I tried installing Windows NT 4.0 workstation and server but both hangup with the bad blue screen giving all sorts of numbers and this error IRQL_LESS THAN OR ZERO. Why is this?? This happens when I have booted with the three floppies almost all drivers have been installed etc. and the CD-ROM has been recognized. I have a pentium 133 with 32 Mb ram, Primary IDE is 1.7 Gb hard disk and Secondary IDE is Creative 18x CD-ROM, and a Creative SB16 FMP sound card. Video Card is Cirrus Logic 5436.

IMP. Windows 95 run without any hitches but I want to move to WinNT.

More :: --> I tried installing both ways with a clean drive and with Win95 . No success either way same error
File :: --> File was ntoskrnl.exe and the stop code was 0x000000000a IRQL line is 2
