As mentioned previously, HPFS was born from OS/2. As tension increased between the two corporations, the final rift occurred over the fate of the AT (80286). IBM wanted to support the 286, and Microsoft insisted on leaving it behind, and set the baseline (minimum) to be the 386.
They parted ways, with IBM creating its own GUI interface with Top View and supporting the 286, and Microsoft working on Windows NT that required a 386. IBM retired OS/2 a few years ago.
Today, there are only a few drives using HPFS.
