This package installs an update to the IBM OS/2 Warp device driver for the Intel 810, 810e, 815, or 815e video system that comes preinstalled in your IBM computer.

This document refers to IBM Aptiva and IBM NetVista systems containing the Intel 810, 810e, 815, or 815e chipset. This update requires approximately 2MB of space on a diskette (drive A).

NOTE: Neither IBM nor Intel provides support for Intel Extreme graphics drivers for OS/2 .

Downloading the update

  1. Click the file link to download the file from the Web page.
  2. When prompted, select a drive and directory in which to save the downloaded file.

Extracting the update

  1. Click Start, select Find, then click Files and folders.
  2. Insert a blank 1.44MB floppy diskette into the diskette drive.
  3. Type e41t10a.exe in the search box, then click Find Now. This will locate the e41t10a.exe file you just downloaded.
  4. Double-click the e41t10a.exe icon.
  5. Follow the onscreen prompts. The necessary files will be extracted to the diskette.

Installing the update

  1. Check the system requirements. IBM OS/2 must be fully installed and running on the system prior to running this software. The system must be in VGA mode. If installing additional fixpacks, do so while the system is in VGA mode. For instructions on setting the desktop in VGA mode, refer to the "De-Installing the Software" section. All IBM OS/2 sessions must be closed prior to installing this driver.
  2. Insert the Intel GRADD driver diskette into drive A (or any other diskette drive).
  3. Open an IBM OS/2 full-screen or IBM OS/2 window session.

    IBM OS/2 version 4 only:

    At the IBM OS/2 command prompt, change to drive A:.

    Type the following command to copy all necessary files to the IBM OS/2 drive:

    [SOURCEPATH] is the diskette drive.
    [BOOTDRIVE] is the drive where IBM OS/2 is installed.
    [/u] is optional and is used to indicate unattended install such as for CID installations. A CID response file is not required.

    IBM OS/2 version 3 only:

    Requires the setup to be executed from the partition containing the OS. In IBM OS/2 version 3, copy all files from the floppy disk to the hard drive. At the IBM OS/2 version command prompt, type the following command to copy all necessary files to the IBM OS/2 drive:

    [SOURCEPATH] is the diskette drive.
    [BOOTDRIVE] is the drive where IBM OS/2 is installed.

    Then press Enter. A number of system files will be transferred if the ones found on the system are older. When a popup asking for Monitor configuration choice pops up, accept "Use monitor defaults" choice.

    The installation will then blank the screen while testing VESA modes and if successful, it will transfer driver files.

  4. When prompted to do so, remove the diskette from drive A, perform a shutdown, and then restart your computer.
  5. When the system reboots, do the following:
    1. Open the IBM OS/2 System folder.
    2. Open the System Setup folder.
    3. Open the System object.
    4. When the Settings notebook appears, select the Screen tab.
    5. Select a resolution from the page 1.
    6. Select a monitor from page 2.
    7. Select refresh setting from the page 1 of the Screen tab.
    8. Close the Settings notebook.
    9. The selected resolution will be in effect upon the next boot.

Installation in a CID environment

  1. Create a directory on the server (i.e. GRADDS). Copy the files from the Intel(R) GRADD driver diskette to the GRADDS directory.
  2. IBM OS/2 must have been successfully installed on the client using the CID (Configuration Installation Distribution) method.

To install a GRADD driver using CID, use the following information to modify your LCU command file.

NOTE: The following information is meant as a guide. Your LCU command file might be different.

/*               LCU PRODUCT DATA SECTION            */
x.graddvideo = 15'Intel Gradd Video'
x.15.statevar = 'CAS_' ||
x.15.instprog = 'x:\img\gradds\SETUP.CMD',
                ' x:\img\gradds ' || bootdrive,
                ' /u'
x.15.rspdir = ''
x.15.default = ''

/*          NUMBER OF PROGRAMS SET UP IN THE         */

/*                PRODUCT DATA SECTION               */


/*               INSTALLATION SECTION                */
when OVERALL_STATE = 2 then do
  if RunInstall(x.graddvideo) == BAD_RC then exit
  Call CheckBoot

/*                    ROUTINE SECTION                 */
/*  The following information should already exist in */
/*  the LCU command file.                             */
  parse arg new_state, other

/* Set the state to go in OVERALL_STATE */
rc2 = SetState(new_state, 'RebootAndGotoState', 1)

/* Save the environment vars */
Call SaveStates

/* Reboot the machine */
Call Reboot



You may refer to readme.cfg on this diskette for information on how to setup monitor, resolution and refresh during CID install.

Verifying installation of the software

  1. Open the IBM OS/2 System folder.
  2. Open the System Setup folder.
  3. Open the System object.
  4. When the Settings notebook appears, select the Screen tab.
  5. Select Configuration from the page 2. The window will contain the Intel(R) 815 keyword.


This section provides troubleshooting information. Installation problems

  1. During the installation of this driver, DISPLAY.LOG and DSPINSTL.LOG files are created in the OS2\INSTALL directory. These files identify the IBM OS/2 system files that were updated and indicate whether the installation was successful. The contents of these files might be useful if you need to report an installation problem to Intel.
  2. Installation of the GRADD uses the Dspinstl utility shipped with IBM OS/2 4.0. This utility can fail if it finds a *.dsc file which is not a dspinstl description file. During testing, it was found that installation of SystemView for IBM OS/2 client may leave behind a file called "commonag.dsc" on the root of the bootdrive. This file is not a Dspinstl description file and will cause Dspinstl to fail. If you have this problem, simply rename or delete the problem file. If an incorrect description file is encountered, it will be noted in the above log(s).

How to determine if the OS/2 GRADD Display Driver is loaded:
Refer to section 4: Verifying installation of the software.
Refer to section 7: Identifying the software version number.

De-installing the software

Use the following procedures to return to VGA mode and deinstall the software:

  1. Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on, press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart it.
  2. When a small white box appears in the upper left-hand corner of your screen, press Alt+F1.
  3. When the Recovery Choices screen appears, press function key F3. Your desktop will now boot in VGA mode.

This de-installation procedure is specific only to the version of the driver and installation file included in this package.

Identifying the software version number

You may execute bldlevel command as follows:

cd \os2\dll
bldlevel intgradd.dll

The Vendor string should read "INT", and the Revision string should be the same as revision value of this readme. The vendor and revision strings can also be found in the build.lvl file on the installation diskette.
