#3441 closed bug

The zbeos never appears on my Screen (No colored Symbols) — at Initial Version

I can't boot Haiku but I think I don't do anything wrong during the Haiku installation.

How I tried to install Haiku:

  1. flashnul ([[BR]]
  2. From a beos based system. Copy to a Partition, makebootable and integrate in Bootman
  3. Using Virtualbox and Haiku. I configured virtualbox to have direct access to a physical HDD (Look in the Virtualbox manual point 9.9). Use "Installer", makbootable.

I tried 1 and 3 on an Intel Laptop and Haiku did boot on this machine. But on my machine the zbeos never appears. I only have a black screen with a blinking small white line in the top left corner.

My Hardware:
CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9550
Mainboard: MSI K9A2 Platinum (NB:790FX; SB:SB600)
GPU: Radeon X1950 Pro (RV570)

But I have the same Problem on an old PIII 800 with fujitsu-siemens server mainboard 440BX (On this machine I tried only installation methode 2)

This guy has the same mainboard an the same problem

Maybe I can do the serial connect thing from my Phenom machine do the PIII machine with beos on it. But is it meaningful on this early boot stage?
