd crash. That changed with 0.4.11. After trying to install it on a few laptops without success, I discovered it ran reasonably well on thi...
