ReactOS GSoC: booting from Btrfs
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-06-06 21:17:27

ReactOS has unveiled its Google Summer of Code project, undertaken by Victor Perevertki.

My project is both simple and complicated. I want to add to ReactOS an option to install on and boot from BTRFS partitions. There are a few little things left to implement this:

  • BTRFS support in bootloader.
  • Fixes in cache controller and memory manager in order to boot with WinBtrfs driver. It is getting better every week, but right now used only with fastfat driver for FAT32.

My primary goal for this internship is implement BTRFS support in FreeLdr - our bootloader.

Another great GSoC project to keep an eye on.
