System requirements

Post by PeterLinuxer »

What are the system requirements of ReactOS? Especially I want to know how large the ReactOS HD partition should be?

Hello Peter.

even with some applications and RosBE installed my virtual disk is below 2 GB in size. So anything reasonable should be sufficient as long as you don´t want to store huge amounts of data. If you are new then I would recommend the installation of ROS at a virtual-machine like VirtualBox however. I had some minor problems with corrupt file-systems recently, this potentially puts your other partition at risk too. With a virtual installation you can try ReactOS in a safe environment, clone the system as often as you want, and the virtual-disk-file can grow dynamically if needed.

As a minimum... around 512 MB. But keep in mind that the system partition should be bigger than amount of RAM.
