#9681 assigned bug

Failure to boot off Hard Drive

Reported by: scanty Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Boot Loader/BIOS Version: R1/alpha4.1
Keywords: Cc: bug5lay4r@…
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


Yesterday morning I tried to install Haiku to its own hard drive and had absolutely no success in booting. I used an alpha 4.1 ISO to do this. GRUB found Haiku automagically, but couldn't boot it. I just get a black screen with a flashing cursor in the upper left corner. If I advance to the next partition in GRUB (/dev/sdb1 instead of /dev/sdb, where it should be) I get the Haiku boot menu, but fail to scan for any bootable volumes. Not sure what's going on here.

My mistake. Haiku lives on /dev/sdb1. Sorry.

If it helps at all, I tried booting via QEMU and it says:

Booting from Hard Disk...bad superblock.

I can't help but wonder if the problems are related.

Tried the Haiku boot menu. Only the CD, and not the hard drive is listed there. Seems like maybe this drive is not being detected.

Possibly a hardware/implmentation bug. I just tried a different hard drive and still get a black screen with white flashing cursor.

Can't say about QEMU, but currently Haiku can be booted only from 1st disk. See ticket #3545 for reference. So I suggest to close it as a duplicate.
