Installing Mathematica for OS/2 Symmetrical Multiprocessing (SMP) v2.11 / HPFS386 Hack in VirtualBox

(Once the video player has started, right selecting (or 'clicking') your device (or 'mouse') will show menu option, 'Open video in new tab', which will enable larger screen size.)

Procedure to install Mathematica v2.2 for OS/2 in my local copy of the VirtualBox 7.0.12 OS/2 for SMP v2.11 with HPFS386 virtual machine hosted in my four(4) CPU / eight(8) CORE Metztli Reiser4 development environment.

Subsequently this VirtualBox vm will be uploaded to a remote server, with a Metztli Reiser4 for AMD CPUs environment, i.e., reizer4, and I will utilize VBoxManage to increase the cpu count to 16 in the headless environment.

Although the visual media is self explanatory, I included a few Mathematica for OS/2 installation procedure snapshots which may be of relevant historical interest:

Diskette 1 has been inserted a priori and we can see that it is executing initial installation phase:

Mathematica for OS/2 a priori inserted diskette 1 which is running
Mathematica a priori inserted diskette 1 which is running

Mathematica for OS/2 installer prompts for diskette 2:

Mathematica for OS/2 insert diskette 2
Mathematica for OS/2 insert diskette 2

Diskette 2 installer executes and proceeds with second phase of installation:

Mathematica for OS/2 diskette 2 running
Mathematica for OS/2 diskette 2 running

Mathematica for OS/2 installation routine prompts for diskette 3:

Mathematica for OS/2 insert diskette 3
Mathematica for OS/2 insert diskette 3

Diskette 3 routine of the installer picks up where the previous left of:

Mathematica for OS/2 diskette 3 running
Mathematica for OS/2 diskette 3 running

Mathematica for OS/2 installer routine prompts for diskette 4:

Mathematica for OS/2 insert diskette 4
Mathematica for OS/2 insert diskette 4

Diskette 4 carries installation past the half of the total routine:

Mathematica for OS/2 diskette 4 running
Mathematica for OS/2 diskette 4 running

Mathematica for OS/2 installer prompts for the final diskette 5:

Mathematica for OS/2 insert final diskette 5
Mathematica for OS/2 insert final diskette 5

Diskette 5 installation routine completes the Mathematica for OS/2 installation:

Mathematica for OS/2 final diskette 5 running
Mathematica for OS/2 final diskette 5 runing

Mathematica for OS/2 prompts us whether we agree with the default -named folder...

Mathematica for OS/2 default -named folder

Or else &#59;D

Subsequently, a dialog informs us that Mathematica for OS/2 is installed!

Nepohualtzintzin (Ne∙pohual∙tzin∙tzin) ≈ I can compute infinitesimals -- from the Nahuatl, real Mexico - Tenochtitlan's language -- which predates the alien Anglo-Saxons / Iberian / French, etc. all, European invaders' Latin vulgar -derived dialects on this continent originally known as Ixachitlan ≈ Landmass Immensity.

Hello,

would you send me the floppy disk images
of Mathematica v2.2 for OS/2 ?

Best greets,
