      Description

      I don't know if there is a minimum requirement for the video buffer but this behaviour might qualify as a bug if it's supposed to behave like Windows server 2003 or Windows XP.

      I'm using

      ReactOS 0.4.9 (Build 20180712-0.4.9-release-0-ga920a96) (Commit a920a9672c5768c66714789a52af0a8255cb5161)

      To test the minimum amount of video ram needed to boot ReactOS I installed under

      VirtualBox and kept lowering the video ram until It wouldn't load.

      Anything below 5 MB in VirtualBox will cause ReactOS to BSoD

      Attached is a screen cap.
