Accessing floppy disk (A:) freezes screen, mouse, and keyboard



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Reopened
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Fix Version/s: None

    • Environment:

      HP Pavilion 7965 desktop PC, Pentium 4, 1.25 GB RAM. Floppy drive is A: and PATA hard drive is C: (configured as slave on IDE cable).


      I booted ReactOS 0.4-RC1 on my test PC with RosDbg communicating to a host PC via a null-modem serial cable attached to the COM1 port. When the test PC finished booting, I bugchecked the test PC with TAB-K. On my host PC I entered set condition * first always. Then I entered cont so the test PC would continue. I inserted a floppy disk in drive A. Then I started ReactOS Explorer. ReactOS Explorer tried to read the floppy. The drive access light came on then the screen, mouse, and keyboard froze. The drive access light remained on.

      I was able to capture a backtrace with the host PC. I then entered cont so the test PC would continue. What happens after that may be interesting but is not related to the bug I am reporting.

      A debug log that begins when the test PC's boot finished is attached.
