RamDisk Boot Option

Post by Pi_User5 » Mon Oct 06, 2014 4:16 pm

What does the RamDisk option do in Freeloader? When I select it, it fails.

Option: http://goo.gl/NXgaKC
Fail: http://goo.gl/f3e5Al
I use ReactOS on real hardware. Will you? My Computers: https://www.reactos.org/wiki/PC_ROS_Rigs Go all the way to the bottom.

Registry corruption failure due to hard reboot of your VM, you're good for reinstalling ROS.

Okay. I will do that and try again.

Tried it. It still does not work. I just finished the second part of the installer and was about to boot for the first time.

Ok. What would it normally do when the option is selected?

If ramdisks worked, it would load some kind of "reactos.bin" ramdisk image and boot it (the file name being specified in the kernel command line in freeldr.ini). But anyways. The option is there just for the only dev who sometimes work on it, or to push people writing patches to fix the issue.

So it would create a disk drive to store things sort of like ImDisk toolkit?

Your reactos.bin image would be the ReactOS C:\ drive (for example), from which ROS booted.

Hi all,
Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, but i just realized about a software which would be good to hav e working in ROS.... and it´s a RAMDisk driver!

https://sourceforge.net/projects/imdisk-toolkit/

Pro: It´s Open Source!

EDIT: The driver itself is here

(What open source licence?) --- After looking: "GNU GPL" Good.
ReactOS Donator ~ $5.00 | Linux Mint Donator ~ $1.00 in BTC
