I have decided to give QNX RTP 6.1.0 a try, so I downloaded the iso, checked
MD5 checksum was correct, and burned the image using Nero (latest version).
that the ISO was bootable, by the way.
I have a slightly peculiar setup when it comes to storage.
I have a SCSI Tekram DC-390U card (ncr5c875 chip) on which are 2 hard disks
(2 gigs and 1 gig) and a Yamaha CD-Rom. I also have a 2 gigs seagate EIDE
as masteron the secondary controller of the motherboard.
The ISO won’t boot in the CD-Rom (“Operating System Not Found” BIOS message
the disks were frormatted for the install). I have read in the SCSI
controller manual that it will
only boot devices which have 512 bytes/sector as a block size. Could it be
that the ISO is burned
differently, or does it have no bearing? I’m pretty sure the ISO integrity
was good when I burned it,
and I selected a low speed (4X) to ensure a flawless image.
Is there a solution to this? Can I use a floppy for the kernel/root loading,
and then switch to the
CD for package installation (I haven’t seen the option anywhere)?
Also, I tested the iso in my windows machine, and it works (gonna test if it
boots soon). I made the
boot floppy in hopes that it would do the job but it crashes in an odd way.
When I don’t disable “detect
other storage devices besides EIDE” (or close, I don’t rememeber the exact
term), it crashes right
after detecting my SCSI card by repeatedly writing “Too Much Data SCRATCHA0
0 SFBR 0 IntType 11”…
And it won’t allow me to continue the install anyways when it doesn’t
That’s it! If you can make something out of this, please help! Thanks in
