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).

I'm looking for the first release of MS-DOS 5.00, in april 1991.

There was a very common second release with date 1991.11.11. I already have this. The earlier release apparently had dates 1991.04.06.

Thanks.

Without digging too deep, I just checked on the genuine 5.0 upgrade
disks I own here & found the dates to be 9th april 91, any good to you.?
Or is it only the full version you're after...

I probably have the full version if I dug deep enough through the backups...

Thanks, might be short lived though, as soon as I make amends with 1
enemy, I gain 2 more the next day, without even trying...

Now as far as this Dos is concerned, After a bit of digging, I found the
full version of this, but again, dated 9th of april 1991, so i'm not sure
how reliable your source is for the date of 6th of april 1991..
The difference between the full & upgrade I have here is

:upgrade has:
37 files on D1
28 files on D2
52 files on D3

:Full has:
35 files on D1
31 files on D2
35 files on D3

All images are 720k... Big difference on Disk3...
I can pesonally vouch for the authenticity of the upgrade set as I
bought them new, still haven't used them yet...
You interested in these at all os2fan2..?
& did you want a scanned image of the genuine labels..?

EDIT:
I just found a DELL branded MS-Dos 5.00, but only disk 1 so far..
Opening the command.com with a hex editor shows it as
MS-Dos 5.00, yet all the file dates are 11th May 1992, that's a late one...
Actually, I found some support disks & all sorts of crap associated with
this set, buggered if I can find disk 2 & 3 though...

EDIT 2:
Just Found another MS-Dos 5.00 floppy, By Intertan,
But again, only Disk 1, it's file dates are 1st of Sep 1991..

& every set has a time of 5:00:00 AM

Eh, don't worry about them :P

Also, I would like it if you could supply scanned labels etc for this if possible...

Where do you want to go today?

I have an old Packard Bell OEM copy of MS-DOS 5.0, however, Disk 1 was damaged, so I only have Disk 2, however, I'll look at that disk today.
I also have a couple of old Leading Edge laptops with some files from MS-DOS 5.0 from June 1991. You might even find this version on eBay. I recently started looking for old OS's on eBay, now that I started my own OS Collection, and I found lot's of intresting DOS versions there, including some copies of DR-DOS and even IBM-DOS.

That's the one. upgrade vs full is not an issue. I was unsure of the date, but i do know that the bulk of DOS versions are 5.00.02, rather than 5.00.00

I imaged all the early versions I listed in my second post here, so you
have both the upgrade & full versions of this, dated 9th of april 1991,
plus the other odd early versions, plus the floppy label scans...

The megashares download link.

A mirror download of the same package.

I just checked my copy of MS-DOS 5.0 Disk 2 (Packard Bell OEM) and the files are dated May 30th, 1991. Is this version on the servers? If it isn't, I would like to upload it.

Edit: I checked your download and I didn't find this version in it. I'm going to upload it to Rapidshare soon.
