Selected partition is not formatted
« on: June 12, 2016, 09:15:56 am »
Using LVM I've created a Bootable Primary HPFS partition on Disk2 having booted from Disk 1, and installed a minimal OS/2 installation.

The partition appears on Boot Manager's menu, but when selecting it it says 'Selected partition is not formatted'

What am I missing?

Hi John

Possibly OS2BOOT - this is created by running


where ?: is the drive letter you want to be able to boot. If I remember correctly you need to be booted from a different drive, SYSINSTX cannot be used on the drive the system is booted from.
