And it works! DOS and WINOS2 on Thinkpad X 250!
« on: September 03, 2019, 01:48:03 pm »
While I am playing around with the Thinkpad X250 I realizide by accident:

I am wondering, I just took a look again at Bug report 1193 in Bugtracker, and on August 20th 2019 David added a file called vio-1.0.wpi and now:

- DOS Fullscreen
- WINOS2 Fullscreen
- WINOS2 windowed

are working on the X250, even in SMP Mode!!

- DOS Windowed mode takes no input (does only show  :/ )
- DOS Windowed mode switched from DOS Fullscreen with Alt+Home starts very slow and freezes after a fiew inputs

It took some seconds more during booting, but it works!

BUT PLEASE NOTICE: It is mentioned in the readme, that it might not work on each and any Hardware!!

Wonder, why this is not mentioned elsewhere!! Great!!

And a question: is it possible to spread this file to other people or is it somehow restricted?

I can confirm that WinOS/2 and DOS full windows session is working also under eCS21.DE if the mentioned wpi is installed.

- Fullscreen both working
- Windowed none
