Virtual Machine Options for ECS as Guest:

Microsoft Virtual PC (modern)
  • Guest eComStation 1.2 works
SVISTA (Paralles before 2005)
  • Guest eComStation 1.2 is supported
Parallels virtual machine
  • guest eComStation 1.2 works inside VM
  • Chuck: Since Parallels appears to present the virtual disk as an ordinary IDE drive, I have been using the latest IBM1S506.ADD, IBMATAPI.FLT, and IBMIDECD.FLT. I will probably re-think this when I try to add RSJ support.
  • vbox requires vtx to install os2 guest regardless of host platform.
    • This Core 2 Duo don't support Intel VT: P7350, P7450, T5200, T5250, T5270, T5300, T5450, T5470, T6400 and T6570
