play around. I have VMWare server 1.0.3 installed -- the latest free
version of VMWare. Host OS is Ubuntu 7.04 on one computer, and
Windows XP on a different computer. In both cases, I cannot get past
disk #2 (third disk) from my Warp 4 installation. I always get a trap
shortly after the bootup splash screen. I've now tried OS/2 Warp 4,
Warp 4.52, and eCS v1.2.1.
For eCS, the trap is in ibm1s506 or the Dani driver (depending on
which one I select from the eCS boot menu), or ...os2krnl I think?
I'd have to try again and record the exact location as it currently
escapes me. The trap in Warp v4.52 and eCS v1.2.1 was very simillar I
For Warp v4.00 the trap was in the floppy driver. I upgraded
ibm1flpy.* from an old system I have hanging around and the trap has
simply moved slightly later in the boot process. (I can re-run the
whole thing and record the exact locations and traps if anyone thinks
they can help debug the problem.)
Anyone know the trick to getting some flavour (any!) of Warp v4+
installed in a recent VMWare environment?
