Failed to load RAM disk file bootcd.iso

Post by Kidplayer_666 » Wed Oct 02, 2019 8:55 am

I was trying to install react os on my computer, followed the ram boot instructions and everything worked fine until I tried to select install react os. I downloaded the right iso (the one to install react os) and checked my procedures and nothing seemed to be wrong except for the missing file

Did you remember to rename your ISO to "bootcd.iso" as pointed out in the instructions here:
At this point, the USB drive is fully prepared to RAM boot your ReactOS ISO image, just copy it there (and remember to rename it as specified in freeldr.ini)

So I should only let in the usb thumb the freeldr.ini and the iso or should I let all the files plus the iso?

Based on my reading of the wiki page, there is likely to be at least two other files there, depending on whether you are creating the USB from Windows or Linux.

https://reactos.org/wiki/User:Illen/RAM_Boot

But, the example they give of the freeldr.ini has this line:

Code: Select all

Options=/RDPATH=bootcd.iso
So either change that line to the name of the ISO file, or change the name of the ISO file to bootcd.iso to match.

Unfortunately the react os does not detect my hardware anyway

Thanks, I got to the part where I the os tries to detect the devices but it failed. Thanks again for your support, now it’ll try the daily release in hope that it supports my hardware

Wait, do I need Ethernet for the install?

Nope ^^

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