Windows NT 3.x 3.51



  • I am installing this in QEMU/KVM (virt-manager) and after inserting the second floppy i get a BSOD PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA. Can anyone help?

    What options are you using in virt-manager? Here's a shell script I have for you to compare with:
    #!/usr/bin/env bash
    qemu-system-i386 \
    -M pc \
    -m 16M \
    -drive file="WinNT3.51.1057.qcow2",index=0,if=ide,format=qcow2,media=disk \
    -boot order=c,menu=on \
    -cpu 486 \
    -name "Windows NT 3.51.1057" \
    -device sb16 \
    -device VGA \
    -display sdl,gl=on \
    -rtc base=localtime

    Installing 3.51 on VMWare is easy. Create a new VM using the Win 3.1 profile, HDD no bigger than 8GB, 16MB of RAM, add floppy and CD ROM and mount everything then instead of hitting play, instead click the drop down next to it and go "Power On To Firmware", go to the Advanced tab, change installed OS to Win95 and MPS from V1.4 to V1.1 then F10, save and reboot. Oh yeah, you must create a 2GB max partition when installing otherwise it won't boot.
