A. The program being called is NTDETECT.COM. The best course of action is to use the DEBUG version of NTDETECT.COM.

In the support area of the NT installation cd (/support) there is a file NTDETECT.CHK. Follow the instructions to use it:

  1. Using the Diskcopy command create a copy of the first installation disk
    diskcopy a: a: (/v)
    This will create a copy of the first installation disk
  2. Copy the NTDETECT.COM from the support CD to the installation disk
    copy d:\support\ntdetect.chk a:ntdetect.com
  3. Then reboot the machine with the new version of the installation disk and each item will be shown as it is detected.
