You do know that a website (that you linked) is not an image?

What hypervisor are you using? What settings?

Please also mention which language you used to install ReactOS, and whether or not you tried to change the keyboard layout at some point.

This vaguely ressembles the problem described at https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-15837 .

Any alternative method to see debugging info in the screen? "LiveCD (screen)" or "ReactOS (screen)" does not shows that info only when booting, not in Desktop environment.... or am I wrong? :?

Screen debugging will switch back to the debug log in case of a crash. So yes, it would be useless in this case -- but you don't need screen debugging in a VM; all the common hypervisors support serial ports.

This video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ne88Is2cymQ

Aside from the fact that they are using VBox and not VMware Workstation, this wouldn't be the way that I would recommend to set up a ROS VM. They use the "Other 64 bit" template. I'd recommend to use the "Windows Server 2003" template.

You didn't mention the settings that you used for the VM hardware. Could you at least mention the template you used? Windows XP? Server 2003? Something else?

I used the settings: FreeBSD as a template like on the video, and that error came just when I installed the system the first time, on the second time it worked but my job as a tester is to report any problem encountered, even a small one, or just happened once, so I guess my problem is when booting after the partition making of the OS installation

Yep, and testing is important! That said, posting a screenshot without much more detail is not all that helpful to the devs in terms of figuring out what went wrong and therefore how to fix it. It's best to be as specific and verbose as possible when reporting an issue.

Even now, after several posts asking for more information you've failed to provide many solid details. From what I've gathered, you installed ROS on VMware Workstation using a FreeBSD template. After the second stage of the install, for some reason, you got this popup.

I don't have VMware Workstation installed on my PC, so I don't know what virtual hardware it's using with the FreeBSD template (disk controller, NIC, how much RAM, etc). That would be useful information. Also, what version of VMware Workstation, what's your host OS, what ISO did you download?

IMO, in the 21st century there is no excuse for writing poor bug reports whether the report is formal (e.g., a JIRA report) or informal (e.g., a post in the ReactOS Support forum).
