Create windows NT 4 set-up disks

The Windows NT 4 set-up disks can be created from the Windows NT (workstation or server) cd. The steps required are:

  1. Start-up an operating system (dos, wfw, windows 9x or NT)
  2. Insert the NT installation CD
  3. Start a command session ( or cmd.exe if NT)
  4. Move to the i386 folder on the CD.
  5. If you are running NT or Windows 9x enter the command:

    winnt32 /ox

    Any other 16 bit operating systems type:

    winnt /ox

  6. You will be asked to insert 3 disks

These notes have been tested with Windows NT4.
