When you reinstall Windows NT, Setup does not take into account the existing Windows NT files when checking for free disk space. As a result, to reinstall Windows NT, you need to have 80 megabytes (MB) of free space. If you do not have 80 MB of free space and you cannot remove enough files to free up 80 MB, you must remove your current Windows NT installation before reinstalling.
