I can’t get an image larger than about 525k to work. If it is larger than
that my machine reboots itself when QNX tries to start. Can you tell me
that is a limitation of BIOS, mkifs or of QNX itself?
It’s mostly a limitation of the QNX loader
When RTP 6.1 is

Will RTP 6.1’s mkifs bypass BIOS limitations?

Is there a way to make it bigger than 640K? For some reason, I would

The current loader only support 640K image on x86.
In the next release of RTP, there will be a loader support
image size up to 3MB.
