Re: Windows NT will not start for the first time...

You need to download and install the NT 4.0 OS using the required Compaq driver disks from this web address.


Scroll down to the floppy disk version. See the readme files on the disks for installation instructions.

With some older versions of the Microsoft NT 4.0 install CD, you have to make the three NT 4.0 install boot disks with the /i386/WINNT.EXE command. The required Compaq drivers will not be installed if you boot the system with some of the oldr NT 4.0 CDs. You have to use the install method to add the Compaq drivers during the OS install.
