phoenix63,
If want to do some more testing, then try this one https://sourceforge.net/projects/reacto ... 8-CLT2018/ it is newer (0.4.8 and not 0.4.7) and will be much more stable, because it was created for Chemiz Linux Tag, to be handed out to people.

I tried the 0.4.7.2-livecd on this laptop, yesterday, that mrmajik45 has posted a linked to today, and it BSODed.

You may yet get some more feedback from THFabba, about your first issue yet.

Do you want me to try your version as well as mrmajik45's one ? Or shall I just try yours instead ?
Thanks

I would try the one that I have linked to, because of the reasons that I gave. I am going to download it and give it a try.

Thanks :)

I have tried the 0.4.8 livecd on this laptop and it failed again, but it did not BSOD like the 0.4.7.2.

I booted the 0.4.7.2 into the desktop, then plugged in a usb mouse and it worked, this with a generic desktop computer. So it all seems to depend on the hardware, if it boots or does not.

I have never tried an hybridcd, but i think (but not sure) that you can install with it. I would try the bootcd.

OK, I tried the boot CD with this file : bootusb-ReactOS-0.4.8-RC0-vgal
Unfortunately, I get a black screen once the drivers are loaded and nothing else happens :(
Might as well try the hybrid CD : hybridcd-ReactOS-0.4.8-RC0-vgal.iso.7z

[edit] just tried the hybrid version, but useless : the iso just contains all the different live versions as well as the boot version ; testing the boot version on this CD gives me the same result as with the above boot CD. Too bad ! :?

I already tested a previous version of the live CD in VGA mode and it works. Now I'm only interested in having a boot CD.
