PATA / SATA legacy support

Manche Mainboards haben aber eine im BIOS einschaltbare Legacy support Funktion für SATA HDDs, d.h. der Chipsatz kann eine reale SATA HDD fürs OS als P-ATA emulieren. Nützlich um Win98 oder etwa alte Linux-Versionen (die noch keinen SATA Treiber haben) zum Laufen zu bringen. Mit dieser Legacy Option...

Auslagerungsdatei auf einem Flashspeicher ... hmm? Wie verträgt denn ein aktueller Stick den Betrieb einer Windows-, Reactos- oder Linux-Auslagerungsdatei mit ungezählten Schreiblese-Zugriffen auf dem Flash-Speicher? Einen solchen USB Test würde ich dann doch eher auf einer externen USB Festplatte e...

Re: Wie zukunftssicher ist ReactOS?

Reactos wird voraussichtlich einen ähnlichen Lebenslauf wie Mozilla und Firefox nehmen, und auch nach einer Version 1.0 weiterentwickelt werden um dann kompatibel mit künftigen Windows-Versionen zu bleiben. Ob es wohl auch in verschiedene Zweige bzw. Module münden wird bleibt abzuwarten? Im Fall Moz...

Re: svchost.exe planned?

I suppose svc.host.exe will be necessary for internal and external compatibility?
Services. Windows / Reactos mixed domain ...

Will it be possible to make it compatible, but better than the windows version? (i think about blaster & sasser and collegues)

Chrome ist kein eigenständiges OS wie zum Beispiel eine LiveCD. 2. chrome ist ja anscheinend opensource? Dann müss...

install SVN

If you don't want to wait for 0.3.5, you should download one of the trunk nightly ISO's, or compile yourself the trunk downloaded with an SVN client, just as i do. I don't wait 6 months for an 0.3.5. I prefer compiling nightly sources myself (moving rosapps into reactos/modules), because the nightly...

Re: Problems on real hardware

SATA and USB workarounds: Following the hints about reactos problems with SATA and USB mice/kbds, i tried as well the renaming of uniata.sys to atapi.sys (because uniata supposed to support SATA ?) and the legacy support (PS2 simulation ?) in the BIOS for USB input devices. Both didn't change anythi...

Working antivirus software and guard in reactos for now?

This said, i would be interested to hear if any known antivirus software (clamav-win? avira free-av?)
is working at the current state of reactos?

Is reactos capable to start a service for an antivirus guard module?

Other partitions at risk? Alternative?

Risky too; you might lose your other OS's in a multiboot machine. Why should another OS on another partition of the same HDD be at risk? I suppose that if reactos is running on a partition of a defined physical range of the HDD's available tracks/sectors, reactos will not write blocks out-bound? Al...

Suppose firefox or sevenzip installed before upgrade, they also continue to work after. Only reactos own settings are overwritte...
