ok now , is there an option to install the QNX boot loader into the first
sector than to the MBR , the way most linux installations does.
ie is there an option which says ‘dont install’ QNX boot loader or ‘install
on first sector’ ?..
i dont want to start the install and get screwed … yes the win boot disk
is a good [and last] option i guess

it will rewrite MBR’s
startup code (QNX loader lives in MBR); if you select your own loader (it
was an example LILO in
QNX 6.0, I don’t know how exactly this question sounds in 6.1
installation) it will only creat
MBR’s partition entry for QNX partition (and, perhaps, it will mark QNX
partition as active, it was
so in 6.0). So, you want to creat NT boot floppy and use NT’s windisk to
change back active
partitions after QNX installation, or use any other method you know > > .
You could use DOS’s “fdisk
/mbr” to restore MBR’s startup code for some ocassions.

I have a Win2k Installed drive with 20GB space, I want the Win2k boot
to handle the boot up process even after QNX is installed.
the best option i guess is :
a.) create qnx boot floopy while install
b.) boot using this disk, use the dd command and create a boot image,
c.) copy this boot image to a floppy,
d.) edit boot.ini in win2k. to point to this image.
Don’t forget to copy a 512 bytes image from floppy to NT boot partition
that sounds ok. now the problem is before i start , i have a query … >
