I guess I am in the same position as many new installers and users of a QNX RTOS, as a number of these postings are about boot problems.
I have just installed the Momentics Neutrino 6.3 IDE for Windows host and am now looking to create an x86 Target for QNX evaluation purposes. The VMWare route seems a reasonable option as I think I can get around the physical disk visibility issue. The question is, having created a spare partition, where do I get a suitable Neutrino boot sector to load as a VMWare Virtual Machine?
I have a multi-boot system with several OS options already and I do not want to screw up the existing boot menu and MBR with a new installation. The CD created from the QNX download seems to install a host only, not target system files. If there are files there for creating a bootable target, the documentation does not make clear which they are.
Could someone help me on this please, and confirm if the VMWare route is a better starter option than getting an embedded target board with BSP from the outset?
