#15035 new bug

Black screen when trying to boot on a Surface Book (1st gen)

Reported by: warpdesign2 Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: - General Version: R1/Development
Keywords: surface, black screen, nvidia, intel Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86-64


I downloaded one of the most daily build images, flashed it on an (USB2) stick and attempted to boot on the machine.

After the last icon of the boot process gets lit, the screen goes black and nothing happens.

The numlock key appears to work so Haiku may be alive.

The Surface Book has two GPUs: Intel one and an Nvidia one.

Using the "fail safe" graphics option in the boot menu fixes the black screen problem.

Please do the following:

1) Boot without the option, into a black screen.

2) Use power button to trigger a normal shutdown (if you can.)

3) Boot with the option, and then grab the "syslog" and "syslog.old".
