Hi all. I finally decided to set up Haiku on my Surface Pro 2. It was running Ubuntu till last night, but Linux, meh.
As it is 64bit and EFI, I went to set up the partition table. I removed the existing partitions, and that might have been my mistake as Drivesetup complained after deleting each one that it failed to delete them, but did anyway succeed. But after having a blank drive, I now can’t create any new partitions. It seems to fail every time. Anyone have an idea what I am doing wrong?
So I, selected the “-“ free space and “create” and tried to make the EFI data of 32MB. Error. Tried to create one for whole drive as BFS, failed. Rebooted, tried again, failed. I then tried whole drive as BFS, success and volume mounted. I then initialised with GUID and tried again. Fail. Tried Intel for a last ditch attempt, failed again.
It seems like it is the partition creation part that it is unhappy with. Is there a way to do this from the command line?
Oh, drive is reported as a “LITEON” and is 128GB in size. Haiku sees it, so I guess it should be okay?
Oh and Haiku, it’s a nightly. I don’t have the Greg version to hand but it was from about 2 or so weeks ago. I’ll find it later if that helps more.
