Boot failure / no ChangeLog available
by Johannes on Tue 2nd Sep 2003 07:32 UTC

For the first time, ReactOS now fails to boot on my box. The boot process hangs when it says "loading cdrom.sys".

If anyone of the ReactOS guys is reading this: Have there been any significant changes concerning the CD-ROM driver?

Since I managed to boot ReactOS on my girlfriend's box, I can say that the most visible change is that first steps towards a GUI have been taken: ReactOS now displays a boot logo and you will find some graphical test apps, including one multiwindow test where you can move around, resize or close individual windows and their child windows.

Certainly, using ReactOS for any serious purpose still doesn't make sense. But it looks like the projekt is steadyly gaining momentum.

Keep going!

I was planning to post the announcement to later (since our host's DNS was down). Anyway.. a screenshot of Solitaire running on ROS is now available on our site

Very good to see something going on in this area, imo.

btw: Which version of solitaire is this? =)

Won't work on Boschs: "Cannot load NLS Files"
by Leo on Tue 2nd Sep 2003 18:57 UTC


I downloaded the ISO and tried to install it using Boschs...

After the installation, and a reboot, the FreeLoader appears: When I choose to boot NewOS (Debug version or not), it stops with the error "Cannot load the NLS files !"

What's wrong ?
