There is a stage for ReactOS installation that goes like this:
"Setup is installing the boot loader"
Then four options exist:
"Install bootloader on the harddisk (MBR and VBR)"
"Install bootloader on the harddisk (VBR) only)"
"Install bootloader on a floppy disc."
"Skip install bootloader."
I have two suggestions to make; not sure if you guys want to have that but I'll make the sugegstions anyway.
First, the smaller suggestion:
- My laptop does not have any floppy drive, so perhaps the option "install bootloader on a floppy disk" should be disabled for such devices. Not sure if there is a trivial check to find out whether a floppy disc exists, but to me personally it is useless in both ways. I don't use floppy discs since a long time, but I do not even HAVE any floppy disks nor floppies to make use of that. I use everything via external HDDs, USB sticks and DVD discs.
Anyway, the second, more important suggestion:
- I am not entirely sure what the differences are between the first two options (MBR and BR yes/no), so I would appreciate a HELP option during installation. Right now only two keys are notified here, ENTER for Continue and F3 for QUIT. I suggest something like F10 to also show some help, perhaps as a "pop-up" or something like that, that briefly, in one or two sentences, explains to the user what the differences are between the first two options there. Since I do not really know, I just selected the first option and continued with the installation; no real clue if this is right or wrong.
Thanks for reading!
