Re: ReactOS in dualboot (with FreeDOS and WinXP)

... screws the MBR so bad that no other OS can store a bootloader in it rendering the VHD unbootable. My question is.

Re: GRUB and ReactOS

Well the LiveCD doesn't even boot form CD.... This depends on hardware and the ReactOS Live-CD revision You use. If You only want to taste: use ReactOS "Preloaded with QEMU". If You want to test on real hardware: first use a separate PC and don't endager Your working LINUX or WINDOWS installation. ...

It's funny because I had a copy installed about a year ago and everything worked fine. At least all the default drivers that came with ROS worked. I was hoping a...

Re: integrate a file oder directiory into the ISO file

See slipstreaming . Okay, understood and done - so ... now I want to add a EXE file to the liveCD ISO file. As far as I understood CDMAKE.EXE takes every file that is in the folder output-i386/livecd/ without any config file. Is that true? How can I create a link on surface - or in the START/progra...

Hello, I have installed RosBE and compiled the sources from 0.3.11 release. I have also created a bootCD ISO file (burned on a CDRW) with MAKE BOOTCD. Everything works fine. Now I want to put a EXE file (resp. the directory that contains it) into this ISO file. And I DON'T want to add it with a "ISO...

Did You do partitioning and formatting with the ReactOS setup disk ?
Or did You install into an exisiting partition ?

Will ReactOS really boot from a 2nd HD ?
Maybe it expects to reside on the "first HD", at 1st connector as primary device ..

Best regards,
