Hello!, im having some trouble on doing this.


I have a Virtual box NT4 machine, i installed uniata, and the universal graphics driver. Well the problem is, i have in the netbook, Windows xp and windows 8.1 in dual boot, the boot partition is on FAT32 format (i installed the fat32 driver for nt4, also have the boot files from xp).


How i make a partition bootable? Boot files are on the active partition that has the xp and 8.1 boot files, but the partition that has NT4 isnt bootable,

It depends on how you want to boot it (i.e. using only MS tools/boot files or if you want to use a third party boot manager) and there are likely a number of other possible issues much more likely to apply besides making a partition bootable, typically the position, size, geometry of the NT boot partition and the file system used (and using a FAT32 driver on a NT 4.00 boot volume even if possible may have a long series of strings attached :unsure:).


But I don't understand.

Is the NT 4.00 inside a VM (i.e. it is on a disk image) or outside it? 

And you want to boot it from a physicaldrive "directly" on real hardware or as a VM?


Try to describe in more detail what you have and what you would like to obtain as a result.
