Just to let everybody know that I have sucessfully installed both W2K and OS/2 Warp 4 on Thinkpad A31. Everthing works in OS/2 except the modem. It even plays well with suspend/resume.

Not to put too keen an edge on it, but sinip put *BOTH* Windows 2000 and OS/2 Warp 4 on the Thinkpad, not just WSeB as your message indicates you did. ;-)

I think most would suggest "so what?", however I suggest it is great to read all this OS/2 stuff still going on. I am looking forward to some time to try a network install of Warp onto my Thinkpad, as I do not currently have a docking station, and would prefer the trial of fire, as it were, for a netwrok install....

Not to detract from your achievement sinip, but I got WSeB running on an A31p already 2 years ago :-)
As a matter of fact, I even got the DVD burner and security features working.


Well, it's not like I expect a medal or something :-) but for me, it was always PITA to put both Win and OS/2 on one HDD, on non-LVM system. So I thought that if somebody experience some problems during the attempt I could offer some assistance.
Anyway, this A31 has only CD ROM, so I presume that you installed DVD burner later or it came like that?

I have Boot Manager, W2K and eCS 1.2 on a T23 but have not got suspend/resume to work well. What did you do? I don't know if it will work on a T23 but there's only one way to find out. :-)

I installed latest Speedstep package from IBM (it is intended for MCP and won't install automaticaly on Warp 4 but after copying the files manually it didn't complain). Let me know if you can't find the file.

Well Ted_E, you need the APM support installed under OS/2 as well as the Thinkpad system driver (APM.SYS + AODBSMD.SYS).
To get FULL suspend to work (memory dump to disk), you also need to create a dump file (as placeholder) with the corresponding DOS utility on a FAT partition (not really practicable if you got 2GB memory, such as I do).
W/o that, you still get suspend to work, just w/o memory dump. meaning your RAM does not get switched off during "suspend" and thus still uses up (some) battery juice.


I was wondering how suspend worked so well on my T42p without my doing anything. I take it windoze just maintains it in RAM as well since there is only the NTFS partition and a FAt32 IBM_Service partition on the drive, so if the battery drains complately its lost.

So OS/2 can be setup to save the RAM image to disk and restore from it? Are there instructions on how to do this somewhere? Or is this just for older TPs?
