Haiku R1 alpha3 fails to boot on Asus A8V-VM, Athlon-64 3200+

Tried the ISO and anyboot. Bootloader starts running dots and then REBOOT! Funny thing is that when I start the bootprocess from PLOP Boot Manager (there's a option to boot from CD) the process runs further than if I start it from cold start BIOS boot device selection menu.

I have an Asus A8N-BR/HP Pyrite-GL8E motherboard and I am encountering the same issue. I was thinking it was this issue https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/7540, but last night I unplugged the SATA HDD and tried to boot Alpha 3 (ISO) CD from a USB drive and still receive the same boot behavior (initiate boot, progress dots and then system reboot).

After prelimianry investigation I assumed Haiku would be compatiable with my system.
