Comment (by Luposian):

 Ok, let's establish if I'm doing anything wrong...

 Starting from a standard Lubuntu install (which worked perfectly), I had:

 1) One large partition (Where Lubuntu is installed, I assume)
 2) One small partition (the SWAP partition)

 After booting into the Haiku Live CD (or running the Installer; I assume
 either path will allow the same end result, when attempting to Install
 Haiku to the HD), what do I do?

 If following every step, to the letter, still results in no bootable Haiku
 partition being found and the Haiku boot menu being the only thing I can
 "get to" after a reboot, then I will know something else is wrong, beyond
 my own possible ineptitude, and we'll take it from there.
