As ReactOS evolves, it is possible to imitate this Linux feature.
A common LiveCD directory scheme is as follows:
Of them, we are going to use only:
/loader/setupldr.sys which is to be renamed as /freeldr.sys
/Profiles contains user folders such as My Documents and Application Data
/reactos the most important as it has inside all of the needed files by ReactOS
freeldr.ini our freeloader config file
Now these files must be copied to our Hard Disk, preferably to the root of the active partition.
Once copied it's time to edit freeldr.ini to adapt it to the Frugal environment, this consists in removing the switch /MININT from boot options, and adding an ARC path to SystemPath parameter, this must be accurate with the partition where our Frugal installation resides, i.e. multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\reactos
If the partition is shared with another pre-existent OS, and/or if the Hard Disk has already a boot loader installed, let's say GRUB, is needed to add the ReactOS freeloader to the list
Code: Select all
title ReactOS root (hd0,0) kernel /freeldr.sys
