Are you POSITIVE that it was a fat 16 partition and not fat32 ?
Try Ranish Partition manager at
                         http://www.users.intercom.com/~ranish/part/
                         The primer will help you understand what you are doing.
                     
Make sure you have fat 16. If possible, boot it from a dos Ver 6 floppy and format it, that way you can be sure.
I hope this helps.

Can you boot with the CD-Rom? If yes then could you check if you can install winnt on this way with the setup parameter winnt /b.

One 13.5 Gig FAT16 partition ?
Hmmmm..
NT needs to live in the first 1024 cylinders (<2Gig), so try creating a 2048Mb primary partition and installing NT into it.

LermitteCommented:
When you are installing Windows NT 4.0, you can create a system partition with a
maximum size of 4 GB. This occurs because Setup first formats the partition using the FAT file system. If you want to use an NTFS partition, the partition is converted to NTFS after the first reboot. The FAT file system has a file system limitation (unrelated to any BIOS limitations) of 4 GB. When you perform an unattended installation, use of the ExtendOEMPartition directive in an Unattend.txt file can expand the system partition to a maximum of 7.8 GB.

if you will read the first time i tried, my drive was partitioned with a primary (active) of 2ooomegs,the rest broken into logicals,when this did not work i installed win95 in order to use it to load nt from cdrom the way others in this topic area have advised,i have followed the proper install procedures and met all the needed criteria so im still thinking it must be comething in the hardware that im over looking, are there any special perameters that nt needs to work withp pc100 ram?can it be something in the bios im over looking?

SysExpertCommented:
When you installed NT, did you try installing it to one of the other partitions , or haven't you even reached that point ? If it bombs right after the DOS copy on the first reboot, it is probably a H/w error, RAM or cache possibly.

LermitteCommented:
when you install NT from a win95 partition install you this with the winnt32.exe setup?

see at you cmos.

a.Disable the 32-bit I/O option in CMOS.
 
b. Disable the read-ahead mode in CMOS.
 
c. Change mode from pio-X to standard. -o

Also disable the plug and play BIOS option ( NT is not a plug n play operating system ).

ok all, i did disable all the above mentioned dettings in cmose also installed service pack3 and service pack4, in that order first, no more stop errors but when it starts copying files after choosing which partion it tells me it cannot copy these files,try to skip a file and the next said the same. I am going to accept lermites answer even though it wasn't complete it steered me thew right way and close this out i thank you all and if any one has suggestion on latsest problem please advise
