Haiku bootloader resets Dell Inspiron B130

While trying to install Haiku hrev39939 gcc2hybrid on 3rd primary partition of an Inspiron B130 laptop, I was unable to get it to chainload from grub. The stage 1 loads, but I can never get to the boot menu holding down the Space key.

I was, however, able to get a little debug output by holding down ESC after the bootloader starts, but I had to use a video camera to capture it since it flies by so quickly. Attached is a screenshot from the video I took showing the output before it reboots.

Next steps to debug?

I found a bunch old USB sticks with different revisions of Haiku on them - some boot on this laptop, some reset.

I was able to get hrev34427 to boot, while hrev35141 fails.

I will continue to bisect revisions between these until I find the culprit.

Further bisecting of raw images from leads me to the conclusion that hrev34934 works, but hrev35081 fails.

Time to dig the commits.

Narrowed down to hrev34948 as the culprit.

Looks like an ACPI tweak.
