I had a similar problem with an Arcom board. It turned out that it was not
compatible with the QNX 6.1.0A startup-bios. Here’s the explanation from
“The problem with the startup-bios that is currently released is x86 startup
does not honor the Extended BIOS Data Area. The miscalculation causes
pci-bios to fail because v86 will not allow code to run from areas
identified as RAM at startup.”
They were able to send me a revised startup-bios that solved the problem.
They said this revision would be included in the 6.2 release. Perhaps
Diamond Systems can confirm or deny that this might be the problem.

Unable to boot from QNX image floppy on a ‘Prometheus’ PC104. Boots from a
Dos disk fine. Appears to freeze after the last dot when booting from a
floppy (.altboot …) using example and custom buildfiles.
Prometheus has Pheonix 1.03 BIOS, console redirection has been changed in
the BIOS to always on serial port 2.
