Try a different loader lilo for example. I know of some machine “Toshiba”

I have a Dell Inspiron with XP Pro installed, on a 60 gb hard drive. I
Partition Magic to create a 1 gb partition at the beginning of the
and installed QNX on it. When I tried to boot, the QNX loader got to two
periods (…), and then died. If I tried to boot the XP partition, it got
partway into Windows, and then also hung. When I used the Partition
rescue disk to change the active partition to the XP partition, then XP
would boot, but making QNX active again still failed the same way. I can
make XP boot reliably now, but QNX won’t. QNX comes up fine, and sees
QNX partition just fine, if I use the boot floppy created during the OS
Any ideas, comments, suggestions?
Sorry for the late response on this thread but we were buried with work
at the time and I am just now trying to catch up on the newsgroup.
We have a similar problem with Latitude 840C laptops. As the three
laptops arrived, they worked OK; I can triple boot using BootMagic (QNX,
Linux, Win2K). However, we installed a BIOS update (on two of them) and
QNX will no longer boot from the hard drive, whether from BootMagic or
if I install QNX’s loader on the MBR; QNX will boot from the floppy. The
non-updated BIOS laptop still works fine.
To my annoyance, we can’t get the BIOS to downgrade. The original was
A02 and the upgrade was to A06. When I try to install A02, the messages
say that it installed but there is no change; it is still A06. I have
not yet found the connection into Dell that can help me out.
Hence, we too need to know what is going on.
