      Description

      When using the dd command on arch bang linux causes a registry corruption error when booting after setting up install (setting hostname and admin password).

       ReactOS version tested: 0.4.13 downloaded from front page.

       

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Download archbang linux from [https://sourceforge.net/projects/archbang/|https://sourceforge.net/projects/archbang/.]
      2. Extract the archive and write the image to a usb drive. I used gnome-disks from the gnome-disks-utility package
      3. Reboot, and boot from the usb drive archbang was written to.
      4. Select the first option from the boot selection menu.
      5. Open a terminal window by typing [logokey]+t or clicking on the icon on the pannel.
      6. Using nano, edit /etc/pacman.d/mirrorslist and uncomment a set of mirrors for your country (I am in the United States).
      7. Save and close the file using ctl+x Y [enter]
      8. Connect your system to the internet (if not done already) using an ethernet cable.
      9. Run sudo pacman -Sy
      10. Install firefox by running sudo pacman -S firefox
      11. Launch firefox
      12. Visit reactos.org , go to downloads, and download 0.4.13.
      13. Extract the zip file by running unzip (filename) in your downloads directory.
      14. Use dd to write the iso to your harddrive. For example sudo dd IF=Reactos.iso OF=/dev/sda. You can find your drive in gparted launchef using the gparted command.
      15. Reboot to your harddrive and install like normal. During install, I create two more partitions, and select the first one I created to install ReactOS to. I select fat32 (quick format) for both.
      16. Reboot and complete setup like normal. Let ReactOS reboot itself. You should find a BSOD with an error code for corrupt registry.
