I recently got Haiku 32 bit installed on an old laptop. I went into the BIOS and disabled UEFI and put it in legacy support mode, and booted from a Haiku USB stick. I partitioned (intel partition), formatted and installed.
But when I tried booting from the install, it said no bootable disk found. So I booted with the USB stick again, installed the boot manager, and set it to go into Haiku immediately. This worked, but the problem is, the boot manager always flickers some text on the screen before the Haiku boot screen shows up. This doesn’t happen when booting from the USB stick. How do I get my Haiku 32 install booting as visually clean as the USB stick?
The other finishing touch is that while I was first checking out Haiku, I was running in virtual box and installed quite a few packages. I’d like to migrate these over to my “real” install instead of spending all that time and bandwidth re-finding and installing all those software packages. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a way of easily identifying what packages are standard system packages and which are the result of the installs I did with Haiku Depot (the ones I chose, plus all of their numerous dependencies). Has anyone else done this?
