Post subject:  I can't install Windows NT 5.0 Build 2072+ in VirtualBox

When I try to boot the system ISO to be able to install this build or a higher one, it simply stays until Setup is starting Windows 2000. Is there any way to fix it?

And if not, how can I install a graphics driver to Windows NT that works with VMware? (because in that virtualizer it works, but I only have the 16 colors mode), because the ones I have don't work for me.

Try VBE driver, maybe? :o

I'm sorry, but it didn't work out. I got the STOP screen. Possibly because the system I'm using on the VM is a beta and that driver expects updated versions of Windows (such as a Windows NT 4 SP6 or Windows 2000 SP4).

If someone has another solution, you can put it here.

Just don't use VirtualBox or VMware for some of these Windows NT 5.0 betas. Use PCem or 86Box, they emulate a real machine from around the time these builds came out and thus have less problems. Alongside, you can also get the graphics card to work on all of these.

Also, even if you could get it to install in VirtualBox, I highly doubt that you'll be able to install a graphic driver in it anyways.

Use PCem with K6 emulation..slower but avoids incompatibility issues

1. Do you know of any ROM that can boot from CD-ROM? The ROMs I have can't do that. I did the classic method of starting from MS-DOS, but I got this.

2. More than the reason that I go slow like the PCs of that time, my processor is not able to keep emulating 100% a processor with the minimum requirements to run that system.

I have a video driver for VirtualBox that works for any version of Windows NT up to Windows 7. That's why I had the idea to install it there.

I'm going to try.

86Box's Shuttle HOT-557 ought to work fine in most cases.

That's quite vague. What is your exact guest configuration? What PC do you run the emulator on?

Intel Core i3-4160 @ 3.60Ghz, Pentium 166 for the guest

Oh, I have the same CPU. From my observations, Pentium 75 should run at more or less full speed. NT5 is not particularly demanding in terms of CPU speed.
