NT4 Install Glitch

Hi All...

Problem:

I'm trying to install NT4 workstation on a Micron notebook computer, as a secondary O/S along with Win95. I boot from the supplied Setup disks.

When I get to disk #2, I get the following STOP error message right after the screen says loading "FAT file system":

STOP: Inaccessible_Boot_Device (plus other information)

The message suggests that I "set recovery options in System control panel or the /CRASHDEBUG system start option."

I cannot find any "recovery options" in my Win95 System control panel, and I don't know what "the /CRASHDEBUG system start option" is.

Current System Configuration:

Micron Millennia TransPort notebook computer
P133
48MB RAM
Win95
C drive: 1.3GB (the boot drive...almost full...about 150MB free)
D/E/F/G/H drive: 2.1GB total (all FAT partitions...D primary, rest logical...all space free)

Any suggestions or help much appreciated.

Start your install from a DOS command line prompt, and add the /CRASHDEBUG as a switch.

150 megs on the boot is tight. Maybe too tight. If if you wish to redirect WinNT files to 'D' as I do with win95 on C for duel boot options, 150 megs may hoze you. I don't belvieve that is enought room for say, installing service pak 2, after you successfully install nt. Do some clean up first.
