Has anyone got this to work? I've tried and tried, but it keeps losing loads of files. I got the patch into it, but it just didn't want to happen :(.

Are you using a fast PC? I tried installing NT 3.1 inside VM, and it doesn't like the speed of my PC. Any suggestions?

Is the patch meant to be used on a beta?
I thought they were made for the retail builds.
A quick look at the retail builds equivalent 2 files reveals a different layout to the beta versions.

I'm trying to do it in VirtualPC. The Release version works fine, just as long as you patch it properly.

I'm ordering a new website soon, so my present one will have to come down, but I'm going to put up a VHD of WindowsNT 3.1, just with the patch on it, with final installation left to the user. PM me (so I don't forget), and I'll get in touch when it's ready.

Just actually read the posts and realised:

Oh, guff. I'll have to make a new patch then.

Someone seems to have a working patch, there's already screens of this here in the screens section,
if the setup screens are anything to go by, it looks as though it's taken from within a virtual machine
of some sort.

EDIT - and for the earlier build 404 as well it seems.

These screenshots are from KenOath and I'm sure he knows how to edit the inf files appropriately to fool the setup into thinking it's a 586 CPU (as that is what the patch does AFAIK).

I know how to do it, I just didn't know I'd have to do it again with a seperate set of files.

I've got it working. Decided to go with 386, not 586; the performance is pretty much the same.

Are there any earlier builds around? Love to see if there are some really early ones, like the Chicago builds in relation to Windows 95.
