problem reinstall ati 3dRage2C AGP on NT4 SP3

I had installed the pilot correctly on the server. After a problem of hardware drive,
Windows NT 4.0 refuses to make function all cards ATI. Windows NT 4.0 refuses to
function as much with a card PCI(rage2+DVD), same result with a card AGP
(rage2C). However if I use an old copy of security (Backup) of my server NT, all
functions perfectly! Unfortunately, I really need to restore with my most
recent backup. It is as if the current configuration of my server NT refuses the installation of a
card ATI! However, I always execute the Pack3 service before each installation. The only
pilot which functions corectly is basic pilot ATI made by Microsoft version 4.0. My
server Windows NT has no material conflict. Windows NT always starts again without
making functional card ATI. PLEASE help me.

If you are doing an unattended instalation ...
1) Replace the HAL.dll of the NT4 source with the HAL.dll that comes with SP3
2) Make sure that in your unattended text file you include extra OEM files which are the ati.sys and oemsetup.inf from the latest rage2 drivers

Check  for the latest in drivers.  I have found them to be very good and they often have more recent drivers than available on the NT4.0 CD.  Use the Canada site for the drivers.
