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.

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.

Mine is booting from an SD card using the Anyboot image. Might just be the SD card's fault. I'll probably try another at some point.. or try writing the image on the same device (used another laptop and the suggested windows based DD alternative.) The Wind is reasonably old now (2008?) and my kids tend to use and abuse it, so it might just be a hardware issue. I think the AHCPI is on too in the BIOS, so I might try turning that off...

I have it running in VMWare 5, hosted on Windows 7 64 bit.

But I bet you haven't booted the VM from an SD card, right? That's the issue...

Edit: decided to use the Anyboot to create a new VM with VMWare as the image booted fine using it as a "CD". Runs nice!
