I need to get a copy of winodws nt for my father who has some expensive CAD software that requires it.

Where can I get a copy of Win NT? I heard it is not made anymore. Can it be downloaded?

Also can it be dual booted with XP on NTFS.

Thanks,

LTP

ebay

$12

Yes, it can be dual booted,but you will have more luck installing it first, then xp.

The bigger issue is drivers for the hardware in the machine. Since the OS is no longer built, you may have difficulty getting all of dad's hardware to work on it...anything USB comes to mind....
