[OFFER] Windows Memphis Build 1500 (and others)

Post by Marco0551 »

I have Windows Memphis Build 1500.

This beta comes from a warez CD from the 90s and the beta is not the original ISO but I used the files from the warez CD to create an ISO and I could get it to work in VMware Workstation 9.0 but it only boots in Safe Mode, I didn't really try installing this on anything else yet.

Screenshots:

Build verified, topic approved.

Well, seems this one is legit, dates seems to match, so does certain components within this beta (IE versions etc). It's also been installed and working properly. Congrats!

Thanks to Battler for testing out and verifying the build. It will be released to the public shortly.

Is it possible to get a dump of this build in its original form (or if possible, the whole CD)? I prefer that, so if you make one, I would appreciate it very much.
I'm probably asking for too much, but thanks anyway, for providing this build with us.

Very interesting! Thank you :)
Windows Defender for great justice! Bugs are an international trading company. I need to defeat the anti-debugging and obfuscation methods. It wasn't for Intel's absurd ability to load in ie6. Why even waste time with people in an envelope?

I am happy to know I had something real to contribute, unfortunately I can't upload the CD because I think it's against the rules, this comes from "CrazyBytes 16 - CD4".

- Marco0551: If your CD only contains software that's at least 10 years old and no longer supported, then it's not against the rules to upload it.

Yeah, that's true. This CD must be at least 10 years old, which means the software is contained on it is outdated, and companies wouldn't care about it.
You can use a RAW dumping guide in my signature or use IMGBurn to dump the CD.

You people seems to forget something cruical... this is a warez CD, not a commercial product disc, so those rules are not directly applicable in this case. And the nature of warez CDs is that they contain serials, cracks and what else that we absolutely do not allow here. So requesting this warez CD will carry a warning if continued. And no, it will not be allowed to be linked here either. If Marco0551 permits it I can take a look at the contents and see if there's anything else there we can use, but the disc as-is will not be distributed through BA in any way.

I found these as listed on the CD menu:
  • Memphis 1538 -- file version of setup.exe: 4.10.0.1538
  • Memphis 1650.3 -- file version of setup.exe: 4.10.0.1650
  • Memphis 1666 -- file version of setup.exe: 4.10.0.1666
  • Memphis 1687 -- file version of setup.exe: 4.10.0.1687
  • Memphis 1900 -- file version of setup.exe: 4.10.0.1900
I still want to look at some other CD's so perhaps I can find more.

Edit:
This is everything but I will be looking for other betas which are not Windows later this week.

In my point of view, get files from a Warez CD and then re-package them as a Memphis CD should be allowed...... Files are more than 10 years old and Memphis Betas are sure abandonwares.......

Um, of course we "repackage" them since we extract the Memphis stuff and put it in its own ISO since we lack the original one. But the warez CDs themselves with all the other content is off limits on BA. I will take out whatever other betas that might be on there and put it on BA, but that's all I will do.

If you don't mind me asking, where are you obtaining these warez CDs?
It's called a hustle, sweetheart.

My father used to buy these CDs when I was still a child, many of them are unreadable due to scratches but I created ISOs with the CDs which are still readable without errors.

I knew you'd be in here! :P

And of course, our other "Windows 9x-expert", Battler, was also here obviously, because he was the one who verified the first listed build (Build 1500) in the first place.

Yep. ;)

And an examination of the Release Notes included in 1500 reveals that supposedly the Debug Symbols for Memphis will be released in the next build... :mrgreen:

Oh please be out there somewhere, and please be the FULL ISO of the disc... *hehe*

To speed up the verification and let you members take part of these oldies I've decided to make these available to you before the "official" release. I have put each release into its own ISO file (yes, the ISO header has the wrong date, but these are not original ISO files anyway) and then packed them up according to BA standards. You can all find these in the Help folder on the FTP:

\[Help]\Release 11 - Memphis Special

Please, do let me know in a PM or this thread if these releases are good, and if they are packed up properly. Don't just grab them and chuck them into your collections before letting me know if they are proper, they won't reach the main collection until they are properly verified, and I will not keep them in the Help folder for long.

Enjoy!

Do not double post....

And what do you mean? Those folders are not uncommon for a Win9x ISO... If you look at the Windows 98 RTM disc you will find the same folders, Channels, Content, OLS, Tour..

Thanks! I hope to be able to experiment with them ASAP, at the moment I'm tied up in another experiment with the 1500 build. *hehe*

Thanks, I will try it soon and check all the builds verified or not.

Experiment wave:
1st wave, install all builds, clean install, and verify a build.
2nd wave, install all builds, upgrade from Windows 3.1.
Online periodically.
