I have an old 2GB maxtor hard disk that runs QNX 3.21. It also has Windows 95 installed on it. QNX 3.21 is installed on partition 3 which boots by default, press 4 to boot partition 4 which has win 95 on it. The system does boot to QNX, but with many errors.
I need to replace the hard drive but I do NOT have any QNX 3.21 install disks. I was able to hook the old 2GB hard drive up in windows and saw that it has 2 partitions, a 1.7GB fat16 partition first with windows on it, then following it a 211MB partition I’m assuming with QNX on it (windows reads this partition as not formatted)
I was able to boot Ubuntu and use the dd command to make an image of the 2GB hard disk. I then used the dd command to take this image and put it on a 10GB drive. When I try and boot the 10GB drive, it just says Missing Operating System when it tries to boot partition 3. When I try to boot partition 4, it gives me a boot failed, it won’t let me boot to windows either.
I don’t know much at all about QNX but I need to get this working. Any help would be extremely appreciated. Keep in mind, the original 2GB HDD is actually booted sitting at the QNX prompt right now, but I am not familiar with any commands.
By the way, we have these “backups” on 60MB tapes but I have no clue where to go about restoring them to a new hdd.
