Has anybody experience in using different boot partitions on their laptop.
I would like to establish a small runtime QNX partition, a larger QNX
Neutrino Development partition and the remaining disk to be partitioned to
Windows XP. Is this possible and what do I have to look out for?
Should be possible. I currently have my laptop partition for a large
XP partition, a moderate Neutrino dev partition, and 3 partitions for
Linux (boot, main, swap).
Things to watch out for – installers that steal some/all the
partition space, or wipe out other OSes.
You’ll also want to be careful about the primary loader – the QNX
one allows you to select a partition at boot time, the windows one
does not, and windows installations have a tendency to wipe out the
existing primary loader.
If you can install XP using a Fat32 filesystem (rather than NTFS,
which is I think the default), you can access the Windows filesystem
from under Neutrino.
