Hi currently I was trying to install Windows NT 4.0 server on a IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670 server with dual pentium 4 Xeon 3.2GB processors, and 3 GB of RAM. The installation was not successful. I was given two error msg " OS/2 !! SYS01475, OS/2 !! SYS02027", after creating/formatting the system partition and reboot.
I am just wondering if Windows NT 4.0 Server is not compatible with pentium 4 Xeon processor. Anyone has any idea? I have tried to search IBM website, but got no answer. I will called IBM for help tomorrow, but hope if anyone here can help me fast.

Seems like the boot sector wasn't written correctly. It might be connected with the fact that you have 3GB of RAM; NT4 without Service Packs supports only 2GB. Try to remove 1 GB during the installation, install SP6a, put the memory back in.

Systems with 4 GB or More of RAM Cannot Boot Windows NT 4.0

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
