#14474 new bug

PANIC: get_boot_partitions_failed!

Reported by: xray72 Owned by: nobody

Platform: All


I have tried to install Haiku 64 with anyboot (hrev52325-x86_64-anyboot) ISO burned to a USB (using Etcher).

I have a kernel panic at boot loading step:

PANIC: get_boot_partitions_failed!
Welcome to Kernel Debugging Land...
Thread 26 "main2" running on CPU 10
stack trace for thread 26 "main2"
  kernel stack: 0xffffffff81286000 to 0xffffffff8128b000

I tried to unplug as much USB device as I could, all harddrive (I've got 4 in this high tower system, plus a CDROM) and this does not change anything. If I try to activate any boot option in Haiku boot loader then I cannot select the boot device anymore (set to none) and I cannot boot. Changing BIOS options on USB did not change anything.

I have tried to boot from the CDROM and I get exactly the same message.

comment:2 by waddlesplash, 22 months ago

That message is useless without a syslog accompanying it, as it just means the bootloader couldn't find any partitions to boot from.

Try reading the Bootloader documentation as to how to extract syslogs: -- or if all that fails, you can type syslog at that kernel panic prompt and take pictures of the output one screen at a time.

Most likely it's due to some problem in the XHCI (USB3) driver though, which would make this a duplicate of some of those tickets. IIRC kallisti5 said that he saw this on an XHCI system he has. Although, if the same thing happens when booting from CD, perhaps your image burner is at fault...?

Thanks for the tip, and sorry, I read that too quickly. You'll find the syslog attached (but only with USB boot because when I boot from CDROM my (USB) Keyboard is not working at all.

Looks like the memory got corrupted and the file ends before the actual output does, which isn't very useful...

Doing my best, this one looks better.

comment:6 by xray72, 22 months ago

Ok, I managed to boot. I removed all drives (I had forgotten one which is hidden) and I changed SATA settings from RAID to AHCI in the BIOS.

comment:7 by xray72, 22 months ago

I plugged back one drive and it still boots so it seems it was this SATA RAID setting (which does not disturb neither Windows 10 nor Ubuntu Linux 16.04).
