"syspage memory request" error on boot

Post by Tony Nordstrom » Sat Nov 15, 2003 1:12 am

I've done a fresh install of 6.2.1A SE onto a 512 Mb CompactFlash card.
So far so good.
I reboot after removing the CD.
The OS starts loading from the CF, displays the "Hit Esc for
..altboot....." prompt
Then it runs into problems, reporting "Syspage memory request of 1576
exceeds maximum of 1536 bytes." and stops there.

I've installed QNX on similar systems but this is the first time with
this particular brand of hardware (Ampro CoreModule/P5e), and this
particular CompactFlash brand (SimpleTech).

Does anyone have any suggestions? (How do I increase the maximum syspage
memory? Is this a BIOS setting??)

Thanks

This could happen on BIOS not reporting the correct memory amount
(or bios.boot not unable to pick up the configuration);
try DOS-based loadqnx.sys or loadifs.

Calling the sales rep may be the fastest solution, especially
if you have SE.

Thanks Kabe,

The PC104 won't even boot DOS from Compact Flash. It boots from HDD OK
however.
I'm talking with QNX support and the PC104 manufacturer about this.
