Question:How can I create a bootable floppy diskette on OS/2, which can make my HPFS partitions accessible?
Answer:To create a bootable floppy disk that can access HPFS partitions perform the following steps:
To add hpfs support to an existing boot disk, you need to copy uhpfs.dll to the disk and update the config.sys on the disk to include the statement IFS=HPFS.IFS /CACHE:64 /CRECL:4
Another alternative is to create a set of three system utility disks. You do this go into the OS/2 system folder and then into the System Setup Folder. You will find an option there called Create Utility Diskettes.
