How to install ReactOS from RAM disk (useful for modern hardware testing)

Post by Illen » Mon Mar 11, 2019 1:28 am

This method allows ReactOS installation through entirely unsupported interfaces (eg. USB ports wired to xHCI controllers), which means you can (in theory) install ReactOS even on most recent notebook, as long as you have a SATA drive in it. I hope some of you will find it helpful.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.
