Why does Bootman not work and Haiku won't install/boot?
|Reported by:||Luposian||Owned by:||bonefish|
I installed Lubuntu on my 320Gb SATA HD on my Acer Aspire X1200.
When I run the Haiku Live CD (from a recent build) and try running the installer, I can use Bootman and it sees the partitions and will address them as normal. I can also install the boot sector as well.
However, when I try to initialize the main drive (not one of the partitions, though I doubt that would matter), it seems to go ok, but upon trying to rerun Bootman, it says "No space available" in red, over the drive size shown. Yet it worked fine just a moment earlier, BEFORE I tried initializing the drive!
If I proceed to install Haiku onto the drive, everything seems to go smoothly and the system reboots... but all that pops up, after that, is the Haiku boot options menu and "no drive found" is the only thing shown. Upon trying to select a drive, there is none! My only option is to reboot, which, of course, accomplishes nothing, except ending up at the same screen again...
Thus, I'm in a situation where I can't install Haiku! Am I doing something wrong or is something wrong with the install process?
