I recently tried to install ReactOS, and did so by:
- Downloading the .iso from SourceForge.
- Writing it to a USB drive using the "Make bootable USB stick" option on the Nemo file manager (for Linux). This created a 1.9GiB
iso9660partition with all the ReactOS files on it.
- Booting from the USB (I could only boot in BIOS compatibility mode). I get a Windows 2000-like loading screen that says:
Loading ReactOS setup...
Then, I get the black screen of death - no cursor and no disk activity. I tried several times (and waiting), but still got the same black screen of death.
I tried again, by making a blank
FAT32 partition and copying ll the files from the ISO onto it. This time, it wan't even detected as being bootable.
What can I do to install ReactOS?
I have an HP 10-e010nr laptop (HP 10 TS Notebook PC).
