ReactOS can't boot

Post by naums » Sun Feb 21, 2010 9:24 pm

At first: I like the idea of a free Windows, but there might be a better way (at least I think so) when you would use the existing Linux Kernel and create a Windows out of that... (I don't know if this is possible).

I tested ReactOS in a virtual Box under Ubuntu and it was not able to install the ethernet controller. So I used Virtual PC under Windows 7 and there was the problem that the cursor had not moved smoothly. So I decided to try the LiveCD on my hardware. But the LiveCD did not even boot properly. It had read hal.dll and all the other components, which are loaded on the black background, but the first uniata.ini (or so) on the colorful background is not been loaded... Nothing happened then....

So I tried to install ReactOS... But after the blue Screen "ReactOS is loading files" there is just a blank black screen, nothing happened, and the CD stopped turning. What do I wrong? I wanna have reactOS as third OS on my HD. Am I able to download an older version of ReactOS and try out this?

But this doesn't have anything to do with my problem, or with Windows... Ubuntu for example is also based on the Linux Kernel...

WINE is your answer, or LUK.

I have a 2 year old computer that I cannot install Reactos on.

I would suggest trying it on an older computer if you have one.

I think the problem is with the newer hard drives.

SATA works only in IDE Mode, if you mean that.

USB does not work.

Dual Core does not really work, too.

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

The computer that I refer to above has an AMD dual core processor, with a s-ata hard drive.

To be more exact: SATA works, some SATA controllers have some problems with UNIATA and the need to be in IDE mode to work, some might not work not even in IDE mode.
Dual Core processors work but using only one core.

okay... I have a quad2Core... I think a SATA HD. okay... In some weeks I might have an older PC, but ... I don't really know whether the freakin' HD will work properly... that thing is old already... Does a Pentium III 800Mhz and 128 MB RAM work?

It will work like a charm :).
Also ReactOS can work in a Pentium 166mhz with 64Mb

okay... thanks to all of you. But I have one question... On the Bootscreen (that looks like Windows NT) can be read, (c) 1996-2009. Do they really develop that long period of time? If yes, when do the developer plan to get ready with ReactOS?
