QNX Neutrino booting problem - Disc fails

Hi,

I installed Neutrino in a PC104+ system with Western Digital Caviar 22100
hard disc, and an NEC CD-ROM drive. However, each time system stops booting
due to “disc fail(40)”, and if I press F1 system will continue the booting.

Could anyone please tell me what might be the problem? This will not happen
if I boot with the QNX 4.0 for the hardware. Please let me know if you need
any other information regarding the system.

Thanks a lot,
Chang

Hi Jeff,

Make sure that both the CDROM and the HD are not sharing the same ID
(master/slave). Also try a different disk to see if the problem still
occurs.

Best regards,

Erick
