Known issues


  • The original ISO is bootable, however soon after it boots an error (BSOD) shows up and computer reboots. This build has to be installed either by booting computer from floppy disk (for example using Windows 98 boot disk) or hard disk (for example using existing DOS installation) and then launching \I386\WINNT.EXE from the 1796.1 CD. It is also possible to upgrade from existing Windows NT 4 installation.


  • FDC.SYS, the floppy disk controller driver, may cause problems and BSODs every time few minutes after launching Windows. If it does, try to delete this file or replace it with the FDC.SYS from build 1877.
