HARDCARD II XL compatible with OS2 2.0?

HARDCARD II XL compatible with OS2 2.0?

Post by <MASS.. » Sat, 18 Apr 1992 03:39:51



I have a Plus Development Hardcard II XL 105, and want to install OS2 2.0 on it
(the hardcard will be used as the boot drive.) Drivers for OS2 1.2 are availabl
e, but when I called Plus Development, they said that the new drivers for OS2

Has anyone successfully installed OS2 on this hardcard, either on top of a DOS
format or with OS2's own format?

I am kind of scared that my card will cause problems.
Thanks for your help.

I just got off the phone with Plus/Quantum, and they said they would call me
back about the expected date of the driver.  They gave me a BBS number if I
wanted to check there from time to time: 408-894-3214 (8,1,N).  They supposedly
have drivers up to OS/2 1.3, but are still working on the 2.0 version.

Like you I'm not very pleased about this.  This means I have a new O/S to use,
but no way to use it!  I'm also displeased that Plus/Quantum have not done
anything before now to get a driver out.  How many beta versions of OS/2 have
there been in the last several months?  This is not very good support or
advanced thinking in my opinion.

I don't imagine IBM has any fix to this problem?  At the very least I'd like
to have my free support on OS/2 extended until I'm actually able to USE the
software.

It should work just fine now.  If it doesn't work with the
IBM1S506.ADD driver, it will work with the IBMINT13.I13 driver.  If
you have difficulty installing, follow the procedure outlined in the
file instlfix.zoo, available via anonymous ftp from hobbes.nmsu.edu.

1. Experiences with Hardcard II XL ?

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

   Georg
