I wonder how many other operating systems can one install on this? It indicates Linux and Windows 10.

I think it is neat and compact. It is like a tablet computer with a keyboard.

I wonder if one could install OS/2 Warp, eComStation or ArcaOS onto it?

I think it is a neat little computer.

Hardware / ArcaOS 5.00 on an Lenovo IdeaPad?
« on: October 12, 2018, 03:20:58 am »
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad that I am trying to install ArcaOS 5.0 on. It gets to 'internal revision 14.200_SMP' and stops. It goes no farther. It was on sale at Best Buy store (said it did not have a power adapter but it was in the box).

Lenovo IdeaPad 120S_14IAP
BIOS 6GCN20WW
MIM 81A5001UUS
Lenovo SN F82819E1-E701-0818-062808000000
CPU Intel Celeron CPU N3350 @ 1.10GHZ
SYSTEM MEMORY 2048 MB
eMMC CARD SANDISK iNAND 32GB
PREINSTALLED OS LICENSE SDKOJ91216 WIN
OA3 KEY ID 3259110085699
OA2 N

BOOT MODE LEGACY  - OPTION UEFI
BOOK PRIORITY - LEGACY OPITON UEFI

SATA SSD
eMMC CARD SANDISH iNAND 32GB

This is the information I copied from the bios. I will check the box to see if there is any more information there.

I had tried it on another computer. It installed but with limitations. This IdeaPad is bigger and newer.

I tried to change the settings on the installation of the ArcaOS but the keys did not seem to function - the tab did for a short time but it froze up.

Any help would be appreciated.

It indicates it is a 'pocket pc' since it has an X86 processor. Perhaps this means it could run different operating systems?

General Discussion / OS/2 at WinWorld Libary?
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:37:45 am »
I was at another forum and found this link. It is WinWorld Libary. They have an OS/2 section.
https://winworldpc.com/library/operating-systems
They also have a section for DOS / CP/M, Windows and Apple/MAC, *nix and 'other OS and Shells'. They have files for these operating systems that one can download. Has anyone tried any of them?

Hardware / ArcaOS 5.0 on an Aspire One Computer.
« on: October 01, 2017, 12:18:27 am »
I finally got around to trying the ArcaOS 5.0 operating system. It is on an Aspire One D255E with an Intel Atom N455 (1.6 ghz) with 512 KB cache, 1 GB DDR3 memory, 250 GB HDD, and a 6 cell Li-On battery. It has sound. I can use an USB mouse. I don't think it sees / detects the wifi port.

I tried to change the wallpaper but I have yet to find where it is that changes it.

With eCS, it did not see a flash drive that was attached. I will see if it does or does not.

I am so glad it works with it. The next step is to tweak it. Perhaps upgrade to 5.01? I will try different software with it. It can use the USB optical drive.

I am one happy nerdy camper.

I think this is neat. I like the 'eraser head' track pin. I like it better than using the touchpad. I am still trying to get used to a touchpad but I prefer using a mouse; wireless nowadays. Perhaps call it retro?

General Discussion / Change the Forum Headings?
« on: December 05, 2016, 05:54:45 pm »
Perhaps one could change the forum headings from 'OS2 eCS' to OS2 eCS BL' so that Blue Lion is considered part of it?

I hope they succeed. It would be nice to see a newer version of OS/2 - eCS.

It says the name is only the project name.

General Discussion / no new registrations?

I was at the Thinkpad forum and one person was indicating no new registrations at OS/2 World. Is there no new registrations?

I think this is way cool. It has exceeded the amount of money they were looking to raise.

I think this will be cool.

Perhaps replace the Shell logo with either a OS/2 Warp, eComStation or Arae Noae logo? It would seem that Apple isn't the only software company coming out with a car? (besides Google and their self driving car).
