Welcome to IWETHEY!

New You need a kernel update
there are many places (esp. Australia, I hear) where they can be had.

New Thought so.
Looks like I'm hosed for now.

Still searching for a free alternative.....
New Found newer kernel. Didn't help.
Found a kernel on an Australian site (thanks, Jack), but doesn't seem to solve the issue. New kernel is .104_W4, but still can't boot all the way. Seems to be hanging right before the display driver loads.

Very weird.....
New dont know squat about OS2 but video cmos settings?
making sure no higher memory is being used by the video bios. Usually in the old days I would downgrade everything possible then stuff would load enuff to tweak. Again, I never successfully got OS2 to load.
thanx,
bill

New Good point. It might be a "video aperture" issue.
IIRC, Matrox put some video memory between 512 MB and 1 GB. Maybe something like that is involved.

Cheers,
Scott.
New Not likely.
This has symptoms of the known >512MB memory issue I've seen mentioned.

Besides, if it was a CMOS setting, I'd expect the eCS 1.2 demo CD to have an issue booting and it does not.

Still searching.....
New Been at this many years.
I've installed OS/2 on many a system over the years. There's always a hitch from time to time, but usually the solution is found.

A temporary setback only. Still searching.....
New Did you try the boot time option . . .
. . to set back to VGA mode? If that works then you could try reinstalling whatever driver you're using (SciTech Snap?).

New That's next. Was saving it as a last resort.
And, yes, I'm using Snap for OS/2.
New thats what I was thinking of, vga mode for recalterant video
