Is that infomation about my hardware vicmarcal to make any sence where the recursion happened. I know that it worked in older versions of reactos.
My network card is build in and buying/hunting down said computer is not one of my options, but it is nice to know if I ever could aford to get a pc just to run reactos.If you want my advice, it is, go and find someone who sells corporate cast offs (every few years companies get rid of their computers and replace them with new ones). Seek out one that is from 2006 or older; if you want networking, then make sure that the network card or chip is a Realtek rtl8139, then the driver that comes with Ros will work. As for video, the vesa driver that comes with Ros always works good enough for me, but I have found situations where it would have been good to have had the proper video drivers for the motherboard installed.
