I currently have a PC running Windows 95. I want to install Windows NT 4 Workstation. I don't want to have a dual boot, I just want to start over fresh. Can anyone help me with the steps and/or procedure on how to approach this. Thanks in advance.

I recommend using a utility put out by Western Digital. it is called ez-drive. It is now replaced me Ez-install that is probably better.

You should download the all-in-one utility called Data Lifeguard Tools v2.2. It is pretty much basicaly self explanitory. Hope i helped. Good luck

Question.....I'm not sure if my hard drive is a Western Digital. I was just wondering if this utility works on any other hard drives besides Western Digital?
