  1. Boot failure


    I am returning to the task of making my new Windows box double as a standby for
    my Warp box.

    I solved the problem of the SCSI U320 driver not loading by installing an
    Adaptec 29160N controller and reverting to the U160 driver which controlled this
    hard drive in a previous box.

    When I boot the hard drive the screen presents the following:-
    System BIOS
    SCSI BIOS
    System config summary
    Boot Manager
    Recovery options
    Basedevs
    Config.sys reports
    At this point I expect the display BIOS/driver to report but instead the system
    hangs leaving nothing in popuplog.os2.

    When I select F2 in the Recovery options, the Autocheck reports clean and the
    system crashes leaving the following 4 entries in popuplog.os2.

    The box has 8 GB of RAM, 256 MB of RAM on the display adapter and Video BIOS is
    cached. The previous box had fractions of all this.

    What should I try next?

    Are you running the newest kernel? Seems to me that only 104a and newer
    may work for your system.

    Try removing some RAM. IIRC, OS/2 can only address 4GB RAM max. I have
    heard of people having trouble with more than 2 - you might want to start
    with 2GB and see if you get any further...
