Hi all,
I just got a new pc to play with; it is the HP RP5700. I want to run
instyall OS/2 on the box, as my IBM PC325 is getting a bit old. The
5700 has a Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB ram slotting in DDR2 667Mhz
memory slots. There is a 80Gb SATA hard drive installed with a 16X DVD
+/-RW in the box as well.

When booting the machine with a standard WSeB CD's, and pressing Alt
+F2, the OS/2 load stops with that last message "loading
screen01.sys".

Where should I start to look? I have copied the OS2KRNL from XR_C005
in the CD, with no luck.

I suspect that the problem is that OS/2 will not install to your system
without a bit of fiddling around based on results of Google searches on
"dual core and os/2 install".

You may have some luck in getting the system working by using xcopy to
copy an existing installation to the new drive but you may still need to
"Google" if you run into problems.

An alternative may be an upgrade to eCS1.2R which should install - but
may need the latest "Danis Drivers" to be successful. You may also find
that you need the eCS ACPI driver package to get some onboard devices
working but that requires eCS Software Subscription on top of the eCS
upgrade price.

I don't remember which BLDLEVEL the C005 kernel has, but it may be too
old for a Core 2 processor. I recommend 14.103 or later.

The BLDLEVEL of the C005 kernel is 14.103.

It probably is better that way but I've run a Core 2 Duo processor on 14.100 and
had it work.

I suspect that original poster has (the usual) problems with APM and testcfg.sys

my vague recollection is that the c005 kernel has the final version of the
fixes I had to do for Opterons & P4s. However, there are a couple of
other possibilities. One of them is this trap 0000 that happens due to a
bogus timing loop in os2ldr. To see if that's it, try underclocking your
system by running the FSB at 100mHz or whatever to drastically reduce
the speed. If the system boots, that's the problem, and you're probably
SOL (an os2ldr patch is possible, but I'm not set up to do that any more).

If that didn't help, you may actually be running in to a screen01
problem -- there was (again, I'm getting fuzzy about details) a problem
with allocating enough memory to accomodate video cards with lots (i.e.
Post by Wynand
32mb or 64mb) of onboard RAM. Try reducing the video aperture (in
BIOS) to 64mb or less, or even trying a slow crappy video card to test
out that theory.
