Here is how you might try to recover.
- Boot off of a floppy
- Start the Fsys driver, maybe:
- Use fdisk and see if your partition is
If not, put it back. If you can’t remember where it
started, you could use spatch and look for
QNX4FS at the begining of a sector.
- Once your partition is back, mount it
mount -p /dev/hd0
- Try mounting the partition, as in
mount /dev/hd0t77 /hd
If the partition is there, you might
need to use fdisk to put the QNX loader
back on the disk, but otherwise you should
be ok. If you find that the partition is
corrupted, you can do the following.
dinit -hr /dev/hd0t77
The r causes the root directory to be initialized.
Now you want to find an link back the missing
directories, such as /usr and /home. You will
have to read up on how this can be done with
