The problem may be that you have an older disk driver that does not allow
for disks greater than 8G. The following comes from an entry in the QDN:
QNX4.24 will not automatically detect drives with geometries greater
than 8 gigs. There was an imposed 8 gig limit with pre-4.25A versions
of Fsys due to the non-standard reporting of geometries above this
Upgrading to 4.25A or later versions is the solution.
NOTE: Make sure to read the Update_info file in the
/update/qnx42/Released/ directory in the Updates/patches section of the
QDN(http://www.qnx.com/support/quics/index.html). There are instructions
as to which archives to use to update a system.
If a hard drive larger than 8 gigs is being used with the 8 gig limit,
and the drive is being upgraded with 4.25A or later, QNX will have to be
re-installed. This is due to the fact that the new Fsys.eide driver
will still use the translations in the current primary partition.
NOTE: It is not possible to modify the partition table with fdisk.
If re-installing, backup your data from the disk, then zero the
partition table before re-installing.
Please try this and see if it solves your problem.

I have a 30G sizes hard disk, and I create 4 logical partitions on it,
thereinto, 3 partitions are used to install WINDOWS system, the last one is
ready for installing QNX. When I install QNX 4.24, it can’t create QNX
partition, and it display that 0 Mbytes available space, but in fact there
is enough space for installing.
What should I do?
