Default install of warp ver 3


Hi guys + gals..

need help with something..

I am trying to install warp 3 on my second hard disk

Here's the situation:

1st hard disk is 18gig ata/33 with win98, redhat linux 6.0, beos
2nd hard disk is 80 gig ata/100 with red hat 7.1, winxp pro, qnx, and
unallocated space (part of the last remaining sections of the hard disk
[approx 13 gigs])

what I'd like to do is setup os2 warp ver 3 in the unallocated space, but
having a hard time as to what type of installation disk configuration I
need. I've gotten the IDEDASD package downloaded from
http://www7.software.ibm.com/2bcprod.nsf/ and I managed to get to the screen
that chooses between the easy installation or the advanced installation.
When I select the advanced installation, I get various errors, with the last
error related to the fdisk program..

Is there anything further am I missing here? Is there a place where I can
get the updated install disks?

Hope you can help me out. I should get the exact error message later on..

George

Default install of warp ver 3


So you want to install W3 beyond 67 GB, right?

The following assumes (I've never tried) that the Warp 3 kernel &
-loader support booting from far beyond 8 GB.

If you try to install plain (="unfixpacked") Warp 3 beyond the first 2
GB, you'll need GT2GBW3.ZIP package (Hobbes) to fix the boot sector
installer, otherwise you cannot even reboot during the installation phase.
But you didn't get that far yet.

If you want to install W3 on a primary partition, perhaps you'll succeed
if you use at least the DANIS506.ADD and DANIDASD.DMD stuff (from
Hobbes), perhaps also DANIATAPI.FLT. Delete IBM1S506.ADD, OS2DASD.DMD &
all SCSI drivers (most of the *.ADD stuff), also from the snoop list, to
make space on the boot floppies, and adapt CONFIG.SYS. If you use
DANIATAPI, also remove IBMDECD.FLT and IBMATAPI.FLT. Be sure that all
the DANI drivers are copied to the hard disk too, and that the installed
CONFIG.SYS on the hard disk loads them (delete references to
IBM1S506.ADD and OS2DASD.DMD) ==> always check this, starting before the
first reboot during installation.
Hopefully Warp 3 can be booted by your current boot manager then.

In case of a logical partition, more is needed:
- An OS/2 boot manager, always on a primary partition slot. It may need
to be on the 1st disk (correct me if I'm wrong please), anyway it can be
booted by you current boot manager;
- fixed FDISK / IDEDASD / OS2DASD stuff from IBM, in the EXPARTW4.EXE
package ("Extended Partition support for Warp 4"). Better use the
DANI506 / DANIDASD stuff, but even then you'll need the fixed FDISK from
the EXPARTW4 package (actually it is the boot manager which must be
fixed through using FDISK, to be able to boot from above 8 GB).

Please let us know if it works; I have vague plans to do similar things. Philip

Just found other messages earlier in c.o.o.s.misc ("SuSe under Boot
Manager part II") which indicate that:

- the EXPARTW4.EXE stuff which I suggested is broken w.r.t. booting
logical partitions on 2nd and higher hard disks;

- the regular boot manager installed by FDISK may be able to boot from
beyond 8 GB anyway, depending on your BIOS INT13 support. BUT if the
OS/2 boot manager is booted by another boot manager, it's INT13
support/usage may be lost.

If all this is true, your only option may be to install W3 on a primary
partition on disk #2, if you got a primary slot left there. (You may try
to) boot it right away using whatever boot manager you now use.
You can make this partition using Linux fdisk, assigning it a type hpfs
("07") -- I did more or less the same on one of my boxes here.

If FDISK can't make the partition "installable" things get more complex.
In that case, according to
http://www.os2voice.org/VNL/past_issues/VNL1203H/vnewsft.htm
try to find out what drive letter OS/2 FDISK assigns to it, add "SET
INSTALLDRIVE=<drive_letter:> to the CONFIG.SYS file on the floppies, and
cross your fingers.
If FDISK doesn't even show a drive letter, you are out of luck. You will
then have to make room for W3 at the beginning of one of your disks. W3
itself needs a bare minimum of just 250 MB or so, depending on apps.

I'm sorry for the confusion. Just give it a try with the other info I
gave you,

Philip

Not on Warp 3, with any fixpack up to and including 40.
