I just decided to try Haiku and also revive my old PC again. So i’ve downloaded R1 Alpha 3 and had to install it three times.
First one: I’ve formatted my HDD for BeOS filesystem, didn’t selected mount option. But it stucked at 21536 or something.
Second: I’ve formatted HDD as first time, didn’t selected mount option. Installation was successful but when Haiku bootscreen appeared and reached the rocket (launch) icon, that stopped. I’ve tried some combinations, resetted; closed and rebooted; waited more than one hour its boot process but that boot process stuck at same icon every single time.
Then i’ve tried to boot as Live-CD. That booted so fast and worked fluent. Then i’ve decided to select mount option.
Third: I’ve formatted HDD again (BeOS file format) and selected mount. My HDD marked as Haiku1. Installed successfully. But now there is a boot selector and that doesn’t working at all. When i select “Haiku1” in boot selection and hit “continue booting” that resetting my selection. Safe mode doesn’t working.What can i do for this?
- Pentium Celeron 400MHz
- 8MB VGA Graphics Processor
- 128MB (actually BIOS says 119MB) SDRAM
- 6,99 GB PATA HDD
I’ve changed file allocation size to 8192 bytes and disabled queries while formatting HDD as BeFile System. Now its booting properly.
I have another problems with this OS but… whatever.
