Haiku boot image fails on HP Vectra pentium 3 computer
|Reported by:||Karvjorm||Owned by:||nobody|
I have tested this with two nightly builds in June. The last one was June 28, 2010 and obviously the latest nightly build.
When I put my Haiku ISO boot image CD-ROM to my laptop with plenty of RAM, I can boot the operating system and get the working desktop (and I could easily install Haiku to my laptop[, but I do not want to]). But if I put the same Haiku ISO boot image CD-ROM to an old Hewlett Packard Vectra desktop computer with only 512 MB RAM memory, the boot crashes when it should show images with black background. The same images can be shown in the picture in the following page
But in Vectra only a black screen with a color bar in the left top corner is shown.
I have tested this with two displays. First with LG FLATROL L1930LQ and then with hpL1520 (shown in the included picture).
My guess is that the reason is out of memory during boot. I can easily run Haiku in VMware image with 512MB RAM (setting), and maybe it could work in real hardware too, if I only were able to install the operating system. I have planned to move this hard drive to some other desktop computer with more RAM memory to install operating system and return then back to Vectra with working hard drive. But maybe we could try to fix this bug first.
