Yes install within windows is not recommended.
But I want something like Winnt.exe the one to
startup from a dos partition.
not within windows.
the biggest reason is to this.
You don´t have to burn an CD every time you are going to install ReactOS.
Only put it on a second partition and make that bootable then format the primary partition and install.


But then a second reason for me is that one of my computer don´t have an CD drive.
or it has an external CD drive.
but that will not work properly.
So I can´t install React on that Computer.

Someone who is better with NASM could write a small 16 bit loader for freeldr.sys as *.COM app.

That would be great.
I hope someone can do it.
It can´t be that hard or is it.
I believe more than only me can have some use for it.

The bootsector code could give hints.
I am not good in NASM programming,but they need to use the DOS file handle API.
Did someone here use loadlin?

I have read that someone is making an installer for ROS.
How is that going.
and is it going to be able to install it from an HDD.
