JSI Tip 1920. How can I find out where a WinNT install is failing on Setup Disk 1?

If your install fails on Setup Disk 1, it is probably hardware.

To determine where:

1. Make a copy of the Setup Disk 1.

2. Copy <CD-ROM:>\SUPPORT\DEBUG\I386\NTDETECT.CHK to A:\NTDETECT.COM

3. Install using the modified Setup Disk 1. The debug version of NTDETECT should let you identify the problem hardware.
