I recently moved to a new machine at home and decided to install QNX/NC on
old 300MHz PII machine. It has an IDE CD/RW drive and a pair of 17GB SCSI
drives attached to an Adaptec card (2930 UW, I believe).
There is nothing I can do to get QNX to install on this machine.
If I boot off a QNX 6.1 CD (yes, done 6.2, too), it alternately has
trouble finding my CD-ROM drive and after it announces it has found
a SCSI card, fails to find any disk drives.
If I install under Windows and boot with a floppy disk, things go well
up to the point it asks me what video card I’ve got (Matrox Millenium II)
and the system hangs. I can’t select any options with the mouse (MS wheel
mouse on PS/2 port).
This is a fairly old machine and the devices are fairly well-respected
(adaptec, matrox, PII, etc.).
