On 3rd stage = "everyday bootup" the time between last textmode output and
arising of the gui takes a lot of time.

Yes, generally that's true. Bugs should be fixed.

But as far as I understand the source code any other third party driver could
be loaded the same way. (Am I wrong ?)

occurs I would prefer that ReactOS does activate VGA (when it works again one
day ..) or VBE driver in minimum resolution - instead of just a BLACK SCREEN.

Another possibility would be to fall back to text mode. And then giving out
text messages about the occured error. ReactOS does work without GUI - why
should it stop here ?
