I have got quite up-to-date PC HP (XY139EA) Intel Core i5 with Hitachi 500GB SATA HDD and SATA DVD optical drive (IDE emulation for SATA devices in BIOS Setup). During fresh QNX4 install (no other OS, entire disk QNX4 partition, Suite 2011, Fsys.atapi without parameters, -Hdisk500 heapsize in OS image) I understand that dinit on 500GB HDD lasts longer, but when I boot the system:
Hit Esc for altboot…
Path=0 - Generic IDE
target=0 lun=0 Direct-Access(0) - Hitachi HDS72105 Rev: JP20
target=1 lun=0 CD-ROM(5) - hp DVD RW AD-7250H5 Rev: 1HNK
and long-long time nothing. System detects (scans entire?) HDD for terrible 130 seconds. HDD LED lights for that time and is blinking at the end of the time. Then boot continues and everything works.
Is that normal with 500GB disk?
Can I somehow speed-up QNX disk drives detection (some OS parameters)?
