Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Thanks! Got a Pressario yesterday (not the model you listed but according to images on the internet it's in the same case).

If anyone is interested in the QuickRestore Compaq Presario Model 5736/5726 PC (Dutch) then let me know. :-)

Anyway, do you also have images of the CD's? (download is not yet complete so maybe it's in the zip files but can not check that at the moment)

For laughs and giggles I've tried to install Windows 98 using this Compaq restore disk. It was intresting attempting to make it work

It relies entirely on a modified copy of some PowerQuest (now owned by Norton) Imaging tool, and the image files are password locked and requires you to use the included PowerQuest which contains the password embedded in it.

Digging up old threads...

Yes, the main PQI file (DATA\EN\FACTORY.PQI) inside the first CD is password locked (bummer). You can explore the PQI files with PoweQuest's Image Explorer. The 2002 version works for me.

I was looking for the Compaq Presario 7400 series (AMD processor, VIA chipset, Compaq "Camaro" motherboard) QuickRestore CDs, although a 7500 should work to a certain point (everything but chipset and video drivers), all the old compaq software is there, Just!Burn, Works, McAfee, RioPort Jukebox, Backweb, EAQ, etc, compressed in ZIP files in the CPQDRV folder.
