I don't know if this helps, but did you try to install it on MS Virtual Server 2005?

What kind of VM?

Is this some strange limit of NTFS 1.1. How large is the virtual disk you are trying to make? Have you tried installing the OS on a 1 gig partition?

You may need to create a smaller partition for Windows NT 4, and install it in the first 4G.

I remember about replacing some files in the install, that will allow you to install it on a diskette of any size. (atapi.sys thing).

NTFS 1.0 has a restriction of 4GB
FAT16 has a restriction of 2GB
FAT32 is allowed on NT SP4+ and it could be any size. But Size greater than 32GB is slow. (I'm not sure about this one, this option is allowed on WIndows 98/Me since it doesn't support NTFS)
