Could it be the drive itself being flaky? I originally had the drive in 3 partitions, but then decided I'd only have two and used BeOS's installer to repartition it as two partitions. Could this be causing problems for Haiku on my G33BU motherboard?
Could having SMART enabled in the BIOS be affecting things, if the Maxtor UDMA33 doesn't use SMART (I dunno if it does or not)?
However, it seems odd... Haiku works fine on the drive in Athlonica... but utterly "bonks" (goes crazy) on the G33BU motherboard. So, logic dictates it CAN'T be the drive. It MUST be the IDE bus... or some aspect connected with it.
Does anyone know how to get Haiku onto a SATA drive, on a new system, without using BeOS R5 as an intermediary? In other words, how do I put Haiku on a SATA drive (if that would help alleviate the problem I'm currently having) on a system that BeOS is familiar with, without having to buy a SATA controller board to do so (and would BeOS be able to use a SATA drive on such a controller)?
And the other problem is... if I use Linux, on "QuadSlacker" (my G33BU motherboard) how do I get BFS partitions onto the SATA drive?

See tickets #1444 and #2050 http://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/1444 http://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/2050 though not the same issue that you are having they both involve start up issues where the system doesn't fully boot. File a new ticket will this info you have collected, perhaps it'll help fix something or not... You're on the right debugging trail. Try setting SATA as legacy in your BIOS and see if that gets you the same KDL. -scottmc On Thu, Apr 10, 2008 at 11:02 PM, Luposian <luposian@xxxxxxx> wrote:Ok, I got in the Boot Menu and, just to play it safe, I checked everyoption.

After a bazillion pages of PCI this and IDE that (I had to keep "press any key to continue..." over and over again)... it finally KDL'd and gave me this:PANIC: Could not write back block 2633 (Device timeout)Did I check off too many options or the wrong ones? Or is it saying my 6GbIDE drive is a POJ (Piece Of Junk)?This is a wonderful adventure... I just need someone willing to go with me,who knows the trail... :-) Luposian On Apr 10, 2008, at 8:54 PM, Dustin Howett wrote:In Haiku's bootup. Press space (more accurately, press it repeatedly ;)) before the boot splash shows up but after the BIOS gives up control.
