Intel D525 motherboard not able to boot haiku from partition on flash drive
|Reported by:||6foot3||Owned by:||nobody|

I have a 4GB flash drive with two partitions on it, one 1GB for haiku and the rest (2.75GB) as a FAT32 partition with a live Ubuntu 10.04 installed. It has grub installed on the MBR with the option to boot haiku or linux. For details of how the drive was prepared see: http://www.freelists.org/post/haiku-development/booting-from-partition-on-flash-drive,12 . As stated on that mailing list thread I found that arrangement to be quite valuable for testing since if haiku didn't boot, I could always try linux. I recently upgraded from my Intel D945GCLF2 to a D525MW motherboard and have been unable to boot from this flash drive into haiku. When I select haiku from the grub boot menu, I get the haiku boot loader menu with the line "select boot volume (current:none)" highlighted. Hitting enter takes me to the "Select Boot Volume" screen where the only choice is the haiku a partition on the hard disk. The boot loader appears not to be finding the haiku partition on the flash drive. This method works on my netbook which is quite similar to the new motherboard and was tested earlier using an R1/a3rc (41552).
