Hi Eugene,
Are you saying you don't have a backup of all installed software you have.  I have two NAS boxes one is for the software I have so I can reinstall if needed, the other has disk partition images created  by DFSee in case a disk goes down so I can replace the disk and restore the partitions.

Sorry Rich, I have had it set to read OS2.INI almost since it first became available that I considered it to be the default setting.

I think the main problem is that most of the ini cleaners only look at OS2.INI not OS2SYS.INI.  Almost all of them do a good job of cleaning up OS2.INI but iniedit120 is the only one I have found that allows looking at OS2SYS.INI.

XFIX from XWORKPLACE is also very good at cleaning OS2.INI but doesn't do OS2SYS.INI which is a pity.

Looks as if you need to have a look inside it and remove the extraneous junk.

I have attached iniedit120 which will allow that (you have to select os2sys.ini from the menu).

Did you need to switch off the 16 threads on that MB, I had to on my MSI B550 board.

I think you are using the wrong tool to read the ini file.

Saying it is HINI user profile it sounds as if that has been written by Peter Moyland's program to make ini files human readable.  if that is the case all you need is a text editor to read it.readable.

Has anyone looked at win95key to change/add characters, it allows me to do such things like having the euro symbol.

Eugene,  I must confess I haven't a clue about what type of M.2 the stick I'm using is.  It was salvaged from a windows 11 computer that caught fire, don't ask how, I just cleaned it up which took off all distinguishing marks then used the replacement computer to run DFSee to wipe it and partition it before trying it in my computer.

I was surprised that it worked and is still working.  It starts up faster than any other comp I have but I did have to fiddle with the bios to get it accepted.

I had no problems installing on to a M.2 stick although I will say doing that seems to preclude using a normal HD for storage.

Sorry, but my philosophy is 'if it is working why change it, unless there is some earth shattering innovation'.

Since no one has mentioned earth shattering like dumping rpm/yum for warpin wpi there is nothing to get excited about.

Hi Rick,

What do you mean it 'wiped out your drive'?  It shouldn't touch anything but your boot partition unless you made the whole drive as one partition.

My setup has several partitions, see attached, plus 2 other 2 tb drives.  That setup is from the days of OS/2 Warp v4 with the only changes being to the 'C' boot partition.

So we have pricing but my question is - is there anything earth shattering that would make me want to buy it, considering my practise of 'if it isn't broke, don't fix it'.  5.0.7 works on my computer and does everything I want so I am not considering upgrading  unless there is something outstanding in the new version.

A final comment on this subject.

It appears that all the free france fibre units are on the 192.168.1.xx subnet and there is no way of changing that but I have managed to find a way round that.

TP Link produce a unit (TL R600VPN_UG) that can be configured to take a WAN address and put it on to a LAN address which defaults to the 192.168.0.xx subnet.  So almost all of my equipment is now reachable, printers, other computers, in fact all but the NAS boxes which appear to not like the work-round.

Since ArcaOS 5.0.7 works well for me on everything up to my Ryzen third generation box I can't see any reason to go to version 5.1 unless they change the underlying OS/2 to a 64 bit OS.

Hi Pete,

I agree that would be the logical thing to do but for some strange reason what I have appears to be hard-wired into the unit something to do with the extra unit the installers gave me.

The new freebox should be arriving today and hopefully I can set that up to run everything on my network (be nice to have access to the printers back).
