Helpful Information?

It is on how to install eCS on the EEE PC. Could this be helpful in installing ROS onto the EEE PC? :?: :idea:

Once you have grub you can start ros freeloader so yep that will work.

If only it was stable enough to work right now, then that'd be cool.

Worth Waiting For

Post by tomleem » Thu Feb 07, 2008 5:40 pm

I think it would be worth waiting for.

It would be neat if one could install ROS onto a SD card and boot the EEE PC from it. :idea: 8)

ReactOS on EEEPC

Post by Jaix » Tue Mar 11, 2008 10:52 pm

Well, it will not only be possible to install ROS from USB, but also it will be possible to install ROS on a USB drive. This will enable us to boot and run ROS from an external drive like an extra OS not affecting any setting on the primary drive much like a live cd works but without the downsides of not being able to change any settings or save the work easily.

First however we must have a working USB stack and drivers to be able to do so, Fireball has made a lot of what is needed, but it isn't ready, so if someone needs a challenge to prove thay you are manly, you are welcome to take a bite out of it.

This is written on my new XO computer that hopefully also will run ROS in a not too distant future.

This has nothing to do with this thread, so don't comment it. This is just pure enjoyment for a sys freak.

some sites making a bootable usb drive

Post by tomleem » Thu Mar 27, 2008 9:26 pm

http://www.google.com/search?q=bootable ... =firefox-a
Google results for "bootable usb drive". If the sd card is like an usb drive (to the EEE PC, then these sites could be useful in making a bootable sd card? :?:

I had tried it, but my cardreader who is bootable didn't boot my SD card with a ROS LiveCD or installed image (extracted VMWare image)

Guennie, as u should know reactos stil lacks of propper usb support, so dont expect to run it from a usb drive just yet... only thing that could help it is a cardreader with ide interface which are verry (if not extremely) rare!

Win Compatible

Post by tomleem » Mon Mar 31, 2008 12:38 am

Since ReactOS is win compatible and does not take up much space, it would be fast and one could run different win programs on it. 8)

Being a little bit of a non-conformists, ROS is different. :lol:

Like I said just add wine!

I like reactOS but i dont see it as being a liable OS for a subnote book in its current state. Wine is a much better choice at the moment.
