A suggestion, is to have installer application unmount the installation media after the install is complete, and prompt the user to remove the USB stick or CD before rebooting the system.

Ideally we may want to avoid a kdl in this situation as from the end user perspective a kdl is *really* bad. This comes with data loss, but a notification or BAlert may be better?

Placing in alpha5 bucket with this in mind.

Also I am just a observer here but, it seems with the new nightly build (hrev47469) this problem is not appear. Therefore my suggestion is try it again, please.

Wrote hrev47844 to flash drive from within a4.1. First install boot resulted in KDL. Second attempt resulted in successful installation to hard drive, with KDL on restart. Third boot was successful, until media server crashed. So, apparently it is not yet fixed. I also tried install from a CD using the CD iso image without any problems. This appears to be a anyboot/USB issue only.

Writing to a flash drive from A4 requires use of the new makebootable. Did you use that, or the A4 makebootable?

dd if=/boot/home/Downloads/dev/haiku-nightly-anyboot.image of=/dev/disk/usb/0/0/raw bs=1M

The USB drive is only being used as an installation medium to install to a hard drive partition. When I write the CD iso image or anyboot image to a CD I do not encounter any such issues.

The panic is a failure to write to one of the discs when unmounting it. Since this does not happen when running from a CD, I assume it is a failure to unmount the flash drive. Did you try a different flash drive to see if the issue is hardware specific?

Using hrev48565 x86_gcc2, I downloaded hrev48669 x86_gcc2 anyboot image and wrote it to a pair of flash drives from two different manufacturers. I wrote the image file to the flash drives using the following command:

dd if=/boot/home/haiku-nightly-anyboot.image of=/dev/disk/usb/0/0/raw bs=1M

After rebooting with the flash drive as the install medium and successfully installing to an empty partition, it KDL's as before (while shutting down for reboot). This is a different PC than what I was using previously, when the ticket was opened 1 year ago.

This ticket sounds a lot like earlier bug report #9449.
