                  Microsoft Windows NT 3.51
       Installing Windows NT 3.51 on the OmniBook 800


System Installation Requirements:

     HP OmniBook 800
     16MB of RAM (preferably 24-32MB)
     HP OmniBook 800 external CD-ROM drive connected via
       SCSI cable connection to back of HP OmniBook 800.
     HP OmniBook 800 external 3.5" floppy disk drive
       connected to HP OmniBook 800.
     
Important--Before Installation:

Make sure that you have the available HP OmniBook 800
specific drivers for Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 Workstation.
These drivers can be located in the
C:\OMNIBOOK\DRIVERS\WINNT\VIDEO and
C:\OMNIBOOK\DRIVERS\WINNT\SOUND directories.  These drivers
can also be found on the HP OmniBook 800 recovery CD-ROM
disk.  If you plan to format the drive in order to have
Windows NT as the sole operating system, make copies of
these drivers before formatting the drive.  If you do plan
on formatting the drive, backup any critical files that you
may need in the future.
This installation guide assumes that either the hard drive
is blank and has been formatted for a FAT (File Allocation
Table) file system or contains a resident operating system
of Microsoft Windows 95.  Also, installation is assumed to
be local over a CD-ROM drive.  For information on a
distributed share (or network installation) please refer to
the Microsoft Windows NT Resource Guide.  Specifically
chapter 3 "Customizing Windows NT Setup" for further
information.

Procedure:

IMPORTANT:  Before installing Windows NT 3.51 on the
OmniBook 800 you must make a BIOS level change.  Boot up the
OmniBook 800 and press the `F2' key to enter BIOS
configuration.  Under the `System' heading, choose `Boot
Devices' then put a check mark next to the `Force PCI Bridge
Configuration' title.  This will allow Windows NT to detect
all hardware in the OmniBook 800.  If this is not done, the
installation process will crash on the second boot up disk.

Confirm that the HP OmniBook 800 is completely turned off.
  If you are in a Windows 95 session, exit by choosing
  `Start Menu' then `Shutdown.'  Windows 95 will shutdown
  the OmniBook 800.

Confirm that the external CD-ROM drive and the external
  floppy disk drive are both connected to the OmniBook 800.
  Also, plug in the AC adapter to provide uninterrupted
  power during the installation process.

Insert the Windows NT 3.51 Workstation Setup Boot Disk into
  the external floppy disk drive.  Place the Windows NT
  3.51 Workstation CD-ROM into the external CD-ROM drive.

Power up the HP OmniBook 800 by pressing the `On/Off' button
  located at the top right side of the keyboard.  This will
  allow the boot process to load from the floppy drive.
  During this process, Windows NT will load all necessary
  files. If the boot process does not start, press the reset
  button.

The setup program will then prompt you for Setup Book Disk
  #2.  Insert the disk then press the `Enter' key.  Setup
  loads necessary files for installation from disk #2.

Setup will prompt you with the `Welcome to Setup' message.
  Press `Enter' to setup Windows NT 3.51 now.

Setup now prompts you to choose between `Express' or
  `Custom' setup options.  Press the `C' key to complete a
  Custom Setup.  Setup will ask you whether you want to
  specify your hardware components or have Windows NT find
  them.  Press the `Enter' key to let Windows NT auto-
  detect hardware components.  Setup will now ask for
  `Setup Book Disk #3'_place Setup Book Disk #3 into the
  floppy drive then press the `Enter' key.

Setup now begins a detection process to determine what type
  of SCSI drivers need to be loaded.  Depending on whether
  the SCSI device is detected or not, you should follow the
  applicable instructions on the screen.  The default is
  pressing `Enter' because the SCSI device is recognized
  and the device drivers are loaded.  In the case of the HP
  OmniBook 800, the `NCR PCI (53c810)' device will be
  detected and loaded.

Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 Workstation Setup will prompt you
  for the type of installation (floppy or CD-ROM).  Press
  `Enter' to choose CD-ROM installation.  Windows NT Setup
  will now prompt you with a summary of the hardware
  components in the HP OmniBook 800.  You need to make one
  change at this point_at the `Display' line change the
  setting from `VGA or Compatible' to `Standard VGA
  (640x480, 16 colors).'   The next Windows NT prompt will
  ask which drive you want to install Windows NT on.
  Choose the corresponding drive that meets your needs then
  press the `Enter' key.  Setup requires the user to make a
  file system type selection.  Follow the Windows NT
  installation instructions and choose the type of file
  system that meets your needs.

systems, please refer to the Microsoft Windows NT Resource
Guide within the Microsoft Windows NT Resource Kit.
Specifically chapter 5 `Windows NT File Systems and Advanced
Disk Management.'

Setup will ask if you want to perform an `exhaustive test'
  of the hard disk.  Follow the instructions on the screen
  to perform or to skip the test.  Setup will now copy
  files fromt he CD-ROM to the hard disk.  Setup will now
  ask you to remove the 3.5" floppy disk drive from the
  3.5" floppy drive and then press the `Enter' key to
  reboot.  Windows NT setup will now reboot the HP OmniBook
  800. Once the HP OmniBook has rebooted, Setup will
  continue.

Continue Windows NT Setup by entering your name and company
  name then press the `Enter' key.  Confirm the input by
  pressing the `Enter' key once again or choosing the
  `Continue' option.  You will now be prompted for the
  product identification number.  This number is stamped on
  the back of the Windows NT jacket.  You should enter the
  unique ID number and press the `Continue' option.  Follow
  by pressing `Continue' or pressing the `Enter' key to
  confirm the product ID number.

Windows NT requires you to provide a computer name to be
  recognized by a domain server (if applicable).  Type in a
  unique name (15 characters maximum) and choose
  `Continue.'  Choose `Continue' again to verify the
  computer name.

Setup will ask for you to enter the correct language.
  Choose `Continue' for English (default) or select the
  appropriate language.  Setup will now prompt you for
  local printer information.  Choose your printer or choose
  cancel to setup a printer later.

Setup will now begin `Network Card Setup.'  Choose
  `Continue, Continue, No Network, and then OK' for the
  next four screens to bypass network card installation.
  If you wish to install Windows NT networking, see the
  appropriate application note for your network adapter.
  Windows NT will now begin copying files from the CD-ROM
  to your hard disk drive.

After completion of CD-ROM file transfer, Setup will prompt
  you for an administrative password.  Enter this password
  then press the `Continue' box.  Setup will now prompt you
  for a local account.  Enter the correct information then
  press `Continue.'

All Program Groups will now be setup.  Windows NT 3.51 Setup
  will prompt you to enter the correct time and date.
  Enter this information and choose the `OK' box.

A detected display will now pop up asking the you to set the
  size and number of colors for the display.  Let Windows
  NT Setup keep the VGA display setting it has chosen by
  choosing the `OK' box.  Choose `OK' again to complete the
  video section of Windows NT Setup.  Since Windows NT will
  not let you set up the correct video display adapter at
  this time, later in this chapter instructions will be
  given on changing the video display adapter to the
  correct settings.

Windows NT 3.51 Workstation reports that it is saving
  configuration information.  Windows NT will now reboot
  the OmniBook 800.  After completion of the reboot,
  Windows NT 3.51 will be successfully installed on the HP
  OmniBook 800.
