After using 7-zip to extract the .IMZs to .IMAs, installed in VirtualBox 5 without a single hitch.

2nd disk of 3 (disk1) could not find COUNTRY.SYS, even after I replaced it from another disk. Does anyone have any ideas why? I checked the path= and dpath= in CONFIG.SYS.

I get the following error when trying to install with VirtualBox in Linux.
VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration is not available on your system. Certain guests (e.g. OS/2 and QNX) require this feature and will fail to boot without it.
i'm guessing there's no workaround.
cheers

Really GOOD !!!
Time ago, I was lucky with this OS!!
Today I'm using OS/2 Warp 4 on bare hardware (i7core, 2GB ram, Matrox G450 PCI Dual Head with drivers rev. 2.58) and using an SMP Kernel (14.062_SMP). Was an hard work, with lot of trial and error, lot of files downloaded, but its was worth, yet it run, and is AMAZING FAST. And without using any virtualization, but I must say, VirtualBox is a BIG HELP a the begin, as Warp 4 need at least Fixpack 15 + lot other files to work on today machines. And with an SMP Kernel + lot of other files and BIG patience, IT REALLY ROCK like no other OS today marketed. Sadly that IBM marketing for OS/2 was the BADIEST EVER SEEN. Into my heart and my hardware, OS/2 will have a place, so long I live, this is my statement ... OS/2 RULEZZ !!! :-)

The best way I found to use this is to extract each IMZ files into IMA and then extract the IMA into original files. Start with the INSTALL.IMZ and then proceed on. EACH IMA file will extract into subfolder. The files in each subfolder will easily fit into a 1.44 disk. Need 23 newlyformatted disk.

I have a Mac and use the Emulator Q / QEMU. I renamed the Files into *-IMG.ZIP and unzipped all files. Because Q / QEMU can not use IMG Files i renamed them into *.DSK
The Installation worked without any Problem.

I used winimage to convert the .imz files to .ima. The names of the images were wrong, when the installer asks for disk 1 I used disk 3 and when it asks for disk 2 I used disk 4 and so on. When the installer asks for disk 16 use disk 1, and when it asks for disk 17 use disk 2. To start the setup boot from the Install disk.
I hope this helps!!!

Microsoft left... with much of the GUI code and kernel code IBM wrote and started on Windows NT and 95.

It works but the DSk images were .imz and vitrual pc support .ima. it works though
This is much better than os\2 and windows
warp 4 sucks

Microsoft had nothing to do with OS/2 version 2 or beyond. Microsoft abandoned OS/2 after v1.3.

A precious old time OS with beautiful GUI, co-creation of Microsoft & IBM before Microsoft alone depart from it to their sweety Windows, and IBM continued on this one; try it and feel its serenity.
