How do I run HPFS under NT 4.0?

A. If you want NT support for HPFS, you can upgrade from 3.51 to 4.0 which will retain HPFS support. You can manually install the 3.51 driver under NT 4.0, however this is not supported by Microsoft.

  1. Copy the 3.51 pinball.sys to the NT 4.0 %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers directory.
  2. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  3. Goto the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
  4. From the Edit menu, select "New Key"
  5. In the form entry box which appears, enter Pinball as the Key Name. Leave the class field blank, and click OK
  6. Highlight the new Pinball key in the editor's left panel and select New Dword from the Edit menu
  7. Enter a name of ErrorControl and click OK
  8. Double click ErrorControl and set to "0x1"
  9. Highlight Pinball again and select "New String" from the Edit menu with name "Group" click OK
  10. Double click Group and set to "Boot file system"
  11. Highlight Pinball again and select "New DWORD" from the Edit menu with name "Start" click OK
  12. Double click Start and set to "0x1"
  13. Highlight Pinball again and select "New DWORD" from the Edit menu with name "Type" click OK
