Booting QNX on x86

I have downloaded the evaluation package 6.3.0 to develop under QNX for
QNX. The computer has bootable partitions for Windows and Redhat 9.0. I
have loaded QNX into another partition.

Now what? How do I get my X86 computer to run QNX so I can do
development under QNX?

Thanks if you can help,
Fred Hansen

During the installation process you will be given the choice of installing
the QNX primary boot loader or not. If you installed the QNX boot loader
then the next time you boot up your system you should automatically boot
into QNX.

If you did not apply the QNX Boot loader then you will have to configure
whatever boot loader you are using to see the QNX partition.

Joe

Thanks for your answer.

I do not have the QNX loadeer because I want to keep GRUB. Where do I
tell GRUB to start loading from. The documentation talks about .boot and
…/altboot, but I cannot find those files anywhere. Is it one of the
files in /qnx/target/qnx6/x86/boot/sys ?

Where should I be looking in the documentation?

You will have to modify the /etc/grub.conf file under Linux by adding a
section there like:

title QNX
rootnoverify (hd0,3)
chainloader +4

where (hd0,0) identifies the hard-disk and the partition no.

See man grub & info grub (in Linux) or type help on the grub commandline
for more details.
