[Solved] Can't make a bootable USB under Haiku

I want to make a bootable USB stick with bigger BFS partition (if I do this with dd under linux its only near 700mb, not enough to test some software). So, I choose to make it under Haiku with DriveSetup and Installer.

I am boot up Haiku from 2GB USB drive. Then insert 8GB USB drive and run DriveSetup. I am maked Intel partition table and make BFS Active partition. Then I run the Installer and choose the 8GB USB drive as a target. The installation was fine. But when I try to boot this 8GB USB drive the error “bios_ia32 stage1: Failed to load OS” appears, no matter what. If I try to make a boot menu in Haiku installer, the boot menu loads, but when I press Enter the “bios_ia32 stage1: Failed to load OS” error appears again.

Is there a way to fix it?

  1. Write the iso-image Haiku on USB 8 gigabytes
  2. Boot a computer from USB 8 gigabytes
  3. In a free place to create active big partition and format it in BFS
  4. Install Haiku in this partition
