I have been watching ROS for over a year and I am pleased with the development. I decided to try both a LiveCD and a full install on a test pc. I cannot get either to work. They just freeze upon loading.
Hardware:
Intel Atom D945GCLF2D
1 GB DDR 2 Crucial
Intel onboard Graphics
Realtek Sound and Ethernet
Crucial 64 GB SSD

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Yes:
Read the post above yours, Post by middings » Thu Jun 08, 2017 3:15 am.
Post more information, ie. what revision/version number have you been trying, where in the process of loading did it freeze.
Get an older computer to do your testing with.
You can keep your Virtual Machines - I test in real hardware!
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
A layman's guide - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - complementary scripts.

Double post - do NOT do this.

Also read the words above, specifically, "This is not a topic for support requests. This topic is about how to gather the information necessary for making a useful support request. Go read the first post in this topic. Then start a new topic in the Support forum and post your support request in your new topic."

If you really want help here you should not start by breaking forum rules. Not a way to start making friends.

BootCD: ReactOS-0.4.8-iso

Model: HP G62-219wm
CPU: Intel Pentium T4500 2.3GHz
Memory: 8 GB DDR3
Storage: 320 GB SATA
Optical Drive: LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support
Graphics Card: Intel GMA 4500M

Seemed to install ok, just used all of the default selections. When it got to the end it told me to remove the CD and hit ENTER to reboot.
Now it gets as far as the HP boot screen (HP logo) and STOPS. No error messages. Can't even use the ESC key to get into the boot options.
CTRL-ALT-DEL will work, but it just reboots back to the HP logo. Did ReactOS just brick the laptop??? :shock:
