I tried the same application. It boots OK here from the USB Flash, so I think the ticket is invalid.

It looks like you didn't write the image to the very start of the device. You have to write it to the raw device, overwriting the MBR and not a partition on the device. You could also provide the command you used to verify that.

Heh, oki, but how I can overwriting the MBR on USB Flash. I used unetbootin for windows on create Ubuntu USB and this work great but when I used flashnul or dd and create Haiku USB, BIOS dosen't see system on USB. And which command I can to verify that?

There's a guide somewhere on Please search for it and use it. You just dd to the raw device /dev/sdc instead of /dev/sdc1 or "Partition0" in Windows.

Do you understand, I use standard command from dd or flashnul to create Haiku USB a that not working. ( ) And it is such persons more.

I apologize Michael, this my fault, because I know this mistake three month and I am frustrated now. I tested precisely again now and you are right, error was in /dev/sdc1, it should be /dev/sdc - tested with dd. Mistake so it is in flashnul, and what it for this goes Haiku On A Stick, which mark bad USB flash. Ticket can be closed. Sorry for mistake, but stays unclear why flashnul at persons' part create correctly image(working) and at persons' part incorrectly.

No worries. The thing is that up to that point, everything is done by your BIOS and, if used, your bootmanager. There's no Haiku code run at all up to that point. So it cannot be a Haiku bug, but must be a problem with the configuration.
