I ran BeOS in the early 2000’s; loved it.
Trying to install Haiku R1Beta1 on a brand new Intel NUC 8i5BEH
Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2400 4GB x 2
Hard drive: Samsung 860 evo 2.5" 500 GB ssd 2.5 inch SATA ssd
We were using Legacy, not EFI.
Ziff forwarded an image of the error report we received.
We have tried installinv via a thumb drive in usb3 and internal usb2 ports as well.
We seemed to get farther into the install on the DVD.
Do we need to partition the drive before the install
when installing on a never-before used hard drive?
If you want to make certain that the drive you are wishing to install to isn’t the issue, disconnect that drive. Then just try booting from the install media. You shouldn’t have to partition or initialize it before booting the install media. I’m will to bet your problem exists elsewhere.
Have you tried loading the bootloader before booting haiku itself? You can set safe mode options here. I forget which, it’s either spacebar or shift that you hold down while bios hands off control to the boot media. I hold down both and that works for me.
Tonight I tried a new usb2 drive, 8GB “Verbatim Clip-it” attached to one of the external USB3 ports in the back of the NUC… (instead of the previous tries with usb3 32GB flash drive.) Used UEFI in Bios.
I also loaded the anyboot iso hrev52815 onto the new usb2 drive.
Same result. Same Panic message.
Yes, most likely we don’t support your USB controller properly, and so booting off of anything connected via USB will not work. Checking the last few lines of “syslog” by running that command at the prompt will probably show some “XHCI” error message, and more than likely it’s a duplicate. There isn’t anyone on the dev team right now who is an XHCI expert unfortunately…
When installing Haiku to an existing partition using GPT layout, there is an issue with the GTP UUID partition code which can prevent Haiku Boot EFI from identifying a Haiku partition. See this post for a way to resolve the issue:
