Hi, I’m trying to boot after a successful install, but the bootloader hangs.
First harddrive on primary ide channel has two partitions, first one win98,
second one win2000. I’m using the windows 2000/NT bootloader on that drive.
The second harddrive is a 2GB drive dedicated to qnx, everything installed
fine, the installation procedure finishes and asks me to remove disks and
When I reboot, I get the NT bootloader screen, this isn’t too surprising.
I booted into win98 dos mode and used bootpart
(http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm) to extract the boot sector from
the qnx harddrive and add it to the NT bootloader.
Rebooting and choosing the new qnx option in the NT bootloader, I see the
qnx bootloader run, but after printing about two lines of periods it ends
with a C …
Press Esc for alternate OS…[etc]…C
The hard drive light stay illuminated and nothing happens. If I reboot and
hit ESC I get essentially the same thing, except no ‘C’ on the end.
I don’t know how to proceed from here. A floppy bootdisk would be
acceptable but there only seems to be a floppy image for an install disk,
not a boot disk. Am I missing something?
Thanks for your help,
