Installing ReactOS on Toshiba Satellite

Post by rmoliva »

I downloaded ReactOS 0.3 RC 1 and blew away my Windows 98 installation.

After burning the iso image I inserted CD in laptop drive and started. It appears to load, and then just hangs. Using the same CD I insert that into a desktop and I can load ReactOS.

Since ReactOS did not load on the laptop no logs are created. Anyone out there have an idea how to load ReactOS on Toshiba Laptops?

My laptop is an old Toshiba Satellite 4030 CDT, Celeron Processor, and 200MB of RAM, 4GB Hdd.

Any suggestions welcome!!!

We're discussing this problem in in the German part of this forum, too. ReactOS doesn't boot on most of laptops :(

Dou you see a message like "No APM BIOS found" or a blue screen?

ReactOS cannot be used with SATA hard disks, that's an usual problem with new laptops/notebooks of the latest generation.´
If the laptop does have an internal IDE hdd, it should work fine.
