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).

From now on I will be renaming any badly named titles (frankly, a lot of you are awful at making proper titles, read the rules and guidelines people!) so it will be clearer at what's being offered or requested. This however is not an excuse for you to make lazy titles, if I notice that certain members are making too many bad titles I will simply delete the topics. So if you want your request or offer to stay then be sure to label them properly.

And remember people, before requesting releases be sure to check the FTP first, a lot of requests are done even with the files existing on the FTP.

Edit: I will not be locking down requests and offers since I realized that there may be situations where someone might have a question, or want to re-request it (outdated link etc) without opening up a new topic.

It's really hard work :( I don't know why people doesn't think about proper topic title before creating it.

Not that it makes much difference to me if titles are changed or not. I read threads anyway.

It does for a lot of people since it's easier to read what's being offered or requested.

Exactly. If I'm looking for something specific, it's easier to find it because I don't have to check every topic named "Windows Me" for example, but only the ones saying [OFFER].

I have re-named a large portion of the \(Abandonware) Operating Systems\PC section. All english releases have been given an [English] tag (and if there are separate US and UK releases then these are given [English-UK] and [English-US]) and I have also moved around the OEM tags so all releases are sorted by language first.

The tag order the files are sorted in (filename is an example):

Code:
Microsoft MS-DOS 2.11 (2.11.00) (1984-11-09) [English] (Update) [Tandy OEM] (5¼) [Tandy 1000].rar


Title > (Internal version) > (Date) > [Language] > (Update) > [OEM (OEM version)] > (Media format/size) > [Target machine or platform] > additional info

Any of these may be optional, if the info doesn't exist the tag will be omitted.

  • (Update) may be any variant, such as (Update), (Step-Up), (Upgrade), (Demo) etc that indicating a different version from the full retail.
  • [OEM] may be any of the following: [OEM], [OEM (OEM version)], [MSDN], [Select], [TechNet] or any variant of these indicating the manufacturer or release source.
  • (Media format/size) may or may not include media size. (3½) or (3½-1440kb) if needed.
  • additional info may consist of [Incomplete], (alt) or anything to indicate a release with a special status.

I will try to rename the files in the other sections in the same fashion, but I will make exceptions when needed to make it easier browsing and finding the files.

May you please rename windows server 2003 .net server build 3790.1232 to a windows longhorn related title because it can be a bit confusing when someone tries to look for windows longhorn 3790 not windows server 2003 build 3790 or you can ask the uploader to rename the title.

But then I will have to do that with all the builds then, i.e:

Code:
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (''.NET Server'' 5.2.3790.1069) (x64 Professional beta chk)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (''.NET Server'' 5.2.3790.1069) (x64 Professional beta)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (''.NET Server'' 5.2.3790.1232) (Professional beta)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (''.NET Server'' 5.2.3790.1289) (x64 Ent. Server beta)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (''.NET Server'' 5.2.3790.1421) (x64 Ent. Server beta)


to

Code:
Microsoft Windows Vista (''Longhorn'' 5.2.3790.1069) (x64 beta chk)
Microsoft Windows Vista (''Longhorn'' 5.2.3790.1069) (x64 beta)
Microsoft Windows Vista (''Longhorn'' 5.2.3790.1232) (beta)
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (''Longhorn Server'' 5.2.3790.1289) (x64 Ent. Server beta)
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (''Longhorn Server'' 5.2.3790.1421) (x64 Ent. Server beta)


Right?

I'd keep it the current label. Just maybe add a label that the build is related to the Longhorn project.

Is Server 2003 3790.1069 windows longhorn 3790 x64 edition.

It's obviously not. 3790.1069 was compiled on September 5, 2003, 3790.1232 was compiled on August 19, 2004 after the Longhorn reset. 4093 was compiled on the same day. Also, the license agreement of 3790.1232 says Longhorn, 3790.1069's license agreement says Windows Server 2003. It is AMD64 however.

It is a full server 2003 but yes it was x64 because if you look at the winver banner in windows server 2003 3790.1069 it says "Windows .NET Server 2003" with "amd 64" painted in to the banner.

I just edited my post to fix that error.
