#4583 closed bug (fixed)

"PANIC did not find any boot partitions" message with SIS IDE controller

When attempting to start Haiku Alpha 1 on my computer from a cdrom I got this error message just after the splash screen appeared. I already tried to disable DMA in the safe mode otions but it did not help.

My motherboard is an MS-6533 with a SIS 5513 IDE controller.

The same problem on P4 system with Intel 850 chipset where original Beos boots fine. I'll add serial debugging output.

I have the same issue on a Dell Optiplex 960 and my MSI Wind U100. Strangely, I've been able to get the alpha to boot into the live mode prior and the same CD now won't.

Is this a duplicate of ticket #4058 ?

Replying to Disreali:

Is this a duplicate of ticket #4058 ?

Could be. But #4058 emphasizes switching to new ATA stack in development versions, but this one is related to Alpha release.

I noticed in syslog:
ata 0 error: command failed, error bit is set. status 0x51, error 0x04

Did a little searching on it. Usually one of 3 things 1) failing drive (sector not found) - should test with manufacturer diagnostics software (quick+full) 2) BIOS settings 3) buggy driver.

You can try playing with BIOS settings, enable SMART, disable DMA, setting UDMA mode 2 (rather than auto), checking over your primary and secondary drive info to match installed hardware, (looking over drive connections can't hurt either), etc.

A little extra information about this error on Linux:

Can you recheck this with a recent Haiku build? It may have been fixed recently.

I just tried with Haiku hrev42190 and everything works perfectly

The cdrom loaded without problems, I installed Haiku and was able to start it. I think this bug is fixed.
