ReactOS is failing to boot..... any suggestions?

Post by 00010 »

Hello I am 00010. you may know me from infinitemac.com, but all that aside I just wanted to know if anyone could suggest how I should go about solving the problem I am experiencing.

ReactOS will not boot past the "Loading setup Files Screen" and stops at the ex2.sys file and the screen goes blank, Also tried on my AMD desktop and same thing.
I burned the ISO image to a mini CD-R.

Th machine are as follows: Toshiba L305 2.20Ghz Intel Celeron Processor, Intel GMAx4500 Grahics card, 160GB SATA-2 Drive.

I was thinking it might be my install media, (Mini-CD-R ? )


Also as a side note I am also having trouble getting ReactOS installed on my XBOX, I have the modified Cromwell Bios that supports the ReactOS but it says it cannot find the freldr.inin or it is corrupt, but the image I used installed successfully in VirtualBox, wich is also the same image I used on my computers.

Hiya

XBOX port is bit-rot as no one really kept it up with trunk for long time. As for your problem, it seems that your PC doesn't have a serial port we would need for debugging. Other option is to rebuild ROS, with /DEBUGPORT=SCREEN (boot/bootdata/txtsetup.sif in [SetupData] section instead of /DEBUGPORT=COM1

This way we might be able to see the crash.

Or you modify freeledr.ini on the HDD with the help of a 2nd pc, that way theres no need for a rebuild.

For the XBox Port: Where did u save the ROS Files?
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Ok, so is there a strait forward suggestion I can try?


Also if anyone could point me to the last version of ReactOS that booted at all on the xbox, that would be great.

you cant install it. You have to use a "make install" package on E: on the xbox with replaced HAL, bootvid and VBEMP
