Cant install Reactos on a computer

Post by OnkelZorn » Mon Aug 23, 2010 7:49 pm

Hello Support , hello Comunity,

I have installed the latest version of Reactos on my Virtual PC 2007 from Microsoft.
This has so far everything worked out quite well.
Of course, a virtual machine is not like a real computer.
The speed is really not so good.
The cursor moves in slow motion.
I would like to test under real conditions ReactOS on a computer.
With the installation CD I have restarted the computer.
At first, everything looks pretty good.
It seems to load important files, then the screen suddenly goes black.
The drive stops working and a calm returns, even from the hard disk itself does nothing more.

In the chat was advised to edit the ISO file.
So I deleted the uniata.sys.
And I have renamed the atapi.sys to uniata.sys.
I saved the ISO file and burned it on a CD.
But exactly the same happened after restarting the computer.
First, data is loaded, then the screen goes black again.
There's nothing more.

Has anyone an idea what I could try yet?

Best wishes, Onkel Zorn

There is a known bug 5145. CD-ROM must be set to MASTER to install ReactOS on real hw.

I have to say, if you got ReactOS working in Virtual PC, I'm impressed. I can't recall ReactOS working in Virtual PC in quite some time.

Unless that's been fixed without my knowing it. :P

0.4.0 is not a valid/real version.
So there are 2 possibilities, our latest release is 0.3.11 or a daily revision :)
Can you post the link you used to download the ReactOS version you downloaded?

When I start the CD is the welcome window.
And bottom left is a version number.
For me there is 0.4.0.
I have participated in the screen shot also changes nothing.
Unfortunately, I find that the page no longer where I have downloaded.
It was to see a selection window where you could choose the version.
As an example, figures were available from 4060-4400.
I get the latest from this versions.

As you can see,downloads from www.reactos.org/getbuilds are named as bootcd-XXXX-dbg /livecd-xxxxx-dbg..etc.
The revision number is the XXXXX numbers which appears in the file name.
To install ReactOS in Virtual Machine or Real Hardware, you should use the bootcd--xxxx files (debug or release).
Retry with the newest bootcd-XXXXX file as many issues has been fixed(related to memory corruptions) :)
Thanks
