Hardware Compatibility with Windows NT Workstation 4.0

Some hardware devices that that are supported by Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation version 4.0 also work on Windows Vista; however, it is best to run Setup in Check Upgrade Only mode to check for driver compatibility issues before upgrading the operating system. Windows Vista does not support drivers, including third-party drivers that worked on Windows NT Workstation 4.0. You need to obtain an updated driver for Windows Vista from the device manufacturer.

Typically, you can address issues concerning deployment or upgrade of Windows NT Workstation 4.0 during the test phase of deployment.

To access an NTFS volume that has been upgraded for Windows Vista, you need to be running Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 or later.
