Black screen after "Loading boot drivers..."

Post by Axel7 » Sat Nov 25, 2017 11:53 am

Hi, (i'm french, sorry for my bad english)
I have a black screen after this message "Loading boot drivers...", i can't install ReactOS on my PC. I use a bootable USB with Rufus. I have tried "Nightly builds", but i have black screen again.
I use ReactOS 0.4.6.b and ReactOS Nightly Builds 0.4.8
Thank you for helping me. :)


PC specs:
RAM: 1,5GB
CPU: Intel Celeron D 3.07Ghz
HDD: 160GB
GPU: SIS 661FX

Have a read of this: https://reactos.org/wiki/Installing_ReactOS

This will guide you through an installation and enlighten you to some limitations, USB &c

If you feel you have a real bug then look here: https://reactos.org/wiki/File_Bugs

If your PC could ever have run XP then it probably is a suitable target to run ReactOS, however it may be best to run ReactOS in a virtual environment unitl it is more mature for that real ReactOS experience.

Hi,
Thank you, i can't use USB stick for the installation ?
The PC can run all versions of Windows (98/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7/8.1/10), i have a multiboot (XP/7/8.1).
But i don't like VM, it's slow.

Read the bit about USB in the installation guide and be aware that ReactOS is under development now, USB support is being built into ReactOS.

If you want to install ReactOS to see it in operation, use a VM.

If you want to experiment with installing ReactOS on your machine, then by all means go ahead but lower your expectations until ReactOS is ready for your system. Follow those instructions!
