Are you using the Haiku double-track (ISO/BFS) boot CD (created with jam haiku-boot-cd / jam haiku-image) or the new single track ISO CD (created with jam haiku-cd) ? I encountered the same issue with the latter.

It seems that the app_server (and other servers launched before it, except registrar) fails to launch. The "teams" KDL command only shows 4 teams : sh, kernel_team, registrar and waitfor ("/bin/waitfor picasso").

Disabling the write_overlay for the boot volume (see source:haiku/trunk/src/system/kernel/fs/vfs_boot.cpp@29261#L447) fixes the issue.

Yes, I'm using the single track ISO, created with jam haiku-cd.

Yes, the write_overlay is currently broken. I am still working on it. Note that the haiku-cd target is useless right now, as the installer cannot work with the single track cd because it doesn't export a proper partition.
