haiku can't boot on HP computer

Description

I have a somewhat older HP computer with an AMD Phenom x4 processor, 3 gigs of ram. I tried booting up a fresh version of haiku compiled today (39487) and it boots fine on my asus laptop via usb drive, but not on my hp desktop.

The error states that it can't find any boot partitions. Like I said, it boots fine on my laptop.

Without specifics on the exact hardware in that HP machine, I'm afraid this ticket is more or less completely useless since it gives absolutely no information relevant to actually tracking down what the problem might be. It could be an unsupported disk controller, it could be IRQs not being properly configured by the BIOS and thus not being able to init the controller correctly or a number of other things. A device list or serial log from the machine would be a good starting point.

here are the complete specs on the HP computer that I use. I have only put in a new ocz power supply as well as upgrading the graphics card on the device to the gt240 by nvidia

Maybe a month or more ago, I was able to run haiku on this machine. The only had to set safe graphics on boot to get it working.

In your bios settings. Is the bios option for Plug and Play Bios checked for yes ? is so , set it for no.

Also if you have a thumb drive, put it in the usb slot. do you have a empty partition for haiku ?

Try safe booting with APM,ACPI,APIC etc etc etc disabled. Your gtx240 should support the vesa driver just fine. I have had or tested all of those components and they all work just fine with haiku.

Would you mind trying to pinpoint and find the last working revision on your desktop? It would help a lot (ie hrev39202, hrev39300, hrev39400).

Replying to stargatefan:

I don't see any plug and play bios options in my bios (phoenix awards bios)

I'm trying to get haiku to boot off a usb drive, yes but I don't want to install it on this machine... (at least not yet)

I've tried all of those safe options with no progress

burn the anyboot image to a CD. the plug and play bios options are usually under hardware options for things like PCI etc.

i'll try to update my bios and get a new haiku image and see if I can't get this going.

just an update to this old ticket. I tried a fresh haiku build (40548) and it still errors out with the same as I posted above.

Could you please provide a verbose lspci? (sudo lspci -vvv for instance). Thanks!

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by scottmc

can you retry this with a fresh nightly build of Haiku?

comment:13 Changed 4 years ago by waddlesplash

Haiku boots just fine on my Phenom X4 system (4GB RAM). And no update so it probably can be closed.

comment:14 Changed 4 years ago by scottmc

@waddlesplash can you post the output of your system hardware, either listdev or lscpi in linux?
