I'm trying to virtualize a nt server 4.0 sp1. When I run the vmware converter it says that is must be at least sp3. However I can't even find this on MSDN. Has anyone had a similar experience and found a relatively painless solution. I'm trying not to reinvent the wheel here. Thanks
While echoing the "this should have been destroyed years ago" sentiment, you can download NT 4.0's various service packs at the ftp link below. (The installer .exes for the Service Packs are under the relevant i386 directory, as is the Windows way.)
(Hotfixes too, and even what passed for NT utilities, back in the day.)
The latest Windows NT 4.0 service pack is Service Pack 6a.
Microsoft no longer distributes NT 4.0 service packs on its Web site, though as @HopelessN00b noted in his answer, they can still be found on MS's FTP site.
Finally, whatever it is probably should have been decommissioned years ago. All support for Windows NT 4.0 ended in 2004.
Can't stop smiling about this one. You're right, most P2V tools require SP3 onwards. Looks like even the terminal service pack (6A) no longer exists on MS's site (no suprise there then!). However, a quick google brought be to:
Now, I've heard of this site before, but do not know whether the files on there are genuine files. Download at your own risk!
