QNX 2.21 Arrived Today

(note this is a guest post from Tenox)

So that QNX 2.21 from the previously established purchase fund has arrived today. As an added bonus, I expected 4 x 5.25″ disks, but the media turned to be a single 3.5″ floppy disk. So it’s better suitable for more modern 286 machines and emulators.

I have imaged the floppy to a raw disk dump and booted in VMware Workstation for verification.

The floppy disk image was sent to those who contributed in the previous post.
Manuals are always available here.

Update: the floppy disk image is here…

    • No it doesn’t. It’s a separate product same as say Windows 1/2/3.x would be to MS-DOS. I don’t have the media either, but have a backup taken from a working system with QNX Windows. I will make that available at some stage.

  1. Is the offer of an image of the floppy still good? I am in need of a boot disk for
    QNX and this would be really helpful to me. If the offer of an image is still good I am ready to send $50 for your trouble.

    Thanks in advance!

    • I tried emailing the author to see if he was still interested in providing images but I never heard back from him.

      I even went out and acquired some actual QNX2 licenses, but I don’t have the media so my plans to setup a publicly accessible QNX 2 network for people to visit is unfortunately on hold indefinitely.
