Installing device drivers while installing OS/2
There have been some modifications to the Installing the ServeRAID Device Drivers While Installing OS/2 procedure.
These instructions replace the instructions on page 74 - 76 in your ServeRAID manual.
You can use the following instructions to install the ServeRAID device driver and Administration and Monitoring Program files while installing OS/2 Warp Server.
Note: If you install these files on a logical drive that has its write policy set to the write-back mode, wait at least 10 seconds after being prompted to press Ctrl+Alt+Del before you actually press the keys.
Waiting 10 seconds or longer gives the ServeRAID adapter or controller the time needed to flush all dirty-cache pages out to the hard disk.
To install the ServeRAID files while installing OS/2:
If there is not enough space, delete files not needed in your installation (such as proprietary CD-ROM or SCSI device drivers). Make sure you remove all entries referring to any device drivers you delete from the CONFIG.SYS file.
- Important - If you have more than one ServeRAID or SCSI adapter in your system, make sure that the BASEDEV statement for the adapter controlling the startup (boot) device appears before the BASEDEV statements for other ServeRAID or SCSI adapters in the CONFIG.SYS file.
Note: The a represents the drive letter assignment for the diskette drive that contains the ServeRAID diskette.
The OS/2 Device Driver Installation window opens. In the Source field type A: (a: is the letter of the
diskette drive where the IBM ServeRAID Device Driver Diskette is located.
In the Destination field type the full path where you want the device driver files to be copied.
