I have an old Duron 800Mhz Via chipset motherboard with NT 4.0 SP6 operating system. The motherboard is actually embedded in a 2004 kyocera copy machine with a PCI riser card that runs the copier.
As the board boots up it hangs on the blue NT boot screen after displaying 4 or 5 dots.
I've not worked with NT much and it has been a long time anyway. I would appreciate any advice on the best way to revive the OS. I can buy an old copy of NT4 if necessary.
I think I might need to take care when reinstalling the OS since the Kyocera riser card probably requires a driver located on the hard drive.
In the meantime I am going to try to hook up an ide hard drive with an OS (98 or XP) to see if it will boot.
Thanks in advance. Sorry if I'm rambling.
