Thankyou for showing interest in ReactOS. First of all, be aware that ReactOS is still in alpha. The compatibility target for ReactOS is Microsoft Server 2003 on x86 hardware. Therefore, ReactOS may not run well on computers designed for operating systems other than Microsoft Windows XP /Microsoft Server 2003.

The best hardware to try ReactOS on is hardware that originally shipped with Microsoft Windows XP (Home or Professional editions) or Microsoft Server 2003. Avoid hardware that uses a USB port for its keyboard or mouse, the ReactOS USB driver is not fully implemented and has bugs. Laptop computers often use USB to communicate with their built-in keyboard and mouse pad.

Do not be discouraged. Help the ReactOS forum community help you. Read this post:
https://reactos.org/wiki/Installing_ReactOS
and this:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13361

Then come back to this thread that you started. Edit your initial post to add information that can help other ReactOS forum readers understand your computer and its configuration. Again, thank you for thinking about trying ReactOS on your computer.

USB support may come shortly, but don't be disappointed. Again, ReactOS is still in an early development phase.
Disable USB in your BIOS and use traditional keyboard/mouse.

You may also want to try ReactOS in a virtual machine.

Thank you for answers.
Meantime, I was already using Reactos in the virtual machine.
Reactos works on the virtual machine.
There is no problem here.
But I wanted to build Reactos on the real machine.

Meantime, i live in Tukey and i am using reactos in Turkish.
I am generally satisfied with Reactos Turkish.
But it needs to be improved a little bit.

One more thing, Reactos needs to increase the .net framework support.
And, is reactos possible to use Visual Studio in this?

As a result, I love reactos and I support its development.

As far as I remember even I "patched" ReactOS in terms of improving a few German phrases some years ago.
You could help to improve the translation of your language. It would be appreciated.
