== Haiku may hang at boot in some VirtualBox configurations ==
* '''Error''': Haiku starts to boot and all the icons on the boot screen light up, but after that no Desktop appears.
* '''Reproduction''': This may be reproduced on some (current) VirtualBox configurations. It is believed that the serial debug output, that was kept enabled in the alpha release, causes the VM to hang on some versions of VirtualBox when the emulation of a serial port is not enabled (the default setting for new VMs).
* '''Resolution''': To get arround the hang, enable the first serial port in the VM configuration. It doesn't matter what you configure the serial port to (a setting of "disconnected" is fine) it is merely about enabling the emulation of the virtual serial port.
