Long time reader first time poster. I am having intermittent issues with booting a QNX 6.3 OS. It seems that every 1 in 2 or 3 reboots the bootup script has trouble detecting the HD.
We are using a SATA drive, and during the bootup sequence i get this message:
Trying SATA mvSata Scanning for Devices…
./diskroot file for root not found on any file system
Then the system hangs up and can’t get any further.
I can shut the box down, wait 10 min, and boot it back up and it will not have that problem anymore, making the issue a little harder to diagnose.
I believe that there may be a race condition, or timing issues with the SATA driver and HD not being ready before the boot up runs.
Was wondering if i could use a “wait” command to make sure the HD was ready before searching for the diskroot file.
Thanks for any input.
