BeOS & Derivatives Can you believe they've come this far by now? Once known as OpenBeOS, Haiku today announced the release of the fourth alpha for Haiku R1. It seems like only yesterday when BeOS died and OpenBeOS rose form its ashes, generating a new hope among the legions of avid BeOS fans. Now, almost twelve years later, we've hit the fourth alpha.

I hope you'll post your issue on the Haiku bug tracker (if you decide to become a little less lazy). ;)

I love reporting Haiku bugs. The developers are nice to work with. It may take a couple days or a couple months, but the bugs I report always get fixed.

Maybe.. but there are so many factors. I could be that I was booting from an SD card, could be that the Wind has 2GB RAM stick, with 1GB also being soldered on the mother board (disabled), could be that the SD card was crap (was free with a Samsung Android phone.)

I'll try booting with VMWare... (though can't do that from same image... FAIL!).. err.. this laptop after I next reboot..

Similar hardware here (Aspire One) and alphas 3 & 4 boot from a usb stick dded with the anyboot image. Crashes booting from usb cd-rom.
After alpha3 there's been a minor gma950 regression as the native resolution must now be set manually, 1024x600 @ 70Hz for some reason.

Aha!! This is the thing blocking the boot process, this describes exactly what I'm seeing:
