Re: ReactOS on Toshiba A135-S4527

USB got a lot more stable a few weeks ago, it just isn't yet in 0.4.12.

I also advice not to use acpi-hal as the pnp for it is completely bonkers

Re: We urgently need a beta

I test ReactOS everytime i struggled with microsofts OS and Hardware upgrade-madness. I do have tens of bugs in jira, but currently I don't have the time anymore for testing and my bugs get tagged as "won't fix". I once really tried f.e. to fix the acpi problem and after 3 days .... gave up! And got...

On my network drive there is the output**** folder with - reactos.inf - reactos.cab Place them into the R: (for R eactos) partition (multiboot config) ...

Re: Reactos with dual boot system

I have a triple boot configuration on most of my machines with: 1- Reactos 2- XP 3- Win7 The most important thing is to make sure that each OS install its loader on its own partition and does not infer into the partition of another OS. And worse is that win7 won't hibernate if its loader is not on t...

Re: System startup displayed on a terminal window

We have the option to display the debug info on the screen, often used when a serial port is not available. But this debug stream is very verbose and detailed. But I conclude that some basic startup info would be nice, instead of the boot logo. ReactOS is as of yet primarily targeted at prof's and n...

Re: DynamoRIO: Hardware Translation Layer like emulating SSE

I was able to successfully run everest while emulating a lower cpu model. In this example it was a Pentium2 that got emulated on a Athlon XP. I tested this on Windows XP. But when I commanded it to emulate a higher model, one that does support the SSE2 command, the whole system crashed. I'm not yet ...

Debugging via LAN

As nowadays nearly no machine has a real com port anymore, we need an alternative, especially for debugging the video drivers as the option to send it to screen obviously is not possible. I thought about the linux way: we could dial in via a TCP socket, For this the network would have to be running ...

Re: Offline update of installed system

Just thought of another option: mounting the iso file (I use pismo file mount) and update the system with reactos.exe. Sadly the 'update' option is not implemented yet.

Offline update of installed system

Until today I always made the tests via bootcd. But as all my machines have a multiboot config and offers access to the reactos partition from within windows XP/7 I thought about to just copy over the (new) files from my build pc via network. This would spare me the hassle to delete/write/running-th...

Unicorn permits to run any code for any CPU on any OS I found this very interesting OS/Emulator project when searching for ways to workaround the dreaded "No SSE2-capable CPU" problem (Firefox etc.) I first tried to find out if there's any way to emulate the SSE2 instruction set for CPUs that only h...
