Experiences with Hardcard II XL ?

Experiences with Hardcard II XL ?

Post by Georg Pietr » Thu, 08 Jul 1993 18:10:45



Has anyone experiences with using a Hardcard II XL under OS/2 2.1 ?

My system:
- 486DX/33, 16 MB, ISA
- Quantum 120MB IDE
- Quantum 210 MB SCSI (with Adaptec 1542A)
- ATI Ultra+

I want to use a Plus (Quantum) Hardcard II XL 50 as additional disk for
swapping. (It's left over from my old IBM PS/2 30 286.)

Thanks

Yes, you can use it.  You need to get the OS/2 driver for the hardcard.  Also,
you need to comment out the INT13 driver line in CONFIG.SYS.  The new 506
driver will work with the hardcard; the 2.0 SP version didn't.

My experience so far is only with 2.0GA+SP and the beta 506 driver.  I'm going
to install 2.1 either tonight or tomorrow.

Personally I'm going to look into getting an IDE or SCSI drive to replace it.
The slowness of Quantum to come out with the driver and complete directions for
using the newer 506 driver have annoyed me.  With disk prices dropping, its
well worth looking into a new drive.

BTW, you can't put  any HPFS partitions on the hardcard.

Good luck.

1. Quantum Hardcard XL II under OS/2

Does anyone know how to get a QuantumHardcard to work with OS/2 V2?
Every time I try to run the new driver it tells me that a program called
'IBMINT13.I13' is getting in the way.  But if I remove IBMINT13.I13 the system won't
boot because it says that it can't find COUNTRY.SYS!

This is REALLY bugging me - PLEASE HELP?!!
