A picture paints a thousand words …
This is on my 3-year old Samsung laptop. with a celeron 2.1 GHz, integrated Intel graphics and 6 GB Ram. The same laptop boots various Linux CDs effortlessly. I’ve tried it from USB stick as well. Identical results. That laptop did boot Haiku A3 once upon a time.
Also, I managed to get Haiku A4.1 booted and installed on my Acer netbook, so there’s nothing wrong with the Haiku CD.
