Comment (by Luposian):

 I ran Active@ KILLDISK to zero the drive and make one 320Gb empty drive.
 Haiku sees no usable partitions.  I was going to just Init the drive, but
 then didn't know if I should use Intel partition map or Be File System.
 Also, does it need a partitioned/formatted drive BEFORE initializing the
 drive, or is a blank/zero'd drive perfectly ok with it?

 The first image is of Haiku not recognizing the drive.  The second image
 is what Haiku shows after I tried to partition/format the drive in Lubuntu
 and then Init the drive as BFS, and install Haiku.

 After reboot, all I get is Haiku's boot menu and no visible
 drive/partition!  The Live CD drive setup program then shows what you
 see... weird!

 I have since run Active@ KILLDISK again and am starting with a completely
 zero'd (unpartitioned?) drive again.  Let's see where we get, starting
 from scratch again... now, what do I do?

 Haiku will say no partitions recognized.  Then I go to the disk utility.
 What do I do from there?  Does the drive have to be partitioned/formatted
 (with another OS) FIRST, or will it work fine completely zero'd (zeros
 written to the entire drive)?

 Do I initialize using "Intel Partition Map..." or "Be File System..."?

 I used to be able to do this so easily... now I can't get anything to
 work! :-(
