Mouse and Keyboard stopped working when installing Windows NT 4.0.
Installation can not continue without key board or mouse.

Maybe there are no drivers for your mouse and keyboard for Windows NT 4.0

Could you also elaborate on your problem a bit?

Thanks stealthinator for trying to help.
I am trying to install NT 4.0 on a p4 3ghz 2gb ram 80g h drive.
There is NO drivers for any device on NT 4 at the installation time.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
You have to use Serial ( Mouse & Keyboard ) to work around.
for any body who will need to do what i did .

USB would not work because there is no drivers installed yet.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
my system does not have A drive - can not use DOS BOOT.
How to install NT4.0 on a computer from scratch?
Dos can only see 2gb space.

I am trying to make DUAL BOOT for NT & another OS.

Thanks again

Hmmm... of course as this a fresh disk and you're installing it from scratch, there would be no drivers... what is the other OS you're trying to dual boot?

Just a suggestion, but maybe you could run Windows NT as a virtual machine inside of the other OS, if it's a more recent version of windows. Unfortunately, you cannot dual boot an older OS with a new one.

If your system is USB, NT4 does not have USB drivers. If you don't have a floppy disk, either boot off the NT4 CD or buy a floppy drive.
