I need some help

Post by betalearner »

I uploaded a file yesterday,the file name is "Microsoft Windows 7(Windows7 6.1.6568.1)(x64 Enterprise Milestone 1)(2008-03-13)(beta)[English][DVD].rar"
But today morning,The Administrator told me"We don't accept betas for FTP access, you need to provide something original."
This build isn't a fake build,it is real.
I'm very puzzled.

Prove to me the ISO is real.

You can't, since it's not.

Please do read the guidelines, I've told you this several times already.

Thank you.

I assume you forgot to scan the CD/DVD and upload that scan with the ISO file.

Simply scan the disc (according to the guide) and upload it, then it will be accepted. If you don't have a scanner, sometimes good-quality photos are also accepted, but this is not certain (depends on your camera and the image quality)
I upload stuff to archive.org from time to time. See here for everything that doesn't fit BA

The ISO is not original, so there's no disc to scan.

If this ISO file is not original, it can not be uploaded???

It can be uploaded, but you can't apply for FTP access with it. Again, it's all in the guidelines.

Just read the guidelines on what we expect from you for FTP access. I've repeatedly told you several times to read it, it will tell you what you need to know.
