Comment (by Luposian):

 I think I discovered my problem.  I'm not 100% sure, but I think the LG
 DVD-RW drive I just bought from Best Buy is the problem.  When I plugged
 in an older DVD-ROM drive, the above 64-bit Haiku image (hrev 45222) I
 complained wouldn't boot, booted perfectly fine!  I'm replying from it!

 Apart from the fact there are a lot of programs and apps missing from this
 image, is there an absolutely positive way to confirm this is a 64-bit
 version of Haiku?  Nothing seems to say it anywhere I look.  Not in the
 About, not in WebPositive, nothing.  Is there some Terminal command or
 something that would confirm this for me?

 I'd like to be able to use the LG DVD-RW drive, but not sure how anyone
 would code around it.  I can give a model number and anything on the box,
 but I can't boot this image from it, so I can't locate any particular info
 on it and my Acer Aspire X1200 only has two SATA ports!  One for the DVD
 drive and one for the hard drive!

 I could possible use the SATA cable from the hard drive and put it on the
 LG DVD-RW drive and see if Haiku can tell me anythingh about that drive,
 when I boot from the older DVD-ROM drive.

 Funny thing... I had a simliar issue with Windows Vista years ago... it
 wouldn't install from the DVD-ROM drive I had just bought, but booted from
 another DVD drive I had!  Weird!
