Re: Which is the best way to burn Live CD to a USB?

Is it just my computer? Possibly. Has I wrote in my edited post above; I have tested on 3 different computers. A Dell desktop failed to run the livecd from ram; failing almost at the end of booting. A Dell Latitude E4310 and a HP Compaq nc6120, ran the livecd perfectly alright. By the way, my compu...

Re: Which is the best way to burn Live CD to a USB?

I have successfully installed as per tutorial, but on reboot (second stage), it gives a loading hiv failure error message. Change rdisk(1) to rdisk(0) in freeldr.ini or via F8 menu, this should help. That indeed solved the not loading hiv failure. I have just installed from a CD and everything work...

Either that tutorial is wrong, or my computer isn't capable of booting ReactOS. The tutorial was written from my own experience of following the the official tutorial . I have successfully installed as per tutorial, but on reboot (second stage), it gives a loading hiv failure error message. There a...

Re: About automatic build

Or do you know how the batch file enters commands into RosBE? If anyone knows it, I would appreciate it if you could tell me. I may be showing myself to be an idiot here, but I will attempt to answer you. I have very limited understanding of code, but I would suggest that you look at the scripts in...

Re: STOP: 0x0000007B

1. ReactOS is in the alpha stage, which means it is not ready for daily use.

2. If you are going to get help, then you need to supply much more information.

3. Please read this page. You should find something there to help you.

Re: HW Test: Dell Vostro 1000

Please state what version of ReactOS you are testing with and the version number of the software tested. This information could help others.

Also, if you get something working that has not been reported before, then please post images and details in the EPIC WIN thread.

Re: Unable to install on real hardware (hardware details in post)

I think that your problem may be with the SSD.

I have 2 suggestions:
1. put an ordinary hard drive into one of your computers and try again.
2. buy a much older computer; one about 10 or more years old, that would have run Windows XP.

When creating a new VM, the dropdown area to select the OS template is blank.
I have experienced the blank inputs, years ago. And since then, when ever I have tested (not very frequent), there was never any change.

Boot order

I would like to know the boot order for ReactOS.
In which order does the hal, ntoskrnl and etc. load?
Is there some where in the source code that I can easily find what gets loaded and in what order.

Thanks for any help.

Re: unable to install drivers with snappy driver installer.

I assume you are referring to the latest release build of ReactOS (0.4.13). You need drivers for Windows XP/2003. I have no experience with snappy driver installer , so I cannot help with that. But please note that, the correct drivers may not even install, if they do install, they may make the syst...
