Hi everybody,

since I currently can't report a bug, I just write to this list. After days 
of trying I still didn't get Haiku to boot on the hardware I currently have 

AMD 790FX/SB600 based mainboard
AMD Phenom FX9850
2GB DDR 800

Trying to boot from the HDD failed completely, but I didn't yet figure out 
why. Basically I get a "bad superblock magic' ...

Since I had no clue I tried to boot from an USB stick, which gives me a 
totally different result. The system doesn't print any error message instead 
it just displays a blinking cursor in the top left corner of the screen an 
hangs, no soft reset possible, no trip to whatsoever.

I also tried to boot from the USB stick basically disabling anything which 
could be disabled in the BIOS including the SATA devices, still the same 
result ...

Any ideas? Running Haiku on this machine in QEMU is slower than running it on 
my fucking old PIII-M notebook with just 752MB of ram in VESA mode, as the 
intel_extreme driver doesn't like my notebook. Just want to get something 
descent working ;-)
