PREFACE

Installing Windows NT from CD, HDD or floppies as usual on modern hardware (I mean Pentium4-based and later PCs) it is a difficult task due to installer incompatibility with faster/newer hardware & CPUs. That doesnt mean that Windows NT cannot RUN on such hardware. You CAN install Windows NT in virtialization software (QEMU, VirtualBox, VmWare, VirtualPC, Bochs ...) and then copy intalled OS image on "real" PC harddrive.


General installation notes

On modern systems like Pentium-II CPUs or higher you may expect problems when installing NT 3.5 or updating it with service pack. To resolve these problems you must edit these files:
Windows NT 3.5 General comments

Windows NT 3.5 is a milestone between 3.1 and 3.51 NT versions (much closer to 3.51 than to 3.1). So keep it in mind and refer to my articles about NT 3.1 / 3.51:
Windows NT 3.1 article
Windows NT 3.51 article
Differences in writing drivers compared with newer NT systems

  1. Also you must keep an eye for missing ntoskrnl, ntdll, kernel32, user32, gdi32, advapi32, shell32 and other functions/procedures.
