Making an OS/2 drive bootable, i don't get it...
Posted on 1998-02-23
I am having a lot of trouble converting an old (existing &
installed) OS/2 bootable partition (Warp Server Advanced =
HPFS386) to a new drive.
I tried most everything (Partition Magic & DriveImage) but
it just wont work. The problem is the size of the new drive
is 4.3 GB (Quantum BF) and that gives trouble under DOS (or
so it seems)
Now what i did was creating a new partition on the new
drive, formatting it HPFS and simply copy the old files to
the new partition with xcopy /s/e/t *
It worked just fine, but i am unable to make the new
partition to be recognized as bootable (kernel file missing
Sysinstx did *not* work on this!
please *help* me out here!!!!
