NT Installation did not go thru fine


There is already a case created in compaq " NA020823040557" is the case id.

What I have done: I used Compaq smart array CD to install Windows NT. It installed the Drivers. atlast, it asked me to put the Windows NT Enterprise edition CD. I did. then it copied the enterprise files. then it asked me to re-boot. I re-booted. It reads all the logical drives. But it is showing me Windows NT .....1 Processor....Blue scree...of Windows NT. it stays for ever.

I called COmpaq supprot again. They asked me to ruse direct Monitor+keyboard + mouse instead of KVM Switches since I have other machine, I use KVM along with this CL 380 with other machines.

I did this too. I plugged in my monitor, key board and mouse.

Still it re-boot afetr that in the blue screen, it stays for ever.

any solution please

Since I was not able to stand in the long queue in the compaq supprot call, I though I would communicate through this so that I can do my other stuffs and read the posting also..

Please let me know

Re: NT Installation did not go thru fine

Hi, If you have more than a gig of memory I will sugg move down lower than a gig of memory. Also make sure you have the system board upgraded as well (firware). And is it all Compaq hardware. Hope this will help.
