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).

FTP Access

I've got a new project going on: Plug and Play in DOS. You're probably thinking this is not possible (or maybe you know it's possible), but thanks to a device I finally found (from Bart) called PCIScan, I can collect a driver database and set up a PNP list (using, allowing most drivers to be auto-loaded (high, of course).

What do I need from the community? I need help collecting all the drivers that have been released. I could do it fairly fast, but having a thousand files names " doesn't help. If you would like to contribute, start digging up your old drivers, or downloading them online!

When downloading, please name files in the following format:

"Manufacturer" "Device1" "Device2"


"Adaptec ANA-6911 ANA-6922 ANA-6944 ANA-69940.exe"

If a driver has too many supported devices, copy and paste the supported devices into a text file and name the text and driver follow in the following way:

"Manufacturer" "Chipset"


"ATI mach64 Chips.exe"

When uploading, upload into the proper category. If the category does not exist, create a folder for it. All uploads go in the /uploads folder. Drivers I have collected are available in the / folder. It is suggested to compare yours to these to make sure there are no duplicates.

I wrote a DOS PCI auto detector for the OSBA portable OS challenge. Could it be any use for you?
