My Haiku machine went into an endless reboot cycle. Can’t remember which hrev it is, but around late 2018 or maybe 2019 I think. The computer has been working fine for about a year or more. No changes were made on it when it started doing this. It started doing this after I manually rebooted it from the start menu today (it was running fine before I rebooted).
Anyway, it goes through all the splash screen icons normally, then the mouse cursor shows up on the blue desktop background, but nothing else is on the screen except for a small blank popup window. Then exactly 60 seconds later, it reboots automatically, then repeats. I noticed I can log into it via VNC, FTP, and SSH during the 60 seconds it’s booted. I was able to download a system log file via FTP before a reboot. It has the following three lines which repeat over and over in the log:
KERN: check_sense: Illegal request
KERN: ata 0 error: command failed, error bit is set. status 0x51, error 0x54
KERN: atapi 0-0 error: device indicates transfer error after dma
Does anyone know what might be causing this? Thanks for any help.
