Symptoms

  Following installation, OS/2 displays the new logo screen and
  hangs.


Hardware

  Any.


Problem

  IRQ conflict.


Fix

  Ensure that no two adapters share an IRQ setting.  To help
  determine which driver is being loaded at the time of the hang (and
  thus which adapter may be a part of the problem ), re-boot and
  press Alt-F2 when the "boot-blob" (small white rectangle in the
  upper left corner of the screen) appears. This will list each
  driver as it loads.


Notes

  If the hang occurs later in the boot process, try adding /V
  parameters to various drivers; this may yield additional
  information about which drivers are or are not operating as
  expected.
