Windows NT 4 has severe limits on what boot drives it will install to.
You could install it CLEAN but I bet you would be challenged to find the drivers and more.
Why not run it inside Virtual Box?
And the answer is rather simple. NT's installer does not support what you tried.
This is the closest-to-the-right-forum I could
see for this issue.
My hardware configuration is as follows:
hd1 Windows XP Home
hd2 Linux Mandriva 2009
The master boot record is on XP of course and I can boot into either XP or Linux.
I would like to install NT4 Server on top of the hd1 Windows XP Home operating system.
However, immediately upon inserting the install disk the following message appears.
"It is not recommended that Windows NT 4.0 be installed on this version of Windows."
Before I go any further, I need to find an answer to why this is the case.
This is the first attempt to install NT4 server in this scenario.
XP Service pack 3 is installed with 512mb RAM and a 2gb AMD Athlon CPU.
The file system is NTFS and there is 2.5gb free hard drive memory.
Thanks for any assistance.
