installing on this hdd

Post by enjuto_mojamuto » Fri Jul 03, 2009 5:19 pm

hi, id like to install on the second hdd of this image

but i cant get rid of the very first partition on disk 2, its a eisa hpfs partition, and no matter what i try it always pops up again, usually ruining the following partitions, i can recover them easily with the proper sw; im wondering if is it feasible to install reactos on this partition or not.
thanks

have you tried to:

disconnect first harddisk

delete all partition ( if you can ) on second disk (now the first ) using a XP CD
create only the 7-8 gbyte partition for ReactoS.. ( format it using fat32 if you want )

insert ReactOS CD ( with only 2nd hd connected )... reformat the 7-8 gbyte partition.. and try installation.
if everything works.. reconnect 1st harddisk. and change Xp BOOT.ini ( o bcd on Vista ) and add the ReactOS entry. ( or just select temporary startup device using f8 or f11 key when bios screen appears )

ive managed to get rid of the eisa partition using diskpart, dont know if it will appear again tho.
ive formatted the very first partition on the second hdd as fat32 and ive disconnected the first hdd and tried again, but it still freezes on the same spot.

enjuto_mojamuto:

Which HDD are you using? SATA or IDE?which version of ReactOS are you using?
If you are using SATA, which controller are you using?You can see the Controller in:
Control Panel->Hardware Manager->ATA/ATAPI IDE controller->Storage controller: Ultra ATA Intel(R)ICH8M-2850
