I am attepting to load NT on a PC with win95.
Boot drive is a maxtor 1.6 slave ia a Maxtor 5.1. 32 MB Ram
Cyrix 200mmx. NT seems to load OK until the Kernel Kicks in.
Then the system dumps. " Stop: 0x0000007B (OXFC813BD8, 0XC000000034, 0X0000000000,0X0000000000.  Inaccessable_Boot_Disk. I am also using the HD installation utility, MAX-BLAST , EZ-MAX as a Software CMOS. What is happening here?

You have answered it yourself, you can not use Maxblast or EZMax if you wish to run NT on the deive. Just create/delete the partitions from within th eNT instaler.. and remember: the install partition can NOT be bigger then 4GB.

Thank you for confirming my suspicion! Can you clarify the solution a little? Are you suggesting that I remove or uninstall the Maxtor software? If so, how do I reintegrate the drives into my system? Do I use the MB CMOS? Suggest / confirm an implementation strategy to perserve my Win 95 system and I'll toss in another 25 pt's.

Well, you were almost right. The EZ-Bios can be used...but you have to disable the one of the settings. I can't find where I wrote it, but I found it by looking in the obvious place, " SETUP FOR WINDOWS NT"....DUH!! Warning: (to myself), advise to all of you, READ the DOCUMENTATION!!!!
