I need to build and load a QNX OS image to a 2GB compact flash (SimpelTech or SandDisk ) that will be used as the hard-drive to our PC104 system. I tried first with the bios.build in “/usr/qnx630/target/qnx6/x86/boot/build/”
The hardware of the system:
Mother board: EBX-Littleboard 800
PC104 Profibus card.
I am using a SanDisk USB2.0 CompactFlash card Reader/Writer to access the Compact Flash. Here are what I did:
1, io-usb -dehci
2, devb-umass cam pnp&
3, fdisk /dev/hd1, I then fdisk the CF as QNX, 77, and I can see it as /dev/hd1t77
4, cd /usr/qnx630/target/qnx6/x86/boot/build/
5, dinit -h -f bios.ifs /dev/hd1t77
after this dinit command, the terminal displays:" Using loader /usr/qnx630/target/qnx6/x86/boot/sys/ipl-diskpc2-flop"
The .boot file is created in the compact flash. I then plug in the compact flash to the CF slot in the PC104 system, but system stops after “Pressing ESC for .altboot…”
I believe that the loader should be ipl-diskpc2 instead of diskpc2-flop, as I tried the same procedure a while ago which worked fine and I remeber the loader was ipl-diskpc2 at that time. But I don’t know why I have diskpc2-flop this time. The only difference is the USB compact flash adapter.
Could anybody give me some instructions on where I might be wrong? Any other information you may need for diagnosis?
Thanks a lot,
