  • Netware 4.2 seems to be broken; I'm trying to install it in VirtualBox, and it hangs after copying the installation files to the hard disk (this is the case whether I choose a simple or a custom installation).

  • Looks like 4.2 works in VMware (Netware 4 is not "officially" supported, but it does install, albeit I don't have a license disk).

    I managed to get this version running in Qemu.

  • Novel Netware 4.11 CD isn't recognised as an ISO9660 image.

    I managed to fix/convert using the iat tool on Ubuntu:


    $ iat netware_4.11.iso netware_4.11_fixed.iso

    Done

    The new image ceated is now recognised by Qemu.

  • Not sure if relevant here but. Downloaded the Netware 4.11 iso from this site, extracted to installable cdrom. Under DOS 6.22 the install starts and then fails after approximately 60% through the file copy process to the \nwserver directory. Do I need to extract this image in some particular way? This is strictly through an MSDOS environment on an IBM 300 PL utilizing a Pentium 3 cpu. Thank you in advance.

  • Repackaged the 4.11 ISO, give it another try now.
