Haiku Live CD doesn't boot

Reported by: pepito Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Boot Loader Version: R1/alpha3

Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


When I try to boot Haiku using the CD, in the computer appear some points that means that it's booting, but suddenly it starts to reboot. I don't get to see the haiku logo, just a black screen with some points appearing, but that lasts three seconds moreless. It enters in a cycle of rebooting. I have downloaded the ISO two times and have burnt them in differents CDs, and they work in other computers. The hardware of the computer is: RAM: 384 MB Processor: Intel Pentium III (866 MHz) Motherboard: Intel 815EP

Does the "anyboot" image lead to the same issue ?

Note : The anyboot image is designed to be bootable from various media (HDD, USB stick, or CD).
Just burn it on a CD as you did it with the ISO image.

Also : if you press the <shift> key while booting, do you get the boot menu? If you get it, you may try many differents setting ("Enable on screen debug output" debug option for instance, or safe mode options) and then provide more helpful informations to the developpers.

Try a different cdrom drive. My HP laptop with a nec cd reader would not boot haiku.

It's been 7 years, this likely has been fixed by the anyboot image and/or other changes since then. If you still experience this using the anyboot CD image please open a fresh ticket.
