    https://winworldpc.com/download/4162c2ba-c3b7-18c3-9a11-c3a4e284a2ef (Windows NT4 Workstation SP1) checksum corrupt... or is it just me?

  • Interesting. Are you getting a SHA1 Checksum of 891160f846f24fd9f2516e6fb0a3edce01e8f262 instead? If so, then I'll update the entry. That is what I am getting here, and the archive seems to be fine. I'm thinking the file may have been updated/fixed on the backend a long time ago and the entry wasn't updated.

    Yeah, and there is no trouble installing graphic drivers, as opposed to Windows 95.

    The only shortcoming in my opinion is the lack of PnP and USB support.

  • I assume you all are talking about the lack of a Virtualbox video driver in Windows 9x? That is really a shortcoming of Virtualbox, not the OS.

    There is a third party USB add-on for NT 4. It works well with mass storage devices, have not tried it with printers or such. It works on real hardware with compatible USB chipsets. Hmmm, has anyone tested that under Virtualbox or VMWare?

  • I noticed that when I installed NT workstation, it was surprisingly quick, but you have to expect that on a VM

  • In Server space, NT 4.0 was just as significant as Windows 3.0 was on the desktop. You now had servers that normal people could interact with. It was amazing in IT all the VMS, Netware, OS/2, and Unix systems that we're dumped in favor of running Windows NT 4.0 .

    The lack of service pack 7, and the delays to 2000 led to the nightmare of NT 4+ option pack, which really should have been NT 5.0

    I've always had a soft spot for NT 4.0, on the desk and as a server.

  • I like to use this to test programs on this NT based OS

  • when i try to install it on VMware or virtualbox, it works until i come to the "Windows NT licens agreement" When i try to press "page down" as it say i should, it simply doesn't react. It is very annoying because i want to make a domain controller .. arrgh can any please help me or am i forced to make an old school server machine just for that reason >:( please tjek it out, and fix it, or give me a tip on how to get by. It should work on virtualbox and VMware, because everybody use that today.

    Is it possible to navigate with TAB-key (<- ->) and press the button with enter/space?
    Do you have a virtual PS2 or USB mouse in your configuration?

    Theres another popular VM, qemu. It is quite easy to use once you have figured out how to use it, example:

    qemu-img create -f qcow2 nt4disk.qcow2 4G
    qemu-system-i386 -m 128 -cpu pentium -hda nt4disk.qcow2 -cdrom image.iso -boot X
    where X stands for: C=disk, D=cdrom
