I’ve just purchased a QNX4 Product Upgrade CD, and I tried to test the
first time installation on a 20GB disk.
The disk size was identified as 19GB disk. I defined one QNX partition
as occupying the whole area. I than installed QNX operating system and
TCP/IP only. One weird thing is that I received the message that my
system is installed rather quickly.
However, I reboot, but the QNX won’t come up. It starts the QNX loader,
but get stuck with the message “Press ESC for alternate OS…”
We found out that starting the QNX loader changes the BIOS disk
definitions (it won’t happen until QNX loader starts).
The disk definition as the auto detect utility finds is:
Size: 20556 MB, 2499 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors, LBA on.
The disk definition after QNX tries to boot is:
Size: 2114 MB, 1024 cylinders, 64 heads (everything else is the same).
The disk is Quantum Fireball Plus.
Anyone has an idea what is wrong here?
Thanks for your help,
