Comment (by Luposian):

 I have been able to boot the USB drive on my Asus EeePC 1001PXD just fine.
 But on this system, nothing... I hit [Space] as soon as the USB drive
 starts blinking and all I get is the Windows 7 boot menu.  That's it.  I
 will give the CD drive option a try.  But I don't think it will work any
 better... I sense this system (AMD A6-3400M processor) is too different
 for Haiku's boot loader to recognize.  Anyone have a similar system (AMD
 A4/A6/A8 processor) that Haiku works on?

 I'm using the image file from R42804 (which I built in Lubuntu) on my 2Gb
 USB thumb drive.  Surely that's recent enough, no?  Like I said, it works
 perfectly on my Asus EeePC 1001PXD.

 Also, my 8Gb USB thumb drive, with Lubuntu on it, boots fine.  Lubuntu
 doesn't get all the hardware quite right (not surprising, as the AMD
 Fusion (A-series) chips are quite new), but it boots and works fine.  I
 created the R42804 image, on the EeePC 1001PXD, not this system, so I know
 it's not this system's conflict with Lubuntu (if any, during the build)
 causing the problem (like a corrupted image or something).
