Anyways, I thought I’d go ahead and give this thing a shot, since I haven’t run this in a while, so I installed OS/2 2.11 on Qemu 0.14.0, and … got this.
PNW0162: An internal error has occurred. The program cannot initialize the GDT information.
Which of course is the Global Descriptor Table, and I don’t know why it can’t play with it… Qemu limitation? OS/2?
Anyways afterwards, I get this.
