Ticket #3 (closed defect: fixed)
Problem with USBOHCD.SYS from usbxhcd8.zip
|Reported by:||losepete||Owned by:||erdmann|
This was originally posted in comp.os.os2.misc/Update to USB host controller drivers: usbxhcd8.zip but does not seem to have had any response to date:-
There seems to be a problem with the included usbohcd.sys driver; usbehcd.sys seems to be working fine but cannot test usbuhcd.sys.
I unzipped the usbxhcd8 package and powered off as it was (past) my bedtime.
Today I powered on the system and was surprised to see the boot process stop with this onscreen:-
USBMOUSE.SYS: USB MOUSE driver v.1.1 loaded.
I rebooted but the boot stops at the same point - I went and made a coffee and the boot process was still at the same point on my return over 5 minutes later.
I booted to a cmd line, deleted usbohcd.sys and reinstated the IBM version.
I rebooted to a working Desktop without problems.
I'm sure that the usbxhcd7 version of usbohcd.sys did not cause any boot problems previously so I unzipped that version and rebooted to check. No problem on reboot, system loaded fine - using it to post this report.
