Compiled with the SDK tools they ship with (and with Visual C++ 1.0 in NT 3.1 RTM), I'm offering updated atapi.sys drivers for NT 3.10, more specifically from builds 297 onwards.

NT 3.10 Build 297 with source and compiler/link automated batch file + CD-ROM ISO test image:

NT 3.10 Build 340 with source:

NT 3.10 Build 511 with source (also works on 404 and 438) + Floppy Disk image for driver installation during the Text-based setup:
https://yadi.sk/d/ItcmL3_vvp5Eb

I hope this helps most NT 3.1 setups without SCSI, be it real hardware or emulated.

Note: for NT 3.10 Build 297 you need to patch setupapp.exe at offset 0x8DC2 (changing 74 to EB) for a proper detection during the Text-based setup from the 1.2MB boot disk. Same goes for 340, but at offset 0x7305.
Note2: for NT 3.10 Build 511+ (includes 528 and the Japanese checked 531) you need scsicdrm.sys and scsiport.sys from 438 otherwise you will have a hard time with CD-ROM images smaller than 150MB. No patch is required on setupapp.exe in this version of the driver.

Does this works in Final Windows NT 3.1?

I tried this method, it works but on some languages from problems

Here's what happens in the Japanese version Build 531:

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

Every time I try to install the operating system I get the error in the penultimate image


Here's what happens in the Dutch version 3.10.5098.1

Image Image

It comes out this error and can not continue with the installation


Last problem detected ... it works perfectly on VirtualBox, QEMU... but on VMWare with any configuration it exits this error

Image Image


If anyone has a solution or answer to these problems I would be very happy

Thank you

VMware has problems with this, already known, so, don't use it for NT 3.1.

Note: 3.10.5098.1 is actually 3.10.511.1, don't trust the file version of the kernel, just trust what's actually inside the kernel.

Also on 86box, you may use the SCSI adapters it emulates instead of atapi, for example, the Trantor 130B, Buslogic ISA/MCA/VLB/PCI (ISA compatibility), Aha154x or Aha164x MCA and 53c810 PCI, all of which have drivers for NT 3.1, and many of which NT 3.1 has built-in drivers for.
