I guess you mean the "Press F6 for SCSI/RAID driver disks" message
What I was asking is: is the infrastructure there for installing on
SCSI? From your message I can conclude:
YES, IF the driver is integrated into the ReactOS disk.
The VMware driver I pointed to is opensource (GPL), so you could add it
to ReactOS as a basic driver,
so you can demonstrate that ReactOS can install on SCSI harddisk. And it
makes testing and/or using ReactOS in VMware a lot easier.
The trick question: is it harmful if this driver gets loaded but there's
no hardware for it present?
Does the driver auto-fail without causing any BSOD/hangups, and will
thanks for the reply, though I think out-of-the-box support for several
emulators and their hardware is important to demonstrate ReactOS to a
("hey, this operating system you're showing to me has networking and
1024x768-32bit advanced video driver support! wow, I'm impressed!")
I didn't know drivers were at NT4 level, thought ReactOS required
good luck with the project.
