OS/2 isunable to operate your hard disk drive

After several months of operation my OS/2 Lotus Notes server refuses to boot and displays the message "OS/2 is unable to operate your hard disk or diskette drive. The system is stopped. Correct the preceding error and restart the system."

I've tried booting the system from diskette and then running th "CHKDSK"  command but it didn't help.

I also renamed my original config.sys and replaced with another copy I found after doing  "dir/s" but that didn't help either.

I haven't  installed any software, patch  fix or driver.

Can someone please help?

Thanks

Christos

You are having a problem with the IBMS1506.ADD driver

Replace them and all other IBm*.Add drivers

That should take care of it
