I have had nothing but problems getting up and running. I downloaded the
ISO image and burned it to a CDRW (PC didn’t see the CDR I used). I
tried to boot from the CD, but it failed. It said “Press Esc…”
like it normally does. If I hit ESC or not, the next thing I see is a
“C” and it locks up. Only a reset recovers. OK. Plan B. I booted
into Win98 and decided to install that way. This install worked. I
installed QNX on a third drive in my system dedicated to it. When I
reboot, the Win98 boot options come up (Win98, QNX DMA, QNX, noDMA). In
this case I get the prompt to hit the space bar, I do nothing, then I
get the following error:
“pci_server: PCI_Startup failed!”
The machine then seems to be hung. I’m stuck now.
The machine I have is a Gateway P5-90. This is my beast. I have swapped
in and out more hardware than any other machine. It currently has
32Meg, NEC 2Gig, WDC 1.6Gig, WDC 700Meg, 8x CDROM, NE2000 NIC, STB
Vision864. I understand that there are problems with the video card,
but I’m not getting that far. The drives mentioned are configured on
the IDE ports as follows: 2G=EIDE mastee, 1.6G=EIDE slave, CDROM=IDE
master, 700M=IDE slave. QNX is installex on the 700M drive, dedicated.
Any help is appreciated.
