during the development of the 1st-stage-GUI-setup I experienced some problems
with physical drive detection with reactos api (because it's fairly
incomplete - it works under windows). To continue the development and to
bring more benefits I want to make following suggestion. Sooner or later we
need a drive/volume/partition management tool, so i will continue with this
basing on the usetup code and replaced later by working reactos api calls.
So we can use this tool to determine the current harddisk(s) layout(s),
create/delete partitions, format with different file systems and
show/install/configure the current boot loader. Later I can use this
functions to handle the drives during installation process in a similiar way.
What do you think about this plan?
