Progress goes as far as getting to where the Live CD of Alpha 2 checks for hard disks.
It throws an "ATA 0/1 Error Bit Is Set" error when locating the HDD's, which there are two of. ATA 0, ATA 1 which I see in KDL.
KDL message: "PANIC: Unable to find bootable partition" or a message very similar.
Status: 0x51 Error: 0x54
I have a blank partition for installation of Haiku, where Alpha 1 formerly resided.
ALPHA 1 LOADS FINE! Alpha 2, not so much. My disc of Alpha 2 loads perfectly on another PC, it isn't the media.
I disabled DMA, USB in the BIOS and that did not help. I have forced PIO 4 mode in BIOS for the HDD's, that didn't help either.
I have toggled / enabled every safe mode setting of Haiku and nothing works. I spent a whole night trying to get it working.
Hardware: Shuttle Socket-A AMD motherboard, nForce 2 Ultra 400 chipset, old Athlon XP CPU. ATA/100 HDD transfer, not SATA. This is hardware from 2002/2003. A Western Digital 120GB drive and a Maxtor 80GB drive I believe.
