I have just installed VirtualBox 1.3.8 on my GNU/Linux machine (kernel 2.6.21). I tried to install OS/2 Warp 4.52 bit I have a problem. I start the installation from the first installation floppy, all goes fine and installation asks me to enter second installation floppy and press Enter. I insert the next floppy and press enter, at which time OS/2 Warp logo shows up for a very brief moment, then screen goes blank and it stays that way. I can't continue with installation past that point.

OS/2 guests are not supported. With hardware virtualization you have a higher chance at success. (see manual how to enable it, if your cpu supports it).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

We broke OS/2 support in 1.4.0, but have already fixed it. See SVN if you wish to compile VBox yourself.

OS/2 works fine now, provided that you have a system with the VT-x or SVM cpu extensions.
