Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

The unmodified version of this build cannot be normally installed (via CD boot) due to a bugcheck during setup. The user can either use a DOS boot disk to partition and format the drive and then run setup from there, or can replace cdrom.sy_ file in the i386 folder on the CD with the one from a different build.

Also, sometimes when or upgrading from Windows via WINNT32.EXE, Setup asks the user to insert the installation disc during the text-mode part, despite already being inserted. This can also be a fault with the CD-ROM driver. It is recommended to select "Install a new version" instead, go to "Advanced Options..." and select "Copy all Setup files from CD-ROM to the hard disk".
