Is it or is it not possible to boot from a secondary master hard drive
I have a dual boot partition (Dos and qnx) with the qnx boot loader and
have no problems booting to either partition when I configure everything
as the primary master. But when I reconfigure everything as a secondary
master, I can only boot from DOS.
I get the following message:
No adapters found.
I’ve read through and tried changing my sysinit file to reference hd1
instead of hd0 as well as changing and recompiling the .boot file so
the fsys.eide command references hd1 (shown below)
$ /bin/Fsys.eide fsys -Ndsk1 -n0=hd1. eide -a1f0 -i14 -c15,8944,63,1
$ /bin/mount -p /dev/hd1.0 /dev/hd1.0t77
Even with the above settings, it boots up on the Primary master but not
According to the QNX knowledge base Ref 3955
it says the following:
installing QNX on another drive you must have a loader that can handle
drives, use a boot floppy, or set up a small 2Meg partition where you
can put the
bootable image which will mount the second hard-drive as /.
I want to be able to do this in case my primary drive fails.
Is there anyway to configure it without a boot floppy or a primary
