Has anybody tried to boot from CDROM/DVD non-QEMU seabios lately? I've tried to boot a few CDs/DVDs on AHCI and IDE drives and although the drive is detected, it will fail to boot. There is a timeout after which the next drive will boot. It seems the timeout is located somewhere in payloads/external/SeaBIOS/seabios/src/cdrom.c in function cdrom_boot(). When I tried to comment out this test:
int ret = scsi_is_ready(&dop); if (ret) dprintf(5, "scsi_is_ready returned %d\n", ret);
I was able to boot windows 98SE installation CD, but it failed after a few sectors (probably when the readiness was needed to be tested :D). If somebody can confirm it is not just my board setup (kontron 986lcd-m with the current coreboot branch) I would be grateful.
P.S. original message got stuck somewhere in the mailserver as I forgot to subscribe to seabios mailing list.
