Hi!

I found a while ago an old NT4 cd. Now I'm trying to install it on my main pc, but the installation program crashes without bsod immediately after loading all the stuff to memory and then reboots.

Some specs:

CPU - Intel I5 3570k,

Mobo - some Asus p8z77 with UEFI bios

8GB or 4GB of ram (neither works)

USB mouse & keyboard

 

Same results with another 3rd gen I5 pc with Gigabyte mobo and 8 gigs of ram

 

Does anyone have idea of what might cause this?

 

Thanks

 

-Jalmari

Yes. Better check the specs/hardware limitations of NT4. You've answered your own question.

I ran into a problem installing NT4 on "newer" hardware, quite some time ago.

I'm not sure what the board was, I'm thinking it was an Intel 865 chipset. :unsure:

Addendum - You might also Google this

NT4 "USB support"

Only third party USB Drivers. MS didn't ever provide for it. NT4 (like Windows 2000) was strictly business oriented. There's RAM limitations, HDD Partition size limitations, and-on-and-on. Also google this

NT4 limitations

and this

windows nt4 sp6 slipstream

MSFN jumps up immediately on the second one.

 

 

HTH

Installing Windows NT from CD, HDD or floppies as usual on modern hardware (I mean Pentium4-based and later PCs) it is a difficult task due to installer incompatibility with faster/newer hardware & CPUs. That doesnt mean that Windows NT cannot RUN on such hardware. You CAN install Windows NT in virtialization software (QEMU, VirtualBox, VmWare, VirtualPC, Bochs ...) and then copy intalled OS image on "real" PC harddrive.

 

1) Install base NT4 system in virtual environment.

2) Apply Service Pack 6a & Post-Service Pack 6a SRP.

3) Install VBEMP (video) and Uniata (EIDE-SATA-ATAPI) drivers

4) Clone this system from virtual environment to real hardware

 

see http://bearwindows.z...m.au/winnt4.htm

 

As a proof that NT4 works on modern hardware I provide some screenshots from Supermicro X8DT6 + Xeon 2.93 GHz:

And this one from NT4 Workstation with Intel DG33FB + Core2Duo 3.16GHz:
