#9818 closed bug (invalid)

Boot failed - infinite loop

Reported by: RandomM00 Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: System/Boot Loader Version: R1/Development
Keywords: loop, infinite Cc:

Has a Patch: no Platform: x86


I copied haiku-nightly-hrev45732-x86gcc2hybrid-anyboot to a USB stick over R1alpha4.1. Alpha 4.1 worked fine (excluding sound and power management) but the nightly image prints "loading system" repeatedly and never manages to show the loading stage. I'm doing this on an Acer Aspire 521 netbook. I don't don't think I can get any more output. Alpha 4.1 only manages to produce audio if the system has been rebooted straight from Linux, and possibly the BIOS config display. Perhaps things aren't properly initialized under Haiku? Could the filesystem be having a problem with the image being written over a previous Haiku installation? I'll attach hardware specs reported by Linux.

How did you copy it to the stick? That sounds more like it wasn't copied properly.

comment:2 by RandomM00, 7 years ago

I think I did

sudo dd if=haiku-nightly-anyboot.image of=/dev/sdb

but my commandline history says I did

sudo dd if=haiku-nightly-anyboot.image of=/dev/sdb1

sdb1 was the alpha4.1 partition which was larger than the nightly image.

I'm just trying clearing the whole stick with

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb

then I'll rewrite the nightly image and try again to make sure. I'll double check the MD5 sum as well.

Indeed, sdb1 would only be the partition, not the entire stick/disk.

Anyboot images come with mbr and partition table, so you need to write them over the entire stick (sdb).

You're right. I feel very stupid. Hope my next ticket is a real bug... Thanks for the quick response though!
