I finally got around to trying the properly made installation disc. I was using an USB optical drive. It didn't install. It didn't do much at all. I still had the 5.0.7 version and have yet to get the 5.1 version.

I created an USB installation. I used a program called ISO to USB. It was free to use, at 'ones own risk'. It seemed to have worked in making the USB like an installation disc. It didn't install the OS unto the laptop computer. I will need to get the 5.1 version and will give it another try.

the below is just me complaining and wishing;
I miss computers having an optical drive. I wish there were more USB ports on some of these computers.

Off Topic discussions / John Poole Software Operating System/5?

I came across this video and website showing called OS/5 by John Poole Software. I thought it was interesting.
One can still download it?
Here is the information on it from the video on YouTube
OS/5 is a Shareware PC operating system based on a Microsoft programming language that itself was rarely used. Intended to be an inexpensive, lightweight alternative to Windows, OS/2, and other graphical user interfaces, OS/5's Desktop runs in text mode while retaining many GUI features. Created by John Poole and released in 1996, two versions of it are known to exist, and would have been lost entirely if I had not saved them over 25 years ago, because they have not been archived anywhere online and trying to search for OS/5 or its author will turn up nothing except this video.

Download OS/5 version 1.0:

It was down for me for awhile. I just tried it (07-02-2023 PM) and it seems to be coming up. Please give it a try to see if it works for you too.

I checked my installation disc and realized that I had copied the ISO file to the disk and did not create an installation disc. I have created the installation disc and will give it a try.

side note; I was able to get to the Arca Noe site. It finally came up for me.

more progress notes to come.

I found the hyper threading and legacy boot in the bios. They are greyed out. I am unable to turn them off. I have not found the CMS, yet (still looking).
I think I might have messed up the boot part. would updating the bios help?

It is not easy going to the settings but I don't remember seeing those but I will check again.

Thanks for the information.

I have a HP EliteBook 803 G3 that I am trying to install the ArcaOS 5 on. I have an USB optical disc drive attached. the laptop doesn't have an operating system on it; none whatsoever. I got it to seemingly boot from the USB optical drive but it doesn't seem to go farther than that. I tried to get it to boot from the optical drive but it doesn't. could my optical disc be a problem? should I make another disc? should I try making a bootable USB flash drive? what size flash drive should I use?  8)

I am looking forward to using ArcaOS on this laptop. Any help given will be appreciated. Thanks.
