Installation Notes

If you are trying to install OS/2 Warp 4 (revision 9.023) it is useful for you to get a set of updated diskette images for the Installation Disk 1 and Disk 2. This is important to support bigger hard drivers like 2GB. (or on this case bigger virtual HDD images).

Installing VirtualBox Guest Addons

Without any Warp 4 fixpacks installed, if you want to install VirtualBox Guest Add-ons according to the instrucctions you may get this errors.

When VBOXGUEST.SYS loads on the boot:

Also, when trying load "VBoxService.exe" from Startup.cmd you will get an error that TCPIP32 was not found.

You require to install a fixpack to make that applications work. On this case I installed Fixpack 15.
