We have been able to install OS/2 onto a computer with a Soyo SY-P4I 845PE ISA motherboard, for details such as onboard IDE controller etc visit http://www.soyousa.com/products/proddesc.php?id=194
, VGA video card and P4 3GHz processor with all non-legacy devices (ie USB) disabled in the bios settings to avoid compatibility issues.
The installation process appears to complete successfully, HOWEVER when the computer is rebooted and we attempt to run OS/2 off the hard drive, the OS/2 Warp graphical screen loads and then moments afterwards a text screen with black background comes up stating:
"IBM Corp. Bus Master IDE Driver for OS/2, Version 3.02
A proram in this session encountered a problem and cannot continue."
In then proceeds to dump a bunch of variables onto the screen (which can be provided upon request if they are nessesary)
Our theory is this could be due to its inability to use the integrated IDE controller on our motherboard. Which is strange because the setup program was able to access and copy files to the drive.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
