Comment (by Luposian):

 I just discovered the Gateway NV55S09u uses an InsydeH2O BIOS.  Yup...
 I've never heard of it either, but I think that is what is causing the
 problem.  Weird thing is, it will boot Lubuntu just fine off of an 8Gb USB
 thumb drive, but won't boot that same OS off of a 16Gb SDHC card.  Even
 when it's set to the first thing to boot.  But Haiku won't boot at all.  I
 sense it may be something to do with the fact Haiku is not Windows, Linux,
 or Unix, which are the OS's that InSydeH2O BIOS claims to support.

 I still have yet to try to create a CD-ROM copy of Haiku.  I'll have to
 try that next.  I have a vague feeling it won't boot either... I think the
 BIOS is munging things up.
