Installing Windows NT Workstation from a CD

Installing Windows NT Workstation from a CD

After you complete the installation steps in the inside front cover of this book, you begin installing Windows NT Workstation using either a CD or Setup Disk 4. The first problem may occur if NT Setup prompts for Setup Disk 4 instead of reading your CD. If this happens, it means that your CD-ROM device is not a supported device. Windows NT supports only SCSI CD-ROM devices. If your CD-ROM is not a SCSI, you must install Windows NT Workstation in a different way.

If your CD-ROM device is supported in MS-DOS, you can install Windows NT Workstation from MS-DOS. If you do, your drive will use dual boot and the FAT file system instead of the NTFS. FAT (File Allocation Table file system) and NTFS (NT File System) are two different methods operating systems use to organize the files on disk. The NTFS system offers more security options when used with Windows NT. Your network and your system administrator will probably have a preference for the type of file system you use, so you should ask him or her before you install Windows NT. Alternatively, you can install Windows NT Workstation from the network. Ask your system administrator for more information.
