Hello,

I'm trying to install OS2/Warp 4 from CD-ROM, using instructions from http://www.os2usr.org/w4bootcd.html
When my computer starts up with the bootable CD-ROM, the installation starts up... and it ask me to insert the OS2/Warp CD-ROM, that was already in. (The bootable CD-ROM)
I think that the problem is related with the location of installation files..., so I hope that someone can tell me the correct folder where I have to load the *.dsk files in the bootable CD-ROM.

I will look on my installation diskettes for the directories. I keep thinking I will but forgetting to do so. I will try to remember.

Have you tried using the installation diskettes upgrade from the latest fixpak or from the IBM site? You might be able to boot from the cd-rom but it might be easier to make the diskettes if it asks for them.

hello,

this problem was introduced with the latest build (Im still figure out why this happened...). But you can solve this problem easily by entering a different driver letter for your CD/DVD drive in the dialog. If there is another bug in phase3 please let me know. Thanks
