I downloaded OS/2 from the server to install in VPC but I need the boot disks to continue. i found some extracters here (disk 1) and here (disk 2) but these require extraction to a real floppy, but i dont have a floppy drive or any floppies that work. could someone download these, extract them to a floppy and upload the images to my server if thats ok? or maybe someone knows some where else i can get them.

Is this ISO complete?

If yes, you can use the images that are on the CD. On my genuine OS/2 Warp 4 CD, there's a folder /DISKIMGS/OS2/35. The images in there are what you want. DISK0.DSK should be the boot disk, DISK1_CD.DSK is the install disk for CD-ROM install and DISK2.DSK is disk 2. Use these in conjunction with the CD and you should be good to go.

If you need the updated install disks (which I am not really sure of, I think I got it working in VPC without them, just used the original disks), then I can't help you as of now, sorry.

yeh, i found this but it continually fails on a disk 4 or 5. The uncompressed ISO size 513mb. It seems to try to write to more than the capacity of the floppy, which corrupts it.

Erm... I did try and transfer them, but I don't seem to have any floppies in good enough condition to make a successful write for even 1 disk... despite having 2 floppy drives... :S

Size is okay, I think.

But wait, you're doing this in VPC, right? Why don't you just mount the disk image in VPC? These DISKX.DSK files are standard 1.44MB images, you don't have to use the command (MAKEDSKS or whatever is called) as that will create a complete floppy set. To start the install with the CD, you'll only need the boot disk and the disk 1.

For future reference, there is a virtual floppy drive program available on the internet.
