Just to follow up:
On a Thinkpad T21, hitting space during boot and disabling the plug and play
ISA enumerator managed to get QNX to finish booting. (Thanks to qnx support
for pointing me to this)
Turns out that this left the serial interface unavailable, though. Add this
to the unsupported network card, and I’ve decided that it’s easier to find
Thanks to all for your advice,

Thanks to all for your suggestions. It now seems that the problem has
nothing to do with bootdisks, partitions or filesystems:
I’ve just tried to boot 6.1 directly from the CD, choosing “run from
CD-ROM”. This works on one machine, but on my laptop (*), QNX appears to
hang after printing the following two lines:
/usr/photon/bin/devgt-iographics -dldevg -svga.so -I0 -d0x5333,0x8c12
/usr/photon/bin/devgt-iographics -dldevg -svesabios.so -I0 -d0x5333,0x8c12
Hitting esc when prompted for .altboot resulted in a hung machine.

I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to get 6.1 to run on my IBM T21
Following is a summary of my experience. Any suggestions welcome:
- The laptop has Windows 2000 installed on a FAT32 disk (also has Linux
2.4.3, but that irrelevant), 7GB free.
- I understand that I need to repartition the disk to install QNX,
a colleague has reported success in installing directly under Windows
Trying a Windows install and booting from a diskette results in a system
hang at some stage of the boot process.
- Is there a way to use the Windows 2000 loader to choose between
Linux, and QNX? I’ve currently set it up to select between Win2k and
and would really prefer not to replace it with QNX’s loader (or LILO,
- Writing and verifying the boot diskette is very slow, as well as
to boot from it. The same drive works fine under Win2k and Linux. Has
else had this problem?
