Re: The Basics of ROS (Sticky?)

Concerning "http://www.reactos.org/wiki/Modify_the_final_ISO_image" mentioned in one of the posts above, I don't see why CDMAKE and a simple batchfile aren't just integrated on the binary release CD. You'd copy the entire CD contents to a directory on harddisk, make modifications (add files, edit te...

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

dumping a textfile here so hopefully someone might consider it to be of any use to a wiki page detailling ReactOS in combination with VMware. Most noticeable are the VMware video drivers..even with the installer fixed now in phase 2 setup, I'm not sure the VMWINST program can extract drivers from ve...

Re: ROS installation on VmWare hangs in setup wizard

I've created a post earlier here about ReactOS installation, see if it's any good for you. Additional information, criticism etc is most welcome :)

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

Closed the issue. Also, your pagefile limiting instruction works just fine. Provided it's a maximum filesize setting, I'd likely have to change it to slightly below 2GB, then provide it as patch.

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

Not forgotten it, just not got a decent way to get files into ReactOS on real machine. Only way would be through a FreeDOS diskette or a bootable CD, don't like either solution. USB bootable flashdrives I don't got experience with.
Also doubting if I can reproduce the same error again.

Re: Trunk builds since 0.3.10...

I get that DMA error only when trying to burn a ISO in DOS to Atapi cdrom. Usually solve it by assigning SCSI cdrom instead.

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

Any suggestion to how to hardcode values for paging file in that InitP.c file? I've looked at it, but it's over my head. 100MB max size sounds fine to me, ReactOS shouldnt use paging file much at all on a (virtual?) machine with memory size between 100MB and 4GB or 6GB (if it does then memory manage...

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

TortoiseSVN took me some time to figure out - need a decent way to copy a file, create modifications, then select both the original file and the copy file, then open SVN Merge option, then finally create unified diff.. I'm not sure where the language resources can be found so parameter /Q would eith...

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

I'll try, one of these days, provided RosBE works on Win7 x64 (do I need Roxbe 32bit, 64bit or both where 32 is required and 64 is necessary addon?) and has a DIFF utility. However this is a fairly trivial bug, all other issues are much more 'interesting' :shock: For now, welcome World of Warcraft p...

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

You're a good spotter then for pictures :) As you've found all issues I'll list them as well : * text in start menu gets visually corrupted if hoovering over it. * "CMD /?" lists an unknown /Q option * "CMD" responds to "/P" paramater, either intentional or not, refers to DOS autoexec.bat also (at C...

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

Wish I could do that, but first need to get rid of the pagefile bug, or workaround it using the (unfortunately not working, see bug 4759) /MAXMEM option.

Here's some desktop fun .. spot which things are wrong : see pic (1650x1050, 140KB)

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

Besides installing on real machine, another trick I use is installation in Vmware first, on a raw disk. After that, reboot to real hardware. In VMware, VBE driver is used. Once rebooting same installation to real hardware, suddenly the VGA driver is used, strangely enough. As the mouse navigation is...

Re: ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

Thanks for the feedback on Bugzilla handling. Do these forums have any message edit functionality? Can't find it at first glance. Think I forgot to mention ROS setup will complain straight away if no harddisk found, thus saving time on not uselessly walking through other steps. Anything else I forgo...

ReactOS installation experience (real machine and VMware)

After some registration issues and help through IRC I'm finally able to post and would like to share my installation experience of ReactOS on VMware and real hardware. As you read on in my topic you might encounter non-registered bugs, currently I see no way to get a simple listing of *all* bugrepor...
