I think the only way to get the two to coexist is to make the partitions with DFSee first with the correct partition types.  This does two things, a) it stops windows messing about with the partitions because it does not 'see' the JFS or HPFS partitions and is therefore restricted to the NTFS partition.  The only drawback is the windows takes the C: partition - I think there is a way of hiding that but can't be bothered finding it. b) it gives you control of your hard disk otherwise windows installer will take over everything.

I don't know about win 10 but with win 7 you need to use the advanced install just to confirm that it is using the correct partition.

That would explain why I have been unable to install ArcaOS on my Biostar X370GTN ITX board, the PCIe slot is needed for the graphics card.

The main part of the problem with the AM4 boards is the use of ASMedia chips for dedicated AHCI and some USB (I have discovered that AMD also use modified ASMedia designs in their support chipsets for Ryzen and A10 and A12 CPU/APU and until the ASMedia variant is incorporated into the ArcaOS OS2AHCI. we don't have much chance of using the Ryzen processor to the full.

Hi Martin,

I just went through that exercise and found the same as you (win 7).

I ended up using DFSee to make the partitions with the first one on the disk for win 7, then my usual utilities, programs, work and home partitions with ArcaOS boot partition at the end. I also include a win32 partition for transfers between OSs.

Installed win 7 then installed ArcaOS and finally AirBoot.  The fact that ArcaOS boots from H:\ is no problem, just have to remember that, and C:\ is blank, must work out how to hide it.

This is on an ASRock AM1H-ITX board with an AMD 3850 quad core APU.

Thanks guys.

It looks like a long task which ever way I go and now I have retired I don't have the night shift to do such things  ;)

Hi Lars,

I couldn't agree more with your statement.

I would like to try the OS4 kernel and other programs and drivers but there is nowhere enough information to let me do so - I have been told that it allows the AMD Ryzen processor to work, something I would very much like to happen.

Programming / Templates

I hope this is the right place for this question.

How does one create a template?

I am now moving everything from one of my old computers over to a nice new one I have just built and now I want to create the program objects for the large number of java apps that I use.  What I would like to do is create a template with the Path and File name for java already filled in to save retyping it 50+ times, the other fields can be copied and pasted from a text file.

Another thought

Since I have a text file with all the details, including icon name would it be possible to use something like a rexx script to do everything in one run and if so does anyone have such a script?

Hi David,

What you are seeing with power down and the ramdisk is what you should expect.  What is on a ram drive is lost when the system is powered down - Ramdisks are only there as long as there is power to the ram and the refresh mechanism is working - no power, even for a very short time, results in no ramdrive.

Hi Mark,

Are you trying to setup an OS/2 vbox with win 7 running in it and then trying to setup a vbox instance in that win 7 to run XP?  I don't think that will work and is the reason for message you show.

As far as I know vbox will only run one guest OS at a time although it should be possible to run several vbox instances at once on the host machine.  Note I said should because I'm not sure we can with OS/2 as the host machine.

Hi Ben, send me an e-mail to iv4an7jt at free dot fr  (remove numbers) and I will send it to you, it is too large to be an attachment here.

Hi Ben,

Are you downloading from the link Rolf gave?  I just downloaded it again from that link and the first line of the info text gives  BS_Info  v2.1 beta (13. April 2018)  The Info page of the program also gives that information.

On the other hand if you used the link Pete gave it will give you the older version.

Hi Mark,

Look for the version of Theseus here

Hi Dave,

Do you have a list of all the additional DLLs needed for this to run - no rpm/yum here and your firefox 17.11 has done yeoman service but is starting to barf on some https sites so I will give this a try.

Thank you Valery for the QEMU downloads.  I lost my copy of the 0.9 version when a hard disk went down - now I can get it up and running again.

I have a feeling that this is running in a seamless virtual machine like Qemu and if so where can I get a copy.

As Olafur says it is Intel's way of using its Optane flash drives in raid configuration.  It is also used with NVMe M.2 flash arrays for booting.

Set it to AHCI and hope the driver chip is recognised by OS2AHCI.ADD.  If it is an Intel chip it will be recognised, if it is an ASMedia, or one of the OEM chips they build for AMD Ryzen, forget about it - it won't work.
