Re: No boot Windows or Reactos

If he has screwed up is hard drive only once, then he should be able to recover the original installation that he had before his failed attempt to install ReactOS, with Testdisk.

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

I think FAT32 is the better choice since its also supported by Windows. I can even exchange small system files using an old Win 98 1.44 MB floppy boot disk... That's the fastest way to boot into something like an OS on that machine. Using Linux for btrfs would take a longer time since I had to use ...

Re: Cannot boot after installation of 0.4.11

........ What do I do now? 1) Use a Linux livecd, like Puppy Linus and look in C:\reactos\ for a debug log. 1a) If you find a debug log, then consider creating a Jira Issue, but first check in Jira to see if the problem has already been reported. 2) Try one of the latest builds and see how far you ...

But the JIRA guys stated that 4.10 was too old. -Will I get serial output when I install the latest 4.12 RC...someting boot CD build? -do I have to or should I prepare the system when I try another ROS version? e.g. formatting or deltreeing the harddrives?

Re: ReactOS Wont Install

I popped in the ReactOS 4.10 disc into the CD drive, went through installation as normal until I got to the partitions part where nothing showed up. Just stuck on "Please Wait..." I would guess that it cannot read the hard drive or it is confused with the other hard drive. It should not be the CD, ...

Re: Installing Java JDK on ReactOS

I have installed Java 8 JDK, years ago, so if it does not install on the latest build, then a bug is at fault, which sometimes happens.

When you run the installer, it will show a window saying that, this operating system is not supported; just click OK and the install should begin.

Re: Testing on real hardware 2019

I downloaded and installed getbuild (0.4.13). When quoting the revision that you are testing, it is better to quote the part of the full revision, that I have highlighted in bold (below) and not just 0.4.13 reactos- bootcd-0.4.13-dev-343-ga73c17f-x86-gcc-lin-dbg .7z When creating a Jira Issue, that...

Re: Three questions

1) I do not know. 2) ReactOS, As in https://reactos.org/wiki/images/6/63/StartMenu.png If the top ReactOS is select, then there will be no debug output. 3) ReactOS comes with it's own Realtec RTL8139 lan driver and I think there is another one, but I cannot remember what it is.

Re: Testing on real hardware 2019

Could the second computer be a tablet with USB, with a serial<->USB adapter cable? I have no experience with a serial to USB adapter, so all I can say is, give it a try. The tablet will need a terminal app to capture the debug output. A little trick to try to get the mouse pointer to work, is to ke...
