More informations about ReactOS can be found here along with some screenshots.
At this moment the goal is to demonstrate how to automate the process of extracting all files from the ISO that is automatically downloaded onto a folder, apply scripts to tweak user settings and add programs - followed by the recompilation of this folder into ISO format again.
ReactOS_ScriptProject.zip 358.63KB 1128 downloads version 002
The resulting ISO is not tweaked yet, but should be a good starting ground to make improvements or just to try out other options. I really like the idea of using a free operative system and perhaps this way more people can get to know and use it..
How to install?
- If you're using Winbuilder 052 or smaller, follow the minimum requirements
- Download the above file and extract all contents as a sub folder on the Projects folder inside WinBuilder
- Add the project on winbuilder - how to..
- Press the run button
If you're using WinBuilder 052 you'll need to add cdmake inside your Tools folder on winbuilder - download link
As an alternative you don't need to use cdmake and can always use mkisofs to produce your ISO, just place it inside the ReactOS\Create folder and remove or disable "CDMake.Script"
MkISOfs.zip 6.05KB 655 downloads
It's also adviced to use WinBuilder 053 beta 4, otherwise it will still work but you won't see the download progress..
Hope you have fun and enjoy this OS..
