LBA-48 Support for Windows NT 4.0 and slipstream SP6a

Recommended Posts

I have a copy of Windows NT 4.0 Server, for Windows 2000 and XP slipstream Service Pack 3 with nLite, but there is a tool to slipstream SP6a on NT 4? Also i need support for LBA-48 since my disk is 750GB.

Implementing 48-Bit LBA is not a particularly difficult task but there doesn't seem to be much interest. Only one person was interested in my Package for Windows 2000.

My answer is late and sketchy, sorry... I only tried Nt4 briefly, so this is more repeating what I've read than first-hand experience.

Most slipstream tools for 2k and later base on the slipstream capability that Microsoft built in the updates. This did not exist for Nt4.

Nevertheless, some enthusiasts did write software to slipstream updates into Nt4, including the Sp6a. Do I remember that at least 3 such exist? I don't have my notices here.

I saw a workaround, using an F6 diskette, to provide Lba access to a disk right from the beginning of an installation. Possibly a servicepacked version of acpi.sys on the diskette, plus some text files telling to use it. Whether this can provide Lba48 too?

My answer may be 40dB behind what you already know... Apologies in advance.

In this case, I would patch the relevant files and burn a new CD.
