Just tried to install the latest release of QNX RTP on my Dell
Latitude XPi P75D with Advanced Port Replicator III. The APR has a
built in “ISA” Adaptec 15xx BIOS-less SCSI controller and a 3Com 509b
The new boot floppy fails to load the PCI driver (which of course it
won’t since there is no PCI stuff in this 1995 era laptop) then it
finds the SCSI controller and loads the aha2 driver. The install
finds the CD but then says it can’t mount it as a cd.
I downloaded the new ISO file, all 256megs of it, from qnx.tucows.com
then made the CD with Nero Burning ROM using Disk At Once mode
just like I did the previous QNXRTP release.
The CD-ROM I tried to use is my SCSI Panasonic 7502W CD-R, which I
have in an external case so it can be used with my desktop PC, the
laptop and my Macintoshes.
Are there any modifications I can do to the boot disk to make it
not attempt to find the non-existant PCI bus and mount the install CD?
I tried it with and without pressing Esc when it said to, without
any visible difference, also tried normal and verbose mode.
