OS/2 Warp 4 OS/2 Warp 4.52
WinWorld is an online museum dedicated to providing free and open access to one of the largest archives of abandonware software and information on the web.
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
ArcaOS is active, not abandonware, so it won't be added.
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.
And here I come to my problematic cases:
1) I know the official intended procedure for changing the resolution of the virtual screen. However, if I do as described, I will end up with a perfectly messed up system. Simply integrating the appropriate function in VirtualBox would have been too straightforward, I guess ...
2) I installed Micrografx Designer and Picture Publisher (both version 4.0a) on OS/2. Designer, as far as I can tell, runs as expected. But PP opens all pictures only in black and white. Any suggestions to resolve that?
I did this to fill a gap in my knowledge. In the 90s, I had a vocational training that was supposed to be computer-related. This was in East Germany, not too long after the fall of the Wall. Their machines only ran the usual MS-standard ... (and I think that old GDR equipment was also used to save money). Even then, back in those days, as I read about OS/2 in the magazine "In'side Multimedia" (3/96), I preferred to have this as system on my PC. But there was no way for me to get it.
Where can we get the "4.52 build 14.106 W4" from 2007? Do you have to buy eComstation or something? To get it..
