I tried to install Haiku hrev51532-x86_gcc2_hybrid-anyboot.iso to an old Fujitsu Siemens SCA LEO 400 Desktop computer. The computer's processor is Intel Celeron and BIOS is Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG with the EnergyStar logo. The display of the desktop computer is LG's Flatron L1930SQ LCD.
I was able to boot this computer from the CD-ROM Drive, but the display was all the time showing me a 46.4kHz / 87Hz mode and "OUT OF RANGE" message. I tested this also with the hrev35928-x86_gcc2_hybrid-anyboot.img image and the behavior was the same.
Then I changed display to a very old HP L1520 display and I was able to boot Haiku hrev51532-x86_gcc2_hybrid-anyboot with two problems: Desktop was too large for the display (mode) and I got all the time an error message "PLEASE SETUP PC AT 1024X768 60HZ" at the topmost window.
After installation I started Haiku from the hard drive of the Fujitsu Siemens computer and all was the same with those two errors when I used the old HP display. Then I changed back to the LG Flatron display and got at first the same 46.4kHz / 87Hz message, but with the "POWER SAVING MODE" text. The display turned then black and after some seconds message changed to the previously shown "OUT OF RANGE" message.
Windows and Ubuntu can handle this OUT OF RANGE mode but Haiku cannot do it.
