I installed this image (18.10) but my BootLoader doesn't see boot volume now. I haven't such problems on testing previous images - for exmaple from

It might have been some of the newer code that was introduced over the weekend.

I've now put up one from the 19.10 in it's place.

Also, I noticed that axel just checked this in "Looks like some BIOS don't bother filling in cylinder/head/sectors_per_track information for extended drive parameters. This should fix eventual "no boot disk" messages of the boot loader."

Is that the problem you were having ? That'll appear in image 20.10

Yes. That's my problem.

20.10 version is not working for me 'no boot volume found' on Haiku BootLoader.

Try 21.10 - I think because I'm in the furtherest ahead timezone (GMT +10) that update of Axel's looks like it didn't make it into 20.10

You have right - 21.10 version is working great. Thanks for Your help.

Glad to help out and glad to hear all is well. 22.10 is now available.

Thanks for doing this Sikosis!

I've downloaded and installed 21.10 on my HD in it's own BFS partition and it works apparantly: apart from my mouse (is detected but doesn't move: and as soon as I move it KB is gone).

It's cool to finally really play around with 'the real thing' here.
(Asus P2B-D with 2xP3500, though only one is reported).

I'll try these images on a regular basis now I think (saw both my Matrox and nVidia driver work nicely :)

"marcusoverhagen * r14474 /haiku/trunk/src/add-ons/kernel/drivers/input/ps2_hid/mouse.c: On buffer read error, return B_ERROR (instead of B_OK-result from previous acquire_sem)"

That Mouse/KB is a known error that's cropped up recently that Dr_Evil has been looking into.

Where did the link to the Haiku site go?

What does the image do in Bochs.

After reading the Bochs documentation I tried and failed to get Bochs to work and uninstalled it out of frustartion.

Then I tried again after a good nights sleep and reinstall got Haiku (turns out I just had to rename the configfile)to boot(had to add those quotes around the path) to see the logo and nothing else (not tracker/deskbar or mouse)

I know it does more, but I got the logo.

I used cylinders=920, heads=10, spt=17 is this close to right?

I also tried safe mode. Just the background logo loaded, maybe I need to let it run awhile?

I know there is an issue with certain keyboard/mouse configurations ...

Dr_Evil posted this on the weekend on the mailing list:-

"This seems to be a long standing problem:

I'm investigating this issue now, also with regard to Active PS/2 Multiplexing
specification, hot plug (think of notebooks with ps/2 mouse) and Synaptics
TouchPad absolute mode. It may take some days until it is resolved..."

Thanks for the info sikosis,

Downloading 24/10 image now :-)
BTW I also saw that unplugging the mouse for the previous image i tested stopped the kb from working. It seems that a previous mod on the input stuff which meant to solve that specific problem actually doesn't do 'it's job.

Anyway, I'll try to make myself at home asap :-)
