ReactOS-0.3.11 load problem

I have, at the second install (the first install ends up with a black screen) managed to run Ros and install some programmes, but when one programme installation went wrong, I rebooted, but it failed.

Tried to add MySQL to the compat database, but it only goes up to version 0.3.10. As anyone got a webserver to work in real hardware, because I have ...
