bug ticket #3663
This ticket states:
Haiku fails to boot. The booting process goes fine, until the desktop is supposed to appear, but only the blue background appears and the mouse is frozen, the system can't even be rebooted with ctrl-alt-del.
I am have no clue, whether this is related to the recent directory changes or not. The last revision, which I'm sure that it worked was r29805.
This is a fresh image with no prior file lying around, which might cause trouble.
Failing revision is r29881.

Most likely it is a conflict between the hda driver and OSS. The hda driver has been added to the default image and will conflict with OSS if you have the corresponding optional package installed. Please remove either the hda or the OSS driver from your installation in that case.

Ok, thanks for the feedback!
I am having difficulty getting sound to work with the HDA driver and have submitted a bug #4838 about it. In the mean time I installed a Soundblaster Live sound card in my machine turning off the onboard audio option in the bios setup. Then I did a fresh (formatted new partition) installation of Haiku Alpha 1 from the live cd without any optional packages and got the same results as above on the first boot.
I'm guessing that the installation detected my Soundblaster card and provided OSS automatically along with the embedded HDA driver. So I tried removing the HDA driver from /boot/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/audio/hmulti and /boot/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin. This doesn't fix the problem for me like it did for stippi, using r29881.
My question is does the kernel always look for the HDA driver because its been added to the default image, even after removing the actual HDA files and will I ever be able to use my Soundblaster Live in Haiku?
