Today i would to install Haiku PM on an SD card (i've always done this before with Haiku, using a RAW image as source). I format the target disk as usual inside DriveSetup, but then inside the list of destination disks of Installer, this disk is not present (note that instead, inside "Install from" is present). The only way to see this disk available is to reboot Haiku (unmount or removing phisically this SD card doesn't solve).

Something went wrong again. I've tried to install again Haiku to an SD card (and also on an USB key), and the disk is still not present in the destination list of Installer, also after a reboot. I've tried with some different SD cards and USB sticks, but the result is the same.

Is it a USB SD card reader? If so, it should be related to #9589.

comment:3 by Giova84, 7 years ago

I have an external usb card reader and also an integrated card reader on the computer case. But in anyway, differently from #9589 i can properly use these devices inside Haiku (i can create partitions and i can mount them without issues)

This issue is still here on hrev46102. I've also tried to install Haiku from a live cd on an initialized BFS SD card. I can mount and properly use this disk, but isn't available, as destination, inside "Installer". I've also tried with Haiku Alpha 4.1 and the installer, in this case, is able to immediately see this disk.

You mean the disk is available for mount outside Installer?

comment:6 by Giova84, 7 years ago

Yes: the disk is available for mount, outside the Installer. In anyway i have found that to see these disk under Installer i have to: shutdown the computer, remove the usb stick or the SD card, turn on the computer, boot again to Haiku and then reinsert the usb stick/SD card. But this doesn't always work. And as i've said, this issue is not present in Haiku Alpha 4.1
