You will have to format your hard disk first. Windows NT cannot be installed from Windows 3.1 or Windows 95.

To format, use a bootable DOS disk and create a partition and after a reboot, format your drive.

  • To install Windows NT 4.0 Server insert the installation CD and type D:i386winnt/b for the installation process to begin (D being the drive you inserted your installation CD).
  • You will be required to have at hand the 3 installation floppy disks if you are using the floppy disks installation option. Insert Disk 1 and boot up the system. Windows will identify your system hardware requirements and then you will be called for Disk 2, Press ENTER.
  • The Welcome to Setup appears and then to install, Press ENTER.
  • To enable SCSI drives/devices, Press S next.
  • Insert Disk 3, you will then ‘Specify additional drivers’ by pressing S, then Press ENTER.
  • Agree to the License Agreements, make changes to the settings NT has if necessary, if they are OK Press ENTER.
  • There is an option to delete your partition and create one if you had not done so as I had directed on how format your hard drive above.
  • You can now proceed with installation procedure if you do not format at this stage (if you opt to use partition that you created earlier).
