Olá, Descupem my ignorance, people. Following: I do not have experience in manipulating operational systems, to put I am curious. At the moment I am using the Haiku in one VM, virtual box I teethe of Windows XP. I obtain to initiate, to sail in web, and obtained to send and to receive e-mails, to make downloads etc, however I am a little frustado therefore I installed in hd and I did not obtain to initiate exactly creating an entrance in the Grub as recommended. It would like to know if until the launching of the Final R/1. the Haiku will go to have a way of proper start without having necessity to only install in set with another one, therefore it would facilitate that individuals with little experience could try the system and consequentimente to increase the base of users.

Umm what? What are you talking about?
The translator you are using to translate Portuguese into English, stops being comprehendible near the end of what you have written.
You appear to trying to configure GRUB to boot Haiku. I found that the old BeOS “bootman” worked much easier, for me. Read some of the old documentation to get an idea of whats involved
It is even possible to partition and initialize your hard drives with BeOs r5… when one cannot install Haiku. After partition and inizialation you can install Haiku on that partition…
…use “bootman” from BeOs R5 to make your System boot. (type “bootman” in Terminal to start it.)
What’s wrong with Haiku’s bootman? It has always worked fine for me…
Since your other system is WindowsXP, you probably don’t use Grub as boot manager. But if you do and changing its configuration doesn’t work as described for the installation, you may have a newer version of Grub that changed its syntax. See http://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/6031 to see an updated guide.
If you don’t use a boot manager at all (which is normal if you just have Windows on your system), try the Boot Manager (=bootman) from Installer’s “Tools” menu. It still has issues with some hardware configuration, but if it manages to get installed it works great.
Ok. Already I obtained has some days with bootman. I am using multi boot with 3 systems: 1 - Windows XP. 2 - Haiku. 3 - Ubuntu 10.04 Debtor
bootman works excellent for Win XP & Haiku here.
installed Haiku (2nd partition)
booted Haiku from install CD
typed bootman in Terminal, followed instructions
reboot, and bootman offered the choice between XP and Haiku
