Installing NT Server 4

By teo ·
I have installed nt workstation 4 on my pc. Now I want to install nt server 4. After copying all the nt files (text installation), I re-boot the pc and select 'windows nt 4.00installation/upgrade', there is no effect (It comes back at the option). Can I know what is the problem and how to fix it ?

Thank you

Installing NT Server 4

How did you initially run the setup?? Do you have a bootable CD? If so, what I would do is run the setup from the CD. Sounds like your boot.ini could be corrupt. Did you select the same disk/partition as workstation?? Does it still boot into workstation?? If so go into workstation and look at c:\boot.ini, ensure the references to disk are correct.

Hii...
listen...
may be u get thisproblem becuase u didn't but any bootable disks or bootable CD..
cuz. in the begining the WINNT will install
some files that allow the setup to run dirctlley agin..
for this u got to reinstall it another time...
also, if u insert an WINNT under the running windows workstation at this time u will have only one windows no Multiple Windows.....

for this try to install another time with checking that u r butting an bootable disks Or CD..

just check the path that it asks for the installation or upgrade option is it the same path that has win nt workstation installed if not it will come back to the same option again . according to me u r trying to upgrade if that is the point just check the path and i think that u have run the setup from within windows nt workstation do u have the bootable sat of floppies that comes with winnt server if not u can create it with the winnt32 option
hope this helps
