    We have a network running Windows NT 4.0 (service pack 6). We also have a mirror set of two 20Mb disk. Recently we installed a 32 Mb disk as a secondary disk. When we try to format it thru Disk Manager we receive "Unable to complete format" at the end of format process.

    In Microsoft Knowledge Base we found out that there is a bug that should be fix by the SP 4, but isn't this fix suppose to be included in SP 6.

    Would be OKAY to install SP 4 if we already have SP 6?

    The drive letter has been assigned and there is no other OS or file system on it? Is it an IDE or SCSI drive? I am sure you mean 32GB and not 32MB....LOL

    Don't put an older service pack on top of a newer one, this can cause the system to become unstable. And yes service pack 6a should include all the prior service pack fixes.

    If you have a workstation handy, install the disk in it, format it then try it in the server.
