"Unable to mount /dev/cd0 as /fs/cd" during Install...

First I’d appreciate if you all replied via e-mail if possible, I really do
not frequent this newsgroup. And TIA! :slight_smile:

I’m unable to install QNX RTP 6.1.0 onto fairly standard hardware, EIDE/IDE
based CD/DVD-ROM drive, Tekram DC-390U2W SCSI controller (Symbios/NCR
chipset). The OS loads fine off CD and runs fine in DEMO mode off CD no
hiccups, but if I try to install it to the HDD which is on the SCSI
controller I get past the partitioning & boot loader selection only to have
it barf out just after that when it “reloads and restarts drivers” – in
verbose mode it shows the detection of the SCSI chain, but nothing about
IDE, then it complains as above in the subject it can’t get ahold of

What in the devil is going on here? IT boots off the CD fine, it runs off
the CD fine, there are no known issues with the system (runs
Free/Net/OpenBSD in production, runs Linux fine too).

My desktop it refuses to do anything (tend to hardlock at odd places, but
this thing is known to have a bit of drain bamage :slight_smile:)

Any clues?
