[Resolved] Booting to Haiku from Grub only works when Haiku installed in a Primary partition?
I have a spare primary partition on my Asus EeePC 901 20 GB where I installed a Haiku raw image (downloaded to Ubuntu and dd'ed it over to the "haiku" partition).
Then I made it bootable by running "makebootable" from within Ubuntu.
As has been well documented recently, this works perfectly.
However, I then decided to go a step further and take out that primary partition, create an extended partition in its place and put two logical partitions within the extended.
Now I copied the haiku-alpha.image over to one of the logicals and made it bootable as usual. Everything fine up to now so I made the appropriate changes to the Grub boot menu for the new location of Haiku. So now the Grub entry for Haiku looked like this:
##Haiku title Haiku-alpha 25-11-2008 rootnoverify (hd1,4) makeactive chainloader +1
Then I tried to boot Haiku and got
Error 12: Invalid device requested
After much totally fruitless messing around, I re-created the primary partition I had deleted and re-installed Haiku as before.
Once again, it booted fine.
So, it seems I can't get Haiku to boot from a logical partition.
Anybody know why or how to get around this?
