QNX QNX 6.2.1 setup.exe removed the capability of installation into a Windows FAT partition. This article tries to provide a manual way to have QNX installed under FAT partition, with or without burning a CD.

Windows-free install

Inspired by the article, I was able to do a FAT install on a Windows-free machine. It is a RedHat 7.3 workstaion with all ext2/3 partitions. I created a new FAT partition and temporarily mounted it as /mnt/dos. The ISO file is mounted as /mnt/cdrom. dd is used to create the boot floppy from /mnt/cdrom/install/floppy.144
Everything else is pretty much following the article except when creating the root.qfs I used "wine /tmp/dinitw32.exe root.qfs 1500". Hope there will be a Linux version of "dinit".
