I have a Lenovo laptop with AMD A8 apu and Radeon R5 gpu to put the new r1 beta1 into. I tried using Etcher and SUSE imagewriter, both cannot pass Haiku bootsplash in the live usb. Are there some things I’ve missed?
You might have been falling in a non working KDL bug that prevents loading. Try to press/hold Shift key or pressing space key some times before the bootstplash to trigger the boot menu, and try with the safe mode.
I’ll try it again tomorrow, thx for the info!
You need to Press&Hold the Shift Key almost immediately after having pressed Enter to initiate the boot process from the USB.
On many laptops, I have found that enabling the “Safe Mode” and “Use Fail-Safe Graphics Driver” options are sufficient to get to the desktop. If you do, then it is a matter of backtracking to identify the issue.
