We are using an Intel motherboard D945GNT in a rack-mounted enclosure. We
put the components together ourselves, so there is no one brand involved.
The Neutrino issues we have with this setup are:
The on-board graphics chipset does not work in accelerated mode. This is
ok (for now, at least), as the project does not currently have a GUI. For
development purposes we bought a PCI graphics card, which won’t be in the
The on-board network chipset does not have a Neutrino driver. We are
using a PCI NIC instead.
SATA drives do not work with the motherboard interface in SATA mode.
There is a BIOS setting to put the SATA interface into “Legacy” mode; this
allows a SATA drive to be used with the Neutrino EIDE driver.
Otherwise, it seems to work well.

I hope that this is the right place for this post.
We are just starting a quick development project. We are adding a new
control server into a large existing system. It will connect to the rest
the system over a TCP/IP socket connection.
We plan to use QNX on redundant rack mounted PC’s - we have no need for
blazing speed, reliability is most important.
The question is - does anyone have a suggestion for a rackmount PC
(preferable 1U or 2U) that is fully compatible with QNX Neutrino. We
developing on a Dell (non rackmount) and had trouble with the SATA hard
drive. We are just looking straight forward PC that QNX is not likely to
have issues with.
