#12254 assigned bug

No HAIKU boot screen on Intel BX440 with Matrox G400

Reported by: Alexco Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: System/Boot Loader Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: x86


Installed Haiku parallel to BeOS R5 on my Dual Celeron Abit BP6 box with Matrox G400 AGP VGA card. Selecting Haiku from Be's boot manager results in "black" screen (TFT even goes into standby due to no signal) during entire boot. Desktop is then displayed correctly again. This does not happen if I exchange the MGA card with a Voodoo4 PCI card.

I did some testing with hrev51259 x86_gcc2. The issue still remains but if I configure a different screen resolution of my desktop (e.g. 1152x864x32, 75Hz),Haiku boots up nicely with logo in 1024x768x32 (yes, boot loader option still says "default resolution").
