NT Workstation

Can NT Workstation be installed instead of using NT Server or 2000 Server? This system is not being used as a server station, but only as a workstation.

Re: NT Workstation

Yes, but Smartstart can't be used so:

In order to install NT on a system with a current Compaq SCSI controller, you need to create the 3 NT install disks from the NT CD. Use the "WINNT /OX" command to do this. Then, when the Smartstart manual install is done, boot from those disks - without the NT CD in the drive until asked. Choose "custom" for the install mode (F6 key) and skip detection on mass storage. Specify an unlisted controller and use the Compaq NT 4.0 SSD for the drivers. Then specify a secondary controller and use the NT "IDE/Atapi" driver. You can also use the SSD for the NIC drivers (also likely to be out of date in NT).
