    Hello Guys,
    I have a problem installing Windows NT Server 3.51 on Virtual Machine.
    I have tried three different ISO image files of NT Server 3.51 but the it always gives error at the point of GUI setup.

    The installation works great till boot. But after boot, i.e. at the point of GUI setup, it always states some or other file corrupt. As I stated before, I have tried three different ISO's, so I don't thing there is any problem with the image file. I think I am doing something wrong with the installation. Can anyone suggest me what to do ? The installation is on Virtual PC 2007 with the following specifications:

    RAM: 64 MB
    HDD: 4096 MB (Formatted with NTFS, also tried the installation with FAT)

    Please help.
    Thanks in advance!

    PS: I have also tried installing Windows NT Server 3.51 from command line i.e. booting a MS-DOS floppy disk and then running from the CD-ROM C:\I386\winnt.exe , but of no help. It gives the same output.
