This error may also occur when upgrading to Windows NT 4.0 if the systemalready has Corel installed.
Cause
The Portdrvr.sys file installed by CD Creator version 2.0 is incompatiblewith Windows NT version 4.0.
Resolution
To correct this problem, use one of the following methods:
  • Restart your computer and press the SPACEBAR when you see the "Press spacebar NOW to invoke Hardware Profile/Last Known Good menu" message.

    NOTE: The last known good configuration works only if you have not successfully logged on since the problem began. If the error occurred during an upgrade to Windows NT 4.0, then this method will not work and you should use the following method.

    -or-
  • Rename Portdrvr.sys in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers folder.

    NOTE: If Windows NT is installed on a FAT partition, boot to MS-DOS using either a bootable floppy disk or the MS-DOS option on the startup menu. If Windows NT is installed on an NTFS partition, install a parallel copy of Windows NT to access the drive.

    -or-

    In Control Panel, double-click Devices, and then set the Startup option for Port Driver to disabled. Then restart your computer.

    You can also disable the Port Driver device from a parallel installation using the steps from the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
