Read the full story here


  • 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.

  • 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

  • Does anyone have the service packs for Windows NT Terminal Server - Alpha processor, because they are missing form here and the Microsoft links are broken except for SP6A, which is useless without SP6 please.


  • Are you sure such things even exist?

    TSE SP5 was available in 4 forms: for i386 and alpha, standard and high enryption:

    TSE SP6 was apparently released on in high encryption and for i386:

    You can grab some packs from here:

    But not sure if these are SP5 or SP6

  • Hi, It looks like none of these locations have the SP6 base service pack, as I can only find SP6a, which has SP6 as a prerequisite.
    Or maybe I should migrate to the Win Server 2000 RC2 and work out how to extend the expiry date?
    Your thought?

  • ENG workstation version iso is broken.

    Please be more specific, do you mean the VMware version or the SP1 version?
    Edit: I saw your post. Try to use instead the VMware image
    @SomeGuy there's no English version of NT 4.0 Workstation wihtout any SP. This one: Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Workstation (4.00.1381.1) [Korean] (ISO) marked as English is labelled with [Korean], and the only english one is with the SP1

    SP6a is a full service pack. You do not need SP6 or any other service pack before installing SP6a. The 'a' variant is a fixed version of the original SP6, released just a few days after the original SP6. The Q246009 patch that @andrewrfp referred to earlier is for those who installed the original SP6. Those who install SP6a do not need that.

  • How does one contribute Official Software? I have Windows NT 4.0 SP6 CD. Also does anyone have the Product ID or Product Key for said version of Windows?

  • If it's SP6a (and not just SP6) in the languages specified on the NT4 Patches page, it's already here.

    If it's something that is not here already, then use a file-sharing site like Mega and post the full link (with decryption key) here or PM @SomeGuy.

  • Nice version. Debug bootscreen, no more futzing around with C:/>win, and stuff.

  • please upload a korean windows nt 4.0 server

  • I can't find the NT 4.0 workstation SP6!?How can I download it?

    @Big Smoke, you have to download & install it separately. Click on the "Patches" button at the top of the screen, then download "Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a".
