I have a strong suspicion of what is going wrong, but first a short little tale.

I have an old Dell server, a Quad PIII system. I was running QNX 6.2.1 on it for some time but with a problem. The Adaptec driver was unreliable with the multi-processor kernel. So I was limited single processor.

So I was very motivated to upgrade to 6.3.0 when it came out because I was told the problem might be fixed. When I tried booting the 6.3.0 CD it did just what you described. So I instead tried copying the system over from another computer running 6.3.0. This time when I booted off the hard drive, the same things happened.

It occurred to me that there was some problem with the size of the .boot file. I created my own custom .boot file, throwing out all those extra hard disk drivers that I didn't need or use, and then all was good.

So I suspect you are running into a limit that has to do with loading into your system. Your options might include throwing something else out of your image, or trying to find something to compress.
