Installation of Win Nt4

by Scott Lowe Contributor In reply to Installation of Win Nt4

First, copy the boot.ini file to a floppy for safekeeping.

I would go ahead and run the NT4 installer and install it to the FAT drive (Win2K uses a newer version of NTFS - not sure if NT4 would like that or not). Make sure that you do not install it into a directory called "Windows" since that will hose your Win98 install.

After you are done installing NT4, you may have to reinstall Win2K to replace the boot partition. Since I've actually never done this, I'm not 100% sure.

After youare all done, if you don't see all 3 OSs, copy the boot.ini from the floppy you created and edit it to add the Windows NT4 instance that you installed.

Again, I'm making some assumptions here, but it should work in the end.

Partition the drive space where yopu want NT4 Using the set up disks for NT4 will have to reside on the fat partition,but not fat 32 which it will not recognize,it is best to install in a seperate directory,the on screen will guide you thru installation,after you install NT4,use the start up disk to reinstall the system.ini and boot files to the active partition that you will boot the system from.
