Where did you get it from? And I can't tell for sure if it qualifies without taking a look at it. And what build is it?

That's what I suspect as well, which is why I need a source for it. I've never seen these kind of WIMs before, especially not OEM ones as Microsoft doesn't make the OEM configs themselves.

Pretty sure this is illegal. If it is not an ORIGINAL image - direct from Microsoft or an OEM, it will NOT be accepted. If it's an AiO ISO you got from TPB or something like what it looks like, no way is it going to be accepted.

If they came to you or your source via torrent and have been modified / cracked then they're not original. TPB is a popular torrent site which hosts many hackjobs like this appears to be

Ps.i think it is illegal,but i want to get a ftp access,but my home just have a lot of old illegal copies of old software,and none if my friends have.It is too hard to get a unique,legal,old or new cipy for me,as a student in hong kong. Maybe its because hong kong is a place wants everything is the newest,and the ild ones,no one will rember them,they just throw it. Sigh......

This site is for betas and abandonware. While BA accepts software that is still supported in the future, it does not accept hackjobs or illegal cracks or mods or whatever. If you want access to old software, the olddos FTP and WinWorld have stuff too. Admittedly not as good as BA but until you find some new stuff that is acceptable to upload they'll have to do.

And one thing is for sure,this is not from tpb!!
I think it is because in uk or usa countries doesnt have any of these.But in Hong Kong or Mainland China,when people gove their pc to fix,they will use some kind of theese images.Even my friend’s father use this kind of image.And he said they pay money to msft for every year.To use it legally.

Yes, but is is NOT ORIGINAL so we won't accept it. It is a hackjob. We only take ORIGINAL contributions, not your friend's father's nlited illegal piracy disc.

No, you accept original software that we don't have. It can be a game, whatever - I submitted RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, for example. There's still some stuff missing, too - I was asked to upload a Dell Vista DVD that I sadly lost. If it's an original disk then we'll accept it.

We just don't take hackjobs - this is for preserving software history, not modern hackjobs. They go on torrent sites.

Try one of these shops, they apparently have lots of old PC games too:
http://pinoy-n.com/forum/showthread.php ... Hong-Kong)

From my experience with similar shops in Japan they have lots of "uninteresting" (for collectors) games up for grabs for a few bucks (in addition to real collectors items for up to a few hundred). Just try to find something in English if possible ;-)
Golden Computer Center
- If you take the HK MTR to the Sham Shui Po Station, exit by Golden Computer Center & you'll find 2 floors of what is pretty much Greenhills-in-Hong-Kong... Loads of PC software, hardware, abubuts & useless wonders (I bought a really nice keyboard brush. Yes, a keyboard brush). The upper floor has all the latest games for all the current systems (360,PS3,Wii,DS,PSP, etc.). There was one store that had a Famicom Disk System on display, but not for sale. I was able to find a copy of Ordyne for the PC-Engine, as well as a Gameboy Printer & Camera.

FOR CURRENT GAMING = A+
PC STUFF = A++++
FOR RETRO GAMING = C-

ORIENTAL 188
- Take the MTR to Wan Chai & find yourself along Hennessy Road. Walk down towards Heard Street (it would be best to have an idea where Heard St. is so you can walk in the right direction. Keep a map or GPS handy.). Expect a 5-10 minute walk, or 5 minute brisk walk. Once you get to the corner of Heard St., turn into it & walk to the end. At the first corner, you should see Oriental 188 right beside you. It's pretty hard to miss, but is a major place for teens & students, so expect lots of schoolgirls & kids mixing puberty with hobbies. Oriental 188 is a 4 or 5 storey building with everything you could want for with regards to Otaku-hunger. Toys, games, robots, porn (uh...), handhelds, anime, DVDs, porn (there's a lot talaga...) are all over the place, and it's best to devote about 2 hours to fully scour the building for stuff on your checklist. I was able to score a US version 3DS here for P10,000 equivalent. But my favorite find was a store on the top floor called, Jo-Jo House, that specializes in EVERY RETRO GAME SYSTEM you can think of! The prices can get pretty pricey, but it makes up in sheer variety & selection. In that tiny, 5 square-meter room, the store owner (Mr. Joe himself) has one of the best selections of games I've ever seen. He speaks very little english, but all the games & systems you can think of were all piled up with him in that store. Mostly Japanese copies, but there were US games as well. I spotted a hefty 20-game stack of Sega Master System games ranging from Rocky to Fantasy Zone II. He had an original HK Famicom still in the box, as well as a copy of Earthbound. Loads of Famicom games, Super Famicom & Super NES, as well as baskets of GameBoy games. I was particularly happy to score a very rare "Star Wars - Episode I: Racer" game that had a AA battery slot for an added rumble feature. Very cool! It cost me about HK$200. Other games are a bit overpriced (the complete Gameboy Rockman series for HK$1,000...what?!!), but overall the store is a must-see for collectors & a great place to find gems that are hard to find.

FOR CURRENT GAMING = A++
PC STUFF = A+
FOR RETRO GAMING = B+

Toyzone
- If you find yourself in Causeway Bay, try to find your way to Sugar Street & look for a sliver building. I think it's called Causeway Bay Commercial Building, but I could be mistaken. Anyway, it's near a corner street with an overhead walkway & a pedestrian staircase. Once you spot the building, go up to the 16th floor & you'll find a haven for old & new toys, as well as a tiny little glass display case with old video games, game & watches & a pretty surprising selection of games. As is the practice of many stores in Greenhills, all of these games & items are on consignment, so it's a pretty good place to find cheaply-priced games, since oftentimes the previous owner of the games sets a low price for them to be able to sell them at the store easy. I was able to find a near-mint copy of pretty rare Ninja Ryukenden (Ninja Gaiden) for the PC-Engine for only HK$250 (which normally sells for at least USD$60 on eBay).

FOR CURRENT GAMING = F
PC STUFF = FF--
FOR RETRO GAMING = A or B or F. Depending on what they have. Hahaha!
and yes, it took me literally 60 seconds to find that on Google. You can try this as well, just type "retro pc gaming hong-kong" or something similat into the text field and click "search". It's not rocket science, you know?
I upload stuff to archive.org from time to time. See here for everything that doesn't fit BA
