Imposible to boot from CD

Reported by: daneel@… Owned by: axeld

When i try to boot from CD (whitout harddisk): Could not locate any supported boot devices!

But if i try the boot manager with any harddisk, i dont have this message.

So: CDROM is not recognized as a supported boot device.

You can try my boot floppy image here:

Strangly enough, but now i have this problem too, but i remember that i was able to boot haiku from pc 3 months ago and this bug opened 6 months ago, so there could be several problems. I attached serial debug log from vmware when haiku boots off cd. I will attach another debug log of boot on native hw.

boot haiku from pc should be boot haiku from cd

comment:14 by netster403, 14 years ago

i can verify this problem. I have a known good haiku boot cd, with the latest image (oct 12th) When boot on compaq armada laptop it fails to find the befs partition (on the cd). The chipset is Intel 82440BX/ZX. Not really a kernel bug, looks like the haiku boot manager cannot see any drive(s) (my harddrive has beos max on it, should'nt it see that also?)

Milestone: R1R1/alpha1
Priority: normalhigh
Version: R1 development

Moving to Alpha 1 milestone.

I get this same error on real hardware (Dell Latitude) with an encrypted hard disk. I used TrueCrypt to encrypt the whole system drive and Haiku won't boot. It shows the same "Could not mount boot device" error message.

Not sure if that helps but it's another scenario.

Since this is not a "doesn't work in general" but more of a "doesn't work on some hardware" bug, as I understand it, does this really have to be in R1/alpha? There is going to be a lot of hardware where Haiku won't boot on. Us being aware of it or not.

comment:18 by stippi, 11 years ago

Milestone: R1/alpha1R1

No feedback, I am moving it out of the milestone anyways, since Haiku definitely boots on at least all my computers from CD. So this should not be a blocker. See my comment above.

Does this still fail for any of the configurations listed in this ticket? Please retry using the Alpha CD or newer and report back.

It is now very possible to boot from a CD so closing this ticket. If you still have issues booting from a CD please open a new ticket and be prepared to give more details on your hardware setup, etc.
