Installing OS/2 requires modified diskettes - IBM IntelliStation M Pro (Type 6898)

Troubleshooting


Problem

Installing OS/2 on the IBM IntelliStation M-Pro, M/T6898, with IDE hardfiles equal to, or greater than 4.0GB, requires the use of modified install diskettes. In addition, installing OS/2 on SCSI hardfiles also requires the use of modified installation diskettes.

Resolving The Problem

Problem:
Installing OS/2 on the IBM IntelliStation M-Pro, M/T6898, with IDE hardfiles equal to, or greater than 4.0GB, requires the use of modified install diskettes. In addition, installing OS/2 on SCSI hardfiles also requires the use of modified installation diskettes.

Fix:
The diskettes and their file names required for individual versions of OS/2 are listed below.

To obtain a special user ID and password required to download these files from the IBM Personal Systems Group BBS, contact the IBM PC Support Center at 1-800-426-7378.

The files listed below are self-extracting diskette images. After creating the diskettes, use them in place of the original installation diskettes supplied with your version of OS/2.


NOTE:

While OS/2 is not a supported operating system on the IBM IntelliStation M-Pro, M/T 6898, these files are provided as a convenience for those customers wishing to utilize OS/2 as their operating system.

IBM Business Partners and AAP Dealers should be aware that there are currently no OS/2 video drivers available that support the IBM supplied Intergraph and Permedia Glyder MAX-2 video adapters. Prior to the installation of OS/2, these systems must be configured with another model of video adapter that supports the OS/2 operating system.
