      Description

      There are installed Ubuntu(first partition-active) and Windows XP(second partition-active) on first hdd. In BIOS the boot devices are only HDD0. Also there is second hdd with Windows XP(i dont use it). While installing ReactOS 44576-dbg from trunk the first stage of installation was complete. I added to grub
      title ReactOS
      root (hd0,3)
      kernel /freeldr.sys

      but appeared thit error:

      ,bss=0xf2b8Starting up...
      Error opening freeldr.ini or file not found.
      You need to re-install Freeloader.
      Press any key

      "AFTER PRESSING ENTER"
      Error initializing .ini file
      Press any key

      "AFTER PRESSING ENTER"
      – if the second hdd is connected the mashine loads Windows XP from second hdd
      – If the second hdd is not connected the mashine writes:
      DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.

      After booting from Windows XP and replacing freeloader.sys to freeloader.sys from ReactOS 0.3.10, ReactOS was loaded and continued installing. After he was installed it also was loaded.

      The problem is in freeloder.sys in reactos r44576.
