Windows NT 3.1 Error 7B "Inaccessible Boot Device"

As the title said, i used a 16mb ram and 8gb IDE Hard Drive.
When finished the floppy installation it restarts and BSOD with code 7B "Inaccessible Boot Device".
I used a VMWare 5.x compatible.
Is there a size limit on the hard disk?


  • Even i changed it's size to 1gb it still happens. Maybe some other problems.
  • Problem solved.
    Change the Hard Disk position from 1:1 to 0:0.
  • Either way NT 3.1 is going to be a horrendous pain to install or use on anything other than real hardware from the era.
