Hi,

Is it possible to run (install/use) Windows NT 4.0 on a Dell Inspiron 15R -5537 (which came with Windows 8). If it is not possible to run NT 4,0 on that machine, can you run Windows NT 4.0 on a computer that was built for Windows 8 or 10 or one with a Haswell proccessor? I am currently running Windows 2000 on that machine. And no, using a VM is not an option. I am open to doing anything.

I would try to install NT 4.0 and select the Standard PC hal, but it would give me the 0x0000007B error every time.
