ok, so lastly we are planning for QNX 6.5 upgrade, i am planning to Get dell R310 with simple SATA Controllers (no RAID what so ever)
the Dell R310 i have has the fake raid PERC S300, i’ve disconnected it from board, and disabled it in bios, and put the SATA mode to ATA (only 2 options available ATA & RAID), and connected the harddrive directly to SATA board
QNX while booting detected as EIDE device
QNX 6.5 installed fine, but here is the issue: (Slow I/O ?)
- during installation copying from CD to hardware was going like bursts of data, copying 5% and will hold like for 10 secs
- the same thing i noticed while copying or extracting Archive from External USB drive to the HDD
- the same issue with extracting an archive that exists on the harddrive it self
is it an Intel 3420 chipset issue ?
