NT installation disk #1 uses ntdetect.com to discover
the hardware. If NT's installation process fails during hardware detection (disk
#1), create a debug version of disk #1 by replacing ntdetect.com on Installation
disk #1 with the debug version:
- Make a copy of installation disk#1 :
diskcopy a: a: /v
- copy debug version on NT installation CD from \support\ntdetect.chk to
installation disk #1:
copy d:\support\ntdetect\chk a:\ntdetect.com
Reboot using the debug version of disk #1 and the debug version of
Ntdetect.com will display hardware information on the screen as it is detected.
To move to the next screen, press any key. Continue until Setup hangs.
