Known issues

1. VESA Driver accepts only VESA 2.0 compatible adapters.

2. Some INF files have both Windows 2000 and XP sections, with separate drivers for both. When trying to install Win2k driver version, Reactos is being detected as XP, thus XP driver is attempted to be installed, even though its driver file may be missing in Win2k driver directory. As Reactos doesnt fail when copying nonexistant file, successful installation is reported, alas driver file is not copied to system32\driver directory. This will cause "Successful install, please restart" window to appear at every boot.

3. VGA driver, if chosen is known to fallback to VESA at 3rd stage. See bug 4192
