Qnx can work on disquette ?

Thanks for you’re support !!


Bonjour Stephane,

I know of no setup to install QNX by floppy, nor by ftp. Only easy way is by CD any other method can be VERY complicated.

You can make a very stripped down version of QNX to boot/work from floppy but it will be rather useless since there isn’t enough space on a floppy to put anything useful.

With a QNX system installed on a PC, you of course can create all what is necessary to boot the system from a floppy disk (why would you want to do that?) or from a network. But you need to work into boot images, build files and dependencies of components (that even QNX’ own System Builder doesn’t know) to succeed.
