Stop Error 24 (NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM) Windows NT Enterprise 4.0

I've been trying to install NT enterprise edition server on the dual PII 266 machine, and every time I get Stop error 0x00000024 NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM it seems that in case I use single processor, everything runs fine, however as soon as I get second processor in - it crashes.

HARDWARE:
SuperMicro 6PDBS Motherboard
Mylex 950R UW SCSI controller
Seagate Medalist Pro 4.5 Gb Hard Drive x 2
SDRAM 64x2 or 128x1 (same result)

Help!

I guess, you are booting from CD. As your Mylex is not in the native driver list, you have to boot from the setup floppies. (I know, that you can add the driver even when you boot from CD, but it doesn't work)

This is the info I got it from the technet, I hope it could help you.

STOP: 0x00000024 (parameter, parameter, parameter, parameter) NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
This is a Windows NT Executive character-mode STOP message. It indicates an NTFS file system problem.
Restart and set the Recovery options in the System Control Panel or the /CRASHDEBUG system start option. If this message reappears, contact your system administrator or technical support group. Be sure to note any messages you see to pass on to your technical support group.

I had this happen to me once on a server. I believe that I was installing to an NTFS partition. Are you?

If I remember right I was able to install to FAT instead of NTFS and then convert to NTFS after the installation and it worked fine. You may want to give that a try. If you are already installing to a FAT partition, then I'm not sure.

Hope that helps.
