Legacy Boot a HAIKU LiveCD ISO

E2B can Legacy boot from HAIKU ‘anyboot’ images if you give them a file extension of .HAIKU – or better still use an extension of _.HAIKU.ISO

UEFI-booting via agFM of a HAIKU ISO is not supported.

When you download a HAIKU ‘anyboot’ .zip file, unzip it and place the .ISO file in any standard E2B folder (e.g. \ISO\LINUX). Change the file extension to .HAIKU, e.g. haiku-release-anyboot_.HAIKU.iso 

Note that E2B will make a new partition #4 table entry for HAIKU with a type number of EB hex – this makes the disk invalid for most UEFI BIOSes. When you reboot E2B, E2B will complain that a Partition #4 exists and will prompt you to delete it. You must delete partition 4 to boot to the E2B menu. 

Note: You will not be able to UEFI-boot from the USB drive until you Legacy re-boot to the E2B menu and remove the HAIKU partition!

If you are prompted to erase partition 3 also – say No as it is probably needed by you! 

To can prevent these messages, which you will see after every time you run a .HAIKU file, add a partnew command line to the \_ISO\MyE2B.cfg file (shown in bold): 


#(usual MyE2B.cfg lines go here)
# --------------------------------------- ADVANCED MENU SETTINGS ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# DO NOT DELETE THE LINE ABOVE! - Settings below this next line will be preserved when using the E2B_Editor.exe
if exist (hd0,0)/_ISO/MyE2B.cfg partnew (hd0,3) 0 0 0
