Hang when installing OS/2 / SCGA
PROBLEM - When installing OS/2 on a P60/D that was previously set to some SVGA
resolution, the install will appear to hang when it is time to reboot OS/2 (after disk 5).
Machines AFFECTED - Valuepoint 6384 P60/D systems.
SOLUTION - The system is not really hung, it is really presenting a blank screen since it
assumes the video subsystem is an 8514/A (which mach32 can emulate) to install OS/2
successfully the install.exe utility on the mach32 driver diskette #1 must be run. These
3 diskettes come with the P60/D. Set the configuration back to VGA mode, 640x480
60Hz, press F10 to save the eep ROM configuration, and then the install of of OS/2 will
The SVGA setting is updated in the EEP ROM on that ATI chipset and OS/2 has not loaded
the SVGA support yet at this point in the install. After completing the OS/2 install, you can
then set SVGA modes.
