Einfach ZIP herunter laden und entpacken, dann BOOT.BAT starten und es sollte laufen ..
Ahem... wo ist da eine BOOT.BAT? Alles was es da gibt ist ReactOS.vmdk & ReactOS.vmx

[ Well, it's alpha, like you said yourself, and it needs work before it will be usable fully. You do not get it: they seriously want that thing to be PRELOADED on new computers being sold! With all the fancy new hardware. While ReactOS just supports basic VGA and very, very select VESA devices. Tha...

Yet, they have the chuzpe to suggest that it gets preloaded on Dell computers. (Am I the only one in this forum who posts: MY PC DOES WORK WITH REACTOS ? Do they all work only for me and my DELL GX 260 ? Nice suggestion ..) The point is that it is YEARS from being usable for day-to-day work. Period...

The devs aren't getting anything for this, they're doing it for themselves and the benefit of PC users around the world. The sooner ReactOS can replace Windows the better, but even if it takes another 5 years, I'm glad it's here at all! It is their hobby, right. I have hobbies, too. Though I do not...

Well, Greyghost, good luck, you need it. Btw, did you notice you used the dreaded word "soon" again ;-)

I never assumed you doubt my experience, but you asked. Maybe I should have simply answered "yes"

I'll post again at the end of the year. I am very curious what will be my impression then.

preless of 0.3.1 is known not working with cpu : Amd XP, Amd 64 I said AMD K2, AMD Athlon (the original one), AMD Duron. None of those you mentioned (yes, I read the posts for months already). Mind you, it does not work on any Intel CPU, either. It seems all graphics cards are not VESA compliant, a...

Re: sorry to say that, but: ReactOS is a joke

Please keep in mind: my DELL works only with VGA driver selected on SETUP. Onboard graphic chipset is INTEL and doesn't work with VESA driver - please test that option on Your PCs !

sorry to say that, but: ReactOS is a joke

First, development is not slow, it is crawling without legs. 0.3.1. was announced for December, now we have march. The wording changed from "in a few days" to "within a week" (quite a few weeks passed since then). The various release candidates do not even boot. Hello? Even DOS can boot! Please spar...

Ich finde es auch lustig, wenn man dazu aufgerufen wird, allerlei Anwendungen zu testen und darüber zu berichten, wenn das Ding nicht einmal bootet.

Aber soweit ich weiß ist der SVN Trunk moment defekt ist und der PSH neu geschrieben wird oder verbessert (im Wiki nach SEH suchen ;) ).Gruß Radhad Ahem... immerhin wird die Preview 0.3.1 als "release worthy" bezeichnet. Da hat wohl jemand ein anderes Wörterbuch als ich. (Naja, die Beherrschung der...

So ein Mist... Der einzige Unterschied zu den Nächtlichen builds ist bei mir, dass anstatt mit schwarzen Bildschirm einzufrieren vorher noch das Logo erscheint :cry: Das kann ich zu 100% bestätigen. Früher (SVN) schwarz, jetzt Logo, dann immer tot. Auf "echter Hardware". Zwei Notebooks (Duron 800, ...

Is ReactOS supposed to run on real hardware or only in QEMU? To tell the truth, I tried this release candidate and previous SVN builds (talking about "live CD" only, do not want to brick my PCs) and so far none has ever managed to get far on any of my PCs (and I have plenty of PCs). You guys still h...
