hd audio getting in the way of real hardware testing

Post by Zombiedeth » Wed Feb 20, 2019 5:56 pm

The hd audio driver included with ReactOS is really causing problems for doing testing on real hardware. It's not too bad if you only have hd audio integrated on the motherboard and can disable it in the bios but otherwise it pretty much guarantees a crash or bsod if you have hdmi or other devices that use the hd audio driver. I really think it would help ReactOS tremendously if this driver was not installed by default it's just not ready yet. Maybe it could be included in a optional folder on the ISO so people could still test it as needed.

I did have the same issue so I copied from Windows 10. If your pc has Nvidia Optimus, enable it in bios. If installing, have it off.

You're right, our hdaudbus.sys driver is a pain when installing on newer laptops, what I did is disabling it of the building of a new iso

What is your laptop? If it's a Dell, it is hell. From what I can tell, no Dell driver works. Also, from what I can tell, the trackpad won't work.

Haha Dell and hell rhyme. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Perhaps if instead of complaining and suggesting strange work-arounds, people actually filed good bug reports and worked with the devs to narrow down the problem (as in https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-14617), we wouldn't need to be having such discussions.

Anyone affected, please try with a8414f665b or later, and if you still encounter hdaudbus crashes, please file a ticket with a debug log and backtrace. Thanks.

The driver literally hard locks my computer including the new version. I will try to get a debug log but a backtrace seems impossible currently.
Please consider not including this driver in the 0.4.11 release or newer release builds until the issues with it are resolved.
