I cannot boot installed Haiku. I’ll try to describe the situation.
Machine: EeePc 4G with 2 GB RAM and HDD plugged to an additional
IDE port. Monitor is plugged to VGA port, keyboard and mouse to USB ports.
In computer repair shop someone was made a hardware
change so that machine can detect another HDD. I cannot tell
what exactly was done (one piece of wire on motherboard).
Before Windows XP bootloader (IDE Slave, BIOS says) was able to access
the entire HDD and boot Windows from it. The guy told me that without this
fix BIOS cannot detect another IDE device.
During POST if ESC is pressed brings the menu to choose from what
to boot (Hitachi HDD, Siliconmotion SSD and USB if plugged in).
Haiku boot perfectly from USB stick and brings the desktop. I gave the entire HHD and installed Haiku on it (see screenshot).
Then I ran Bootmanager and to prepare bootlader and saved the
menu on /dev/disk/ata/1/slave/raw (only choice). As well after installation I
ran: makebootable /dev/disk/ata/0/master/raw
After rebooting the machine bootlader renders 2 choice:
1 - Not a bootable partition (and then hangs, keyboard does not respond)
2 - boot Windows which was on HDD (WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER - of course complaining is could not start Windows, ).
What I have done is I took another USB stick and installed what is called
Super Grub2 Disk ISO and put on stick. When I boot from it, I get access
to Boot Manually -> Disks and Partitions (Chainload) -> (hd2) “Hitachi…”
If I choose this, I get Haiku booted from HDD.
If I could not ran command makebootable /dev/disk/ata/0/master/raw, this choice won’t let to boot Haiku with this Grub2.
Can someone gave me the hint where to go and dig to get Haiku booted without booting USB Grub2 trick?
Where Haiku Bootmanager in Haiku stores the choice what to boot?
Thanks in advance
