To my surprise, NT 3.1 booted up fine on Q6850 3Ghz quad core system on a Intel G41 board. It looks like it doesn't care about too many Ghz, RAM and cores - so I will try to make it work on my Ryzen 3900x system which is already NT 3.51/4 compatible. All I need maybe is a compatible PCI controller which has drivers for NT 3.1?
G41 chipset was announced in late 2008 and somehow NT 3.1 from 1993 (without any service packs) could initialize the IDE adapter.
So, any idea what PCI-IDE adapters, probably from 1994-1997 era, can work with NT 3.1? I don't want to mess with SCSI. I have tried some PCI-IDE NT4 compatible adapters with no success. (these adapters work fine with NT 3.51, even they are listed as NT4 compatible only)
I'm fully aware that NT 3.1 it's the least useful in the family, but being the first 32bit system it deserves a special treatment...
