WIN XP with RTP

I read the XP posting just above me, but it did not give me any
insight. I am trying to install QNX RTP on a system running WIN XP
(NTFS). I would like to do a partition install, so I created a
partition using System Commander 7 (the partition is 674MB and is near
the beginning of the hard drive). The partition is a free primary
partition. I created the RTP CD and attempted to boot from it and got
the following:

Press Esc for alternate OS…D_ (cursor
continues flashing).

The system hangs here. I then made a boot floppy and used it. It
booted all the way and displayed the following:

No QNX 6.1 or greater filesystems available for mount.

Any suggestions?

I even tried to install QNX 4 on this partition and had problems. The
hardware detection phase seemed to work OK. I got to the point in the
installation where it asked to put in the CD. I did this and it seems
that the CD cannot be recognized (I keep getting the message to insert
the CD and click OK when I perform the Next (F2) operation during the
installation at this point.

System hardware

Network: Realtek 8139/810X (PCI)
Video: Nvidia GeForce 2 MX 100/200

Also, I read where wheel mice have problems with QNX 4 and RTP. Is this
true and is there a way around it?

Thank you.

The partition is a free primary partition.

did you create the primary partition for QNX RTP before winXP? if yes,
i’d suggest you to make it behind winXP. this way it worked on a winNT4
station some weeks ago. and i think it should work at your’s, too.

Have you masterless IDE devices?

Are your IDE-Devices jumpered as “slave”?

I’ve also heard of a problem of QNX RTP 6.1 in a chatroom … that it
refuses to install from one disk controller to another one. In my case this
was from the SCSI-controller (CDROM) to the IDE-1 (HDD). The problem shall
be solved in the forthcoming version 6.2.

I mean IDE device which has jumpered as “slave” but there is no “master” device on the same IDE
channel. This is ILLEGAL :wink:

Sorry Eduard, I do not know what you mean by masterless IDE devices.

The RTP partition was before WIN XP. I moved the partition to the back
(behind XP) and found that when I tried to boot XP from System Commander 7,
the boot started, but froze on the screen before the login screen.
Therefore, I did not try to install RTP (I am moving the partition to the
front again to see if XP can still boot).

Eduard,

I got RTP to install, but the circumstances were very strange. My PC has the following IDE devices
installed:

Hard Disk: Primary (master) on channel (connector) #1
No Device: Secondary (slave) on channel (connector) #1
DVD-ROM Primary (master) on channel #2
CD R/W Secondary (slave) on channel #2

RTP would not install as above. I tried the following:

Removed the CD R/W device - NO HELP
Removed the DVD-ROM and made the CD R/W the master - THIS WORKED!

I was able to install RTP, but now it appears that I have a problem with the mouse. I seems that
the cursor representation is off to the right about 1/2" from the sensed position. In the vertical
direction, there is no problem. Is there some sort of a calibration program that can be used in RTP
for the mouse?

I tried to install QNX 4 as a test (on another partition) using only the CD R/W as a master like
above, but it would not work. When it got to the point in the installation to install the QNX CD, I
did, but it would not recognize it (the screen that said insert the CD and press OK to continue kept
being displayed again when I tried to continue.

Thanks,

Dan Szymanski

Hi Daniel,

I got RTP to install, but the circumstances were very strange. My PC has the following IDE
devices
installed:

Hard Disk: Primary (master) on channel (connector) #1
No Device: Secondary (slave) on channel (connector) #1
DVD-ROM Primary (master) on channel #2
CD R/W Secondary (slave) on channel #2

RTP would not install as above. I tried the following:

Yes, I heard few times about this. Seems DVD-ROMs are the problem for QNXRTP 6.1 installation
procedure.

I was able to install RTP, but now it appears that I have a problem with the mouse. I seems that
the cursor representation is off to the right about 1/2" from the sensed position. In the
vertical
direction, there is no problem. Is there some sort of a calibration program that can be used in
RTP
for the mouse?

I can not tell anything about such program, I don’t know this one. I’d suggest to try the new
devi-hirun driver from developers.qnx.com or play around software/hardware cursor in video
settings. I also heard about this problem on russian forum (forum.qnx.org.ru) but don’t remember
solutions :wink:. As a try you could look around for the new Nvidia GeForce driver as well.
Best regards.
