I finally got around to doing this.

It went very smoothly thanks to the guide above.

Note: I'm using an EIDE Zhenio drive.

The only snag I ran into was that I had to mount the drive on a computer and create a partition table so the USB interface will recognize my drive. Until then even the USB status LED on my USB to EIDE adapter would not go green, meaning the drive is ready.

Any table will do, but it needs something to start with.

Once done the drive was recognized by Linux and QNX and I was off to the races.

My NAV boots up instantly now. No more delay as it comes up after starting the car.

As soon as the key is in or I start the engine, the map appears.
