CDROM IN WINNT SERVER 4.0

By excel_gid ·
I installed Winnt Server 4.0 Service Pack 6 on a Server machine installe with L440GX motherboard. What I did that I copied \I386 directory on a empty partitiion of the hard disk and ran setup from there. But in the end I came up with a problem that I did not find my CDROM in my computer. Can anybody tell my how this problem can be solved. Thanks.

CDROM IN WINNT SERVER 4.0

Are you not able to install Windows NT from CD-Rom? And then apply all the necessary service packs? You can setup your CD-rom drive to be the first boot device from within the BIOS. NT can ignore the fact that a CD-rom exists, when it gets installed from one, instead of a hard drive isntall. It just may have missed your cd-rom during a hardware initial scan.

Some older CDROMs cannot be detected during the hardware detection part of setup because they cannot respond fast enough to queries from setup. I had this problem with a Creative Infra 18 CDROM. The CDROM worked fine in DOS/Windows but would always fail during the hardware detection part of NT setup. Unfortunatly, I had to replace the CDROM with a newer one. However, once setup was complete, I put the Creative CDROM back in and it worked fine.

Dear, this is not the case with me. But in fact whenever you copy your Nt setup files on hard drive and run setup from there you will not have your CDROM installed on NT.

Thanks.
