Windows 2000 builds for DEC Alpha

Post by empireum »

Hello,

as the title says, I am looking for these, most preferable the RC2, Build 2128. On the AbyssUnderground server, there's a 448MB file apparently containing Win2K Build 2072 for Alpha, but when I downloaded it and tried to open it, it gave me an error. Is this file corrupt?

Yep, that can be. It is not named "finished" or something like that. I'll have to wait, then. And it's an Advanced Server build, by the way.

It still should be bigger that that thougth. Server ones are generally larger with all the extra active directry tools and stuff.

Yep, that's what I thought as well...
But, on the other hand, look at the file sizes for Windows 2000 RC2 x86 ISOs:
Professional: 398MB
Server: 450MB
The Servers are larger than the Professional, but the file size could be about right...
So the file could be genuine,...

Mine is ~410MB, but it's a German version. (And an x86 one as well. ).
