I hadn’t bothered to update Haiku in a while. I noticed that the last entry in the boot menu was sometime in October, 2022. I figured it was time to freshen things up, so I did a full update last night. About 193 packages were downloaded and installed, no problem. Upon reboot, the Haiku bootloader can no longer see the Haiku drive! Also, this is on bare metal, on my System76 laptop.
I managed to get Qemu to run with EFI and load
/dev/sda as the disk. It loaded the Haiku bootloader, but also, no Haiku disks. To make sure I wasn’t mistaken, I tried booting
/dev/sda with legacy boot, and as expected, nothing happened (Qemu’s firmware complaining about no bootable disks, expected since the laptop is EFI only).
I’m assuming the only thing to do is re-install Haiku. But what could have caused this? I’m not really concerned about data loss, but would like to not have it happen again. Once booted a live image of Haiku, is there a repair thing I should try?
