How to change NTs default Installation DLocked
When NT 4.0 is first installed, it “remembers” the location it was installed from and uses that same location when it needs to look for a driver or protocol. Is there a way to change this default installation location to a different location?
I have inherited an NT box who’s installer installed NT from a CD-ROM thereby asking me to “Insert CD-ROM” whenever it needs a driver/protocol. Sometimes it displays a dialog box where I can put in my own path but other times (w/ protocols) it asks for the CD-ROM and only gives me the incredibly flexible option of hitting the OK button.
I would love to copy the i386 directory from the CD-ROM to the C: and re-direct NT to go get what it needs from there instead of having to carry around theNT CD wherever I go. Is there an INI file that I am missing? Is it possible??
Does a similar solution exist for Win98?
