Installing ReactOS is not working? Need help. (I am New)

Post by ArchitS »

Hi,
I have been using ubuntu and other popular distros for few months but have been a Mac and Windows 10 user most of my life. I recently came over ReactOS and i am interested on this. I installed the image from ReactOS's website and flashed it to my 32 GB usb drive using balena eitcher. When my USB was ready, i went to my boot menu in my laptop (Asus Vivobook) and it clicked on my "done"
bootable usb drive, but sadly it did not work as no matter how many times i clicked on it, it just did not continue to boot. I also tried using rufus to flash but encountered the same issue. Let me know what can be done.

It's a bit trickier than you expected: https://reactos.org/wiki/Installing_Rea ... B-RAM_boot Here you can find the howto for a USB bootable ROS.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - ISO remaster.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.
