I give up. I can't install QNX for the life of me.

I have lost count on the number of time that I have tried to installQNX and keep getting problems. I have tried every option that isavailable to me but absolutly nothing has worked.

My HD is completely blank and I only have 1 partition with variousformats that were tried to get QNX to bite. I can't boot by cd-rom soI boot by floppy disk and I get the following error: ===========================detected eide. scanning for devices.

/.diskrrot file for root not found on any filesystem.

starting with safe modeunable to locate fs-pkg.

=========================== after this the computer freezes...

I tried to force the install and I get the following: ============================restarting driver and mounting filesystemsunable to mount /dev/hd0 partition installation aborted!============================ I have tried changing the settings on my CDROM drive and Hard drivefrom master/slave to slave/master and nothing. I have turned of DMAsettings in my BIOS. I have turned off many BIOS settings thinkingthat they are some how affecting the communication between QNX and mydevices....

nothing.

the only thing that I have not tried is switch my CDROM drive withanother CDROM drive. I have a RW-CDwriter and perhaps this is screwingup something.

But I have installed QNX before....thru windows. It appears that I canonly install QNX thru windows but I cannot do a true blue QNX install.

my system is the following: Celeron 333a(overclocked to 450)20GB HDCDwriter(RW)NEC monitor300MB memory(PC100)ABIT motherboard BX6 any suggestions??? -jer

btw, you can now install qnx 6.2.1 into FAQ also: http://www.openqnx.com/Article213.html
