    You have a Windows NT 4.0 Server with Service Pack 3 installed that you want to install on a Windows 2000 Server in a dual-boot configuration. The WinNT files are located on a 2 GB NTFS partition. After you complete the installation of Windows 2000 Server, you discover that Windows NT 4.0 can no longer access its own 2 GB partition. What should you have done in this situation before installing Windows 2000, in order to create a functional NT/2000 dual-boot machine?

    a. Run Winnt32.exe with the /cmdcons switch

    b. Install Service Pack 4 or higher for Windows NT 4.0

    c. Create a set of Windows 2000 boot disks, and start the installation using the boot disks

    d. Run CHKDSK /f from a WinNT command prompt

    Of the options, I say B as well, but I'll be interested in the reasons.

    I would have thought that SP4 for NT4.0 would only be an issue if upgrading the installation to w2k. I can't see there being an issue with the existing install as part of dual-boot. As such, I'm not sure that B is right, but what the h...

    If we're all just playing off of nugget's original and courageous response and he's wrong, then we all go down in flames today. :wink:

    Nice one Flex, a prompt and accurate response, mate. Thanks for that.

    Another example of why I love this place- simple discussion ends up in learning something new. :thumbleft

    This gets me every time.

    Now I have laods of questions about what the differences are, this that and t'other.
    I always like to know all the little details that I won't need for the exam.
    The same happened with the recovery question recently.
    I know what i need to know for the exam but ti still bugs me, why, this why that.Insatiable curiosity I think.Can't be a bad thing I suppose, but it did kill the cat.

    For example what are all of the differences, I mean all the subtle differences, which make a difference.How does version 5 work, and how does it differ to 4 in every way.

    Will have to investigate :police and find some links I think.

    Well I think Flex has posted the answer for me, but here's the "official answer".

    The correct answer is,

    B. Install Service Pack 4 or higher for Windows NT 4.0.

    Windows 2000 uses the NTFS 5 file system, an enhanced version of NTFS. Windows NT 4.0 is not natively compatible with NTFS 5. You must install Service Pack 4 or greater in order to have NTFS 5 support for WinNT.

    Running Winnt32.exe /cmdcons installs the Recovery Console during the Windows 2000 installation.

    Starting the installation from the Windows 2000 boot disks will not solve this issue, nor will running the CHKDSK utility.
