OS/2 1.30.1 Installed Drive Image 1.30.1

Category: OS
Year: 1991
Description:Virtual PC 2007 Virtual Hard drive image of an installed version of the disks at http://vetusware.com/download/OS2%201.30.1/?id=3532 . Installation from the disks works on limited hardware, so this is a chance to play with the OS without all that messy Install procedure. Also, I have never been able to install directly from those disks on Virtual PC.
Manufacturer: IBM
Localization: EN
OS: OS/2

The floppys are easy to install on a really HD of a Pentium. The only and very important thing is: You can only install it on a HD Primary Master.

Actually, all versions of OS/2 1.x (IBM or MS) can be installed in Virtual Box VM's, applyng a patch to disk 1 (Patching KBD01.SYS or BASEDD01.SYS to avoid a division by zero on fast CPUs) and a tweak in Virtual Box 4.3 in the case of IBM OS/2 1.0 or 1.1. It's not necessary a real hardware.

Thank you so much for your uploading.
Unfortunately, i have to virtualizing IBM OS/2 V1.3 EE on VPC.
Someone saying that i have to make imaged installation. So, i generate a .vhd file from the real harddrive from a 486 machine with os/2 1.3 on it. When i connected this file as the virtual harddisk on VPC. When i start it, here Coming up with the Error message:"Trap 0000, Exception in device driver: Screen$...".
So i really need to know how you create this vhd file. Could you please specify the details of how you made os/2 on VPC? Thank you
Please reply me by post or send me email on: yzhang@csenergy.com.au

This is great, thank you. Just out of curiousity, how did you get this installed? Everytime I tried to install it into VPC2007 from the disk images I would get a "COUNTRY.SYS" error and the install would hang.

Yay! That's neat. I can't say OS/2 is the greatest OS I ever used but it's good to reive the old times. I am going to reinstall this on my 386 box
