Yes, it is the plan. Can always use other boot managers such as rEFIND.

 Hi Remy,

 Well, at least it works now! Not sure why, but if you uninstalled, then re-installed QT5, I can only guess that there may have been corruption in some configuration file somewhere from the first install. Enjoy!

Setup & Installation / UEFI Boot Manager for 5.1
« Last post by Sean Casey on May 17, 2022, 01:07:15 am »
Is AN going to provide a UEFI capable boot manager with the upcoming 5.1 release?  While one of my ArcaOS/Linux computers will continue using GRUB 2, I have another computer where I would like to boot into two different GUID ArcaOS system partitions.

Just asking to be sure: the machine booted normally before the fixpak was installed?
yes, never got any issues before fixpak installation.

If I remember correctly, early Warp 3 needed to have a BIOS setting (something about booting OS/2 warp) set on, and later versions (including later Warp 3 fix packs) needed that set off. Try both ways, if you find it.

there's no options related to operating system in bios, as i said, this is a PS/2 and it's supposed to be supported by warp 3.
the only bios option i know about OS/2 is related to ram over 64MB. pre warp 4 need it, warp 4 and above not.
and of course, it's not the problem here, as it's a 386sx bus, maximum is 16MB.

Been a long time for me since I have run Warp 3 but I think there is something or somethings you may have to turn off in the Bios. anyone remember?

I uninstalled / installed QT5w* as well dooble with .dooble delete to have initial state ....
And since I could bypass the close/crash state (removing a remote rssfeed load from main home page and loading this feed as a single page), I'm no more able to reproduce it !
Surprizing. what could have changed since I did the "bypass" action ? Is anything stored and where ?  :-\ ::)

so, after fp38 installation, and right after reboot for locked files to be updated, it hang after the boot manager.
all i get is a blinking cursor instead of the OS/2 "blob", keyboard is non responsive too.

It's been a while since I supported OS/2 Warp3, but two ideas...

1. check that os2ldr and os2krnl are there on hard drive.
2. try to run sysinstx c: to make sure system files are where they are supposed to be.
in between, i tried an older FP to see, fixpak 35. i got the same deadend after locked files have been updated. i checked the 2 files, they are in place.
then i run sysinstx from diskette, he did his job, but nothing better. still got "the blinking cursor of the death"

this is an isa based PS/2, there's nothing much you can do in bios. the only thing you can switch is the bios shadowing, and set date/time.
i don't think it's related to that, but who know...
