Description (last modified by mmadia)

Haiku fails to boot. The booting process goes fine, until the desktop is supposed to appear, but only the blue background appears and the mouse is frozen, the system can't even be rebooted with ctrl-alt-del. After removing my Soundblaster Card and reinstalling Haiku it boots beyond a dead blue screen.

It is exactly as I stated in opening the ticket. Removing the HDA driver did not fix the problem for me like it did for stippi. After removing the Soundblaster Card and reinstalling Haiku it boots beyond a dead blue screen.

What he means is to make the ticket summary and/or description more concise. In its current form it's frankly impossible to tell which parts you actually wrote and which parts are randomly copy pasted from the description and/or comments of ticket #3663, and as such it's relatively difficult to tell what the ticket is actually about.

Does this copy and paste work for you?

if you want to be able to use haiku, but without sound, sound can hold "shift" before boting haiku and chosing from the menu "safe mode". With that option you can boot haiku and then you can delete the link in the folder "hmulti", which points to the driver your soundcard needs. (or you can also delete all links of hmulti, so you are sure, yours is alto deleted.) I have the same problem with my soundcard, see #4491

I have a BX440-chipset Intel Celeron box with both dual soundcards: Auich and Emuxki SBLive. No KDL. (And definitely no BSOD.)

Removing hmulti did not work for me. I oringinally installed my soundblaster live because hmulti did not recognize my onboard HDA. I have since removed the soundbalster and do not intend to re-install it. Instead I will wait for my HDA bug to be addressed.

Then, if your problem will not be fixed, you can start in safe mode, and move for example from the folder "services" the "media_server" into home-folder, and when you want to enable it and try it again, move the media_server back to the origianl folder. I also have to use haiku without sound, and it's better than nothing.

I am not using my soundblaster card. I put it in another computer where it works fine. I am waiting for the HDA driver to updated so that it works for my onboard HDA device. In the mean time I am booting with no problem and and using Haiku without sound. Thank you for your concern.

I see no reason to keep this bug open. At least provide a syslog if reopening.
