OS/2 3.x 3.0


  • Cannot install IBM OS2 Warp 3.0 (Bluebox Edition) (3.5), it have internal error 03

  • Internal error 03 often occurs if the hardware has more than 64 MB of RAM or larger than 4 GB IDE drive. There was a set of replacement install disks that permitted use of larger hard disks over at WarpDoctor.

    Otherwise, you will have to describe the system used for the install. It is a trifle challenging to figure out issues without information.

  • Warp connect is 3.1 version, according to tcmdos2.exe In any case, the difference between OS/2 Warp and OS/2 Warp Connect are similar to Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups 3.11

  • Warp 3 Blue Spine is not bootable on my system. I don't see any boot disks.

  • Were there ever Convenience Packs for Warp 3? If not, would someone be willing to upload updated Warp 3 (3.00 - 3.99) versions....? Thank you in advance.
  • I don't think there were any.
  • Unfortunately. :( I wonder if anyone would be willing to upload updated Warp 3 editions, though....
  • What is the max ram?

    The Warp 3.0 blue spine doesn't have boot disk images in the archive, but you can make floppies (in an emulator like 86box) by booting into a dos installation and running "cdinst.bat" from the root of the cdrom drive and creating two 1.44 meg images (an install image and an boot image).
  • I found bundle box of OS/2 3.0 with bonus pack in 3.5 diskettes to rescue (I hope all of them can be salvaged)
  • if you want to install blue spine in a VM, you will need to have a program like dosbox-x or 86box as rliegh suggested, or if you're using a more conventional emulator, say virtualbox or vmware, you will need to create a dos machine first, then install blue spine on there, because there's virtually no boot disk on here
  • Will it work on my Compaq DeskPro EP 6400 with 327mb ram and 125 meg hard disk for os/2 only?
