  • OS/2 Warp 4.52 comes with a separate boot CD so no dos needs to be preinstalled but the CDs will needed to be swapped BOOT-> Client.

    Unfortunately I get kernel segfault on the physical machine where I try to install this even at the boot CD stage. It is an old 32bit only box with 2.6Ghz cpu but ?maybe? already too new for OS2 :(

    In vmware it installs fine.

    It would be nice if someone would share if Novell 4.11 can be installed on both Warp 4 and 4.52 or not.

    I think that's your problem. I can run MS-DOS on a 64 bit with 2 2.8gHz processors... I have the drive formatted for FAT 16.

  • Um, that's a bit of an old topic, and they were talking about OS/2, not DOS. OS/2 is a lot pickier about hardware.

  • I noticed that IBM OS2 Warp 4.52 (4.52.14.089_W4) version needed a re-dump? I got to a friend of mine who provided me with some isos and bootdisks. I tested them out in Parallels and it didn't seem to have any problems. How should I share it with winworld? I don't have space in my Google drive either to make a shareable link.

  • Try out Mediafire

    Works pretty good on T41. Boot time does take a bit of time however. Anyone else have slightly long boot time at the OS/2 logo? Maybe try out ver. 4.0. Using 4.52 (4.52.14.086_W4)

    No, but I experience the long boot at OS/2 Warp 4.0

  • can some add Arca OS 5 to this page, as it’s based on OS/2 Warp 4 plz?
  • It's still sold, and it is nowhere near abandoned.
  • @DoodlerNitro501
    ArcaOS is active, not abandonware, so it won't be added.
  • What about eComStation?
  • 4.52 (14.086) installed perfectly on a T41. This is the version to go for unless you absolutely need the original 4.0 for some reason. These images are bootable and already have large disc support off the bat. The 4.0 boot floppies require modification to recognise a hard disk over 2GB for installation.
  • I've repackaged the client 4.5x versions and replaced the damaged 14.089_W4 with one that looks like it should work.
  • I got back into OS/2 and ECS (2.1) quite recently. 10 years after my last attempt on that machine, I installed both onto my IBM PC 300GL. Both went quite well, if not slow, but in ECS I couldn't find the multimedia PM that my audio driver told me to install through, so I installed through the main driver installer. Probably why it couldn't boot after that.

    So I tried Warp 4.52 again. Everything is where the driver package told me it was going to be, so it went well. The included Scitech Display Doctor 7.0 works well with my GeForce FX5700 LE, and I have 24-bit colour with a nice refresh rate with my IBM G54 monitor. It does take considerably longer than even Windows 2000 to boot.
  • How can I install this on VirtualBox?
