Hardware for build


#1

Any Ideas on a small form factor barebones platform for a Haiku only box ?


Computers compatible with Haiku (v2)
#2

I’ve found that the Intel NUCs work really well with Haiku, all the hardware is supported, sound, ethernet, wifi, everything!


#3

I also recommend getting a cheap Intel NUC box. Haiku usually boots out of the box with those mini PCs with most of the hardware working perfectly. I have a NUCi3BNK Kaby Lake model for development and testing purposes.

If you are after a “very small” form factor, either an UP Board or a LattePanda Alpha should both work on Haiku.

Intel’s highest end NUC probably would not work just beware of that one as it has AMD Vega graphics… I think it might still have integrated intel graphics though not sure.


#5

Thanks !
Ill get one!
Also I found a Hardware thread esleware on this forum.


#6

In a NUC with Vega, all display outputs are connected to the Vega chip, not the Intel one.

Apparently a cheap combination (even on the go):

Mini PC - CSL Narrow Box Ultra HD Compact / Win 10

CSL mini wireless keyboard

If someone lives in Hannover, he could look there with a haiku stick …

How is this going to work?

NUC

Seems reasonable I’d go for a larger but slower Inland SSD 480GB for the same/similar price though… works fine in my x140e and is fast enough for me. The Samsung is definitly faster but… it’s still a sata drive.

The inland SSD’s apparently have toshiba flash memory. It has no cache other than the 32mb on the controller though so theoretically would wear out a little faster under heay use.

return_0e,

Your NUCi3BNK works OOB ? network and audio ? display mode?

Thanks for the help.

#11

Yes it does. I have one and everything works.


#12

Thanks, I’m ordering one now!


#13

mmm… Seems I ordered a boxnuc7i3bnk with m.2 ssd. Is this going to work?


#14

if you use a sata m.2 drive. I use a WD Blue m.2. Green should work fine too, just not Black, they’re nvme.


#15

Thanks for the reply. Ordered a m.2 drive. should be up and running Monday.


#16

I have an Intel NUC model NUC7i5BNH and unfortunately I wasn’t able to boot Haiku from the thumb drive.


#17

Do you have UEFI enabled?

Or are you using Legacy boot? Try the other way whichever you are using. Also note only 64bit images have UEFI support.


#18

Hi, I tried both Legacy and UEFI boot with same results using the 64bit image. Here are the errors of each mode: IMG_0354

I’m booting from USB3.0, could it be the cause?

Cheers


#19

Almost definitely disable USB 3 in your BIOS if possible. Or use a USB 2 port if you have one USB 3 has made recent progress but isn’t completely stable.


#20

According to the Specs my NUC has 4 external USB3, 2 front 2 back, and 2 USB 2.0 inside but I dont have the cable to try that so I’m basically stuck with 3.0. Also according to the specs there’s a microsdxc port… which i didn’t know it had, so I’ll try to boot from that instead later today and I’ll post my result here.

Cheers
