Hi !
I just found an old package of IBM OS/2 2.11 (German) at home.

1.
As I tested all floppies, I found the following curruptions inside the package:
IBM OS/2 2.11 Installation Disk (Disk0)----Bootsector and the file EA.Data.SF (hidden)
IBM OS/2 2.11 Disk 1----Bootsector

Would it be possible if someone else also owns IBM OS/2 2.11,
could give an image of his Installation Disks 1 & 2?
You can make an exact copy of it by using Rawwrite which is a windows freeware programme!

2.
Is it possible to run OS/2 2.11under VmWare for Windows?

Toby

PS:
I know that I'am asking you for a copy of licencend software,
but I only need the Bootsector and the file EA.Data.SF from it.
I will delete all the other files anyway,
because I don't think that it would work if I use the English version of Disk 0 & 1
and then later the German version of all other Disks for the installation of OS/2 2.11.

Please be careful that if you use rawwrite, to turn the tab from write to read!!

Hi Toby,

Run chkdsk /f from OS/2 on the floppy. do not do this Windows or any other non-OS/2 system as it will corrupt the Extended Attributes file. Type chkdsk without any parameters in a command window for help. Best wishes for a happy, healthy, OS/2.
