FreeLoader fails to install on 0.3.11... Help?

Post by Gullible Jones »

I just cleared a Linux partition to install ReactOS 0.3.11, and discovered to my surprise on reboot that FreeLoader hadn't installed. Instead I was met with GRUB, which unsurprisingly failed to load anything.

Is this a bug, or is it intended behavior? If it's intended (to keep FreeLoader from overwriting GRUB), how can I force it to install?

Update: SOLVED, by writing syslinux's mbr.bin file to my hard drive to overwrite GRUB. Freeloader now works fine. :)

Unfortunately there are two issues: a) unless I use Safe Mode, ReactOS hangs on "installing devices", and b) worse, there seems to be absolutely no support whatsoever for either my mouse or my keyboard. So much for that.

Keep at it, guys! :D
