    The author managed not only to install the OS, but even to use the Wi-Fi module.

    Of course, this is only possible on experimental builds with an updated USB stack, the efforts of Vadim Galyant .

    Fans of the same virtualokuchki manual from Maiami will help install ReactOS in Hyper-V.

    Share your comments in the comments, see you soon atReactOS Hackfest !

    PS The plans for version 0.4.10 include support for installing out of the box on BTRFS, obtaining information about hardware via the SMBIOS interface, significant improvements in scaling and respecting the proportions of fonts and icons in various applications, as well as fixes to improve OS stability.
