It could be a whole range of things.
Without having your hardware spec and debug output, it’s impossible to tell.
If you just want to test it, it’s better to run it in a virtual machine.
If you’re insistent on running it on hardware, then you’ll need to start by supplying your hardware details.
If that doesn’t show any obvious problems (e.g. SATA, NTFS, etc) then you will need to grab debug output via a null cable modem http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/Debugging#Real_computer:_Physical_serial_cable

Subject: [ros-dev] Problems installing REACTOS
Having downloaded the software (I was amazed it was less than 40MB), I wrote the ISO on a CD and started the installation.
0.3.7 failed to install completely, stopping dead just after loading the initial files.
I downloaded the 0.3.6 and tried again. This time, I was able to install the first portion (copying the textmode installation to the hard disk and modifying the MBR).
On restart, A GUI window flashed then a blue screen with a single line about the Build, and that was the end.
What am I doing wrong?
I would appreciate any help. I really want to test drive this software.
