After a few years of not running OS/2, I have decided to put together an OS/2 box - but I am having installation issues...
After a number of unsuccessful attempts to load Warp 4, I thought I'd try Warp 3. It installed mostly fine.
I believe the issue is related to the IBM1S506 file. I tried the install with updated disk files (IBM1S506, DANIS506, the FLT files, etc.). The last driver I ('think I') see flashing by (after the ALT-F2 sequence) is IBM1S506.SNP. I have tried the Warp 4 install on both IDE and SCSI only systems.
I have the proper SCSI drivers in on disk 1 and in the disk 1 config.sys file.
Why will Warp 3 install, but Warp 4 won't?
Is the location of the setcopyfromfloppy statement in the config.sys file important?
I once REM'd out the IBM1S506.add file from the config.sys file (on the SCSI install attempt), but the install still stopped at this point.
Are there any load-order specific lines that must be in place in the config.sys file?
Does anything need to be changed on Disk 0?
I have followed a number of threads here on OS/2 world and elsewhere (IBM's site, the net, etc.) but nothing seems to get me to where the hard disks (either IDE or SCSI) are accessed by the Warp 4 installation.
Regarding my Warp 3 installation. It installed and runs fine, except that my CDROM isn't accessible. Am I simply missing a driver in the \os2\boot subdirectory?
