As far as I know, the only way to run Windows on a PowerPC Mac is by using Virtual PC (which is slower than molasses in winter).
Whoops ... my apologies. Disk format looks to make no nevermind. Although NT 3.5.1 did run on some PowerPC systems, it didn't run on all of them. One of the ones it didn't run on were Macs:
Windows NT 3.51 added support for the PowerPC processor in 1995, specifically PReP-compliant systems such as the IBM Power Series desktops/laptops and Motorola PowerStack series; but despite meetings between Michael Spindler and Bill Gates, not on the Power Macintosh as the PReP compliant Power Macintosh project failed to ship.
Support for NT on PowerPC systems then was dropped in 1997:
... so it looks highly unlikely you'll be able to run your NT natively on the MacBook.
