Re: first boot - copysystemprofile() failed

* Try a fresh install - don't give up at the first try; make at least three attempts to install.
* Can you disable sound in the bios? - some people disable usb and audio, but I have never tried that.

Re: I cannot login Reactos bug tracker

I have found (over several months) that from time to time I have to log in again, though I have ticked the remember me box and when I have activated the form, nothing appears, so I reload the window and get the latest reports. This only seems to happen when I have had to log in again. So try loading...

Re: LiveCD: no USB keyboard and mouse

I have done another search and come to a page that does offer Win32 down loads, but as I have wrote already, it is only meant for evaluation; they want you to buy the full version.

Re: LiveCD: no USB keyboard and mouse

So,you are going to need the boot iso, not the live CD, and an ISO editing tool. Once the selected Image is opened in the software, then go to reactos>system32>drivers, and delete all .sys files with "usb" as the first part of the file name.Save the image and write it to a device of your pleasing. ...

Re: RosBE questions

I have still yet to find a solution to altering a file in an ISO image. I have no problems with the source, only with the ISO images. If I extract the contents of the ISO to the hard drive with 7zip and then alter a file, when I recreate the ISO, it will not boot. If I use readcd from cdrtools to ex...

RosBE questions

(a) What software does RosBE use to create an ISO image? (b) Can this software be used independently of RosBE? What I want to do is, unpack a bootcd ISO, then alter a file and repack it as a bootable ISO. I have used 7zip to unpack and IsoCreator to pack it into a ISO file, but it does not seem to b...

Re: ReactOS freezing during copying files

You can choose not to down-load Wine Gecko; you can run ReactOS without it.

The BTRFS driver was updated to the latest one, yesterday, so down load the latest build and re-test.
