Usually a .CMD file (and equivalent DOS .BAT) in the root of the CD...

A bit of work with LOADSKF and it'll pop.

How's the Image Quest?

Do I even need Disk 0 then? Just use the two new disks to install?

The three install floppy disks( install disk, sometimes called Disk 0 and
Disk 1 and Disk 2 ) you make off the Warp4 Cd will only allow an
installation of Warp 4 on a HDD up to 4.3 mb.
Go to this site and get a new Disk 1 and Disk 2 to allow an installation of
Warp 4 on larger HDD's.

It's already pissing me off. I had to add country.sys to Disk 1, then it
barfed again with VTB1850, IIRC.

I'll edit config.sys after I cool down.

In my experience Disk 0 is needed.
With your Warp 4 Cd in say D:\
Just type D:\cdinst.bat and follow the instructions to make the three
floppies.
Unfortunately Disk 1 is made first, then Disk 2 is next, with Disk 0 last.
The reason being that Disk 0 is made last because after it is made, you are
instructed to leave Disk 0 in the drive, ctrl+ alt +del to go ahead with the
installation of Warp4 off the CD.
Go on don't by tight, you can afford a couple of extra floppies for good old
big blue.

OK, I remmed out the country and code page stuff, but now it stops hard
telling me it can't load the DLL DOSCALL1->DOSCALL1.1099 The funny,
ha-ha thing is that file (doscall1.dll) is on the same floppy as the
config.sys file.

Wait, config.sys calls for DOS.SYS, which isn't on the floppy. Let's try
copying DOS.SYS to Disk1...

No, that was not it. Time to read for a while on chess.

I think the warp advanced server does things unlike that updated disk set.

What is the difference between Disk1_cd and disk 2?

Hi!


It's possible. Got a copy of "regular" OS/2 Warp 4 sitting around?


Hmmm...not sure I remember exactly. I think one tries to start the CD-ROM
device drivers much earlier than the other, and without the extra disk.

One thing to keep in mind--and you may already know it--OS/2 has very high
standards when it comes to pretty much any computer hardware. If it doesn't
work 110%, (and then some, maybe) OS/2 won't work either. It is also *very*
selective about floppies. I've made boot disk sets with disks that formatted
fine and OS/2 would trap reliably on some sets. Using different disks solved
the problem. I even found the original IBM disks in a sealed OS/2 Warp 4 box
to be bad!

Have a look at Red Books SG244602.pdf and SG244702.pdf
Do a search on "installation disk" in SG244602.pdf
Sorry cannot be more help
Good Luck

If I install on a new machine with IDE/EIDE/SATA, Ill use it. But I saw
no mention of SCSI in the document.

Last night, what started the path to destruction was the system's
unWillingness to accept DISK1_CD as Disk2 during the install process.

Just read Cdinst.bat, no wonder...
"OS/2 Diskette 1" and
\DISKIMGS\LOADDSKF %1\DISKIMGS\OS2\35\DISK1_CD.DSK A: /Y/Q/F

"Installation Diskette" and
\DISKIMGS\LOADDSKF %1\DISKIMGS\OS2\35\DISK0.DSK A: /Y/Q/F

OK, slightly counterintuitive, but

DISK0, then DISK1_CD
