Putting aside the legality (or rather illegality), the software available there maybe along the lines of the various OS X installs people have hacked together to run on non-Macs. Even if it were legal, I would not trust those to be original versions. Sometime this week I'll go through and recreate, and document everything I did from start to finish for both OS/2 Warp 4.0 and 4.52. These are going to be based off of CDs and floppies (for Warp 4.0) that I have, that are official versions. Make sure you have 2GB - 3GB partitions, just to test. OS/2 shouldn't have a problem with partitions bigger than that under a VM, but better to check everything. Now if you have the time, I'd say find some bootable DOS floppies (plenty of links in this forum) and mount those, and create a FAT16 partition within a new VM using those, and then set the VM up to be OS/2 using that drive partition, and then go through and select it and format it, set it installable, etc., with FDisk/LVM. It sounds like your problem is with the partition itself.
