Short description

The installation program of Reboot/2 creates a WPS folder with one icon for each bootable partition. If you execute one of these icons and press enter, SETBOOT.EXE is executed to OS/2 shutdown *IMMEDIATELY* (no application shutdown, only file-system shutdown) and the selected partition is booted directly by bypassing the boot manager menu.

Note:
Before executing such a reboot, close all applications or at least save all unsaved data, OTHERWISE UNSAVED DATA IS LOST !!!!

The Reboot/2 folder is created in the OS/2 System folder and a shadow of it is placed onto the desktop.

Overview

This package creates a WPS folder, from which you can directly reboot to all bootable partitions directly, without invoking the Bootmanager Menu.
As OS/2 Bootmanager/SETBOOT.EXE do the real work, no application shutdown is made, but only file-system shutdown !
