When I found a problem with the cd drive in rev 46206, I installed release 0.3.11 to make sure that the cd drive worked, and it did, so there is no problem with the drive. If the drive has no disc in it, then I can open explorer and view the contents of the hard drive. It will be very strange if the...

Re: A problem with FreeLoader on my laptop

Yes vicmarcal, it would appear to be the same bug, as he gets the same message of:

Error opening freeldr.ini or file not found.
You need to re-install FreeLoader.
Press any key

I will have to try to get a debug log to compare.

Re: Problems listing the contents of the Program Files folder

The bug report is with respect to the first paragraph of my post, the other issues were found later after I had started the computer a couple of times. IRFANVIE is an old copy that works (the newer versions fail, reporting missing dll(s)). But even this old version does not work correctly. I re-size...

Re: ReactOS can't boot

I have a 2 year old computer that I cannot install Reactos on.

I would suggest trying it on an older computer if you have one.

I think the problem is with the newer hard drives.
