...and CD-ROM is set to SLAVE. See bug 5145 in bugzilla.

This mobo has inbuilt SATA controller. Having the similar one (same chipset) i avoid this issue by setting CD to Master on IDE and using SATA hdd (the Sata is SIL3112 which works very nice on UNIATA).

Thanx for your answers.
I'm using usb cd-rom drive.
How could I forgot to post it before. Sorry.

So, it seems like I'm on blind way because my BIOS can not set usb drive as master. If any other bioses can.

Ok, I'll try to borrow IDE drive.

Thanx a lot.

Even if bios could, ROS is now incapable of using USB devices. Yes, you need IDE/SATA optical drive.

you could try to open the iso with a tool like ultraiso and go into the reactos subfolder. you will find atapi.sys and uniata.sys there. delete uniata and copy atapi to your desktop. rename it to uniata and move it back to thelocation of the previously removed uniata. save it and try it

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Its not UNIATA really, else it would die before language screen.
