Below is a list of files necessary to create a 3.5" Boot Disk for OS/2 GA with HPFS support. Sorry but HPFS.IFS makes it too large for 5.25" drives.

Copy sysinstx.com from the Install Disk and run this to copy the hidden file OS2BOOT from your hard drive to a Formatted 1.4 meg floppy. Copy the other files from the appropriate disk to create the boot disk.

OS2BOOT          1099   Created on boot disk by sysinstx.com
OS2KRNL        716044   Copy OS2KRNLI from Install Disk and rename.
OS2LDR          32256   Copy from Install Disk.
OS2LDR   MSG     8440   Copy from Install Disk.
SYSINST1 EXE     4224   All other Files Copied from Disk One.

        36 file(s)    1373409 bytes used
                        70144 bytes free

My CONFIG.SYS files is as follows:

ifs=hpfs.ifs /c:4
buffers=32
iopl=yes
memman=noswap
protshell=sysinst1.exe
set os2_shell=cmd.exe
diskcache=64,LW
protectonly=yes
libpath=.;\;
pauseonerror=no
codepage=850
devinfo=kbd,us,keyboard.dcp
device=\dos.sys
set path=.;\;
set dpath=\;
set keys=on
REM leave out the line below if you do not need to print
basedev=print01.sys
basedev=ibm1flpy.add
basedev=ibm1s506.add
basedev=ibmint13.i13
basedev=os2dasd.dmd

Adding HPFS.IFS allows you to view and manipulate High Performance File System drives.

To use CHKDSK.COM against these drives format a second floppy and copy CHKDSK.COM and UHPFS.DLL to the disk. CHKDSK loads UHPFS.DLL when it gives the message "The HPFS file system program has been started". You could also add CD support to the boot disk by including CDFS.IFS to your boot disk and adding the appropriate IFS= statement to the config.sys. If you do this add UCDFS.DLL to your second "utility" disk for chkdsk, format, etc. to load.
