Hi, I’m attempting to install QNX for the first time and I’m having some problems. I am using VMWare Workstation 5.5 to emulate a PC for installing. I am using the QNX 6.1 ISO I downloaded from this site (I must use 6.1 for compatibility reasons with my school lab PCs).
In VMWare I created a VM with an 8GB, pre-sized hard drive available.
I mapped the QNX ISO onto the CD drive of the VM.
When I start up the VM I get the following:
Press ESC for .altboot…
Press the space bar to input boot options…
Detected EIDE. Scanninf for devices.
Unable to mount a qnx filesystem as /fs/cd0-qnxbase.qfs on /fs/cd0/boot/fs/qnxbase.qfs (Read-only file system)
No QNX 6.1 or greater filesystems available to mount.
At this point the “install” fails.
I am not sure if this is a QNX or VMWare issue. I am new to both. If anybody has successfully installed under these conditions, or just knows what is going on I could use some help.
I’m not sure if it matters, but my host OS is WinXP.
