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).

Hi everyone, am new to this forum and I would like to share Windows XP Starter Edition SP2 in 3 languages on BetaArchive. I am not sure if they are on the FTP server already (as I don't have FTP access) or they are rare/valuable enough to be accepted, so please tell me if it will be accepted or not.

Regards,
ComputerHunter

You can use the new database feature for searches: https://www.betaarchive.com/database/

Searching the database, we only have Starter SP3 English and Starter SP2 Spanish and that's it. Starter is generally a very uncommon version so your contribution would gladly be accepted.

To our upload server please, or if you upload them to a fileshare host and PM me the links. FTP details are on the FTP page (links at the top).

Thanks.

Now, a few more week passed, still can't upload in one go. Is it possible to upload it to Mega?

BTW, I don't think those starter editions are rare enough, also you need a key to install, without a key it won't let you pass. They are so bad that you can't even install it on 86Box, PCem, VirtualBox, VMware or Microsoft VPC, you can only install it on a physical machine with less than 512 MB RAM and specified CPU.

As far as I am concerned, Starter works fine in VMware with 256mb on my i7-4700MQ laptop @3.40 Ghz. What is the machine you are running this on? Technically speaking with the correct config in 86box, you should get something.

Just split the .rar into parts.

VirtualBox can fake the CPUID so if that's all that Starter checks it should be really easy if you take the CPUID string from a processor that Starter likes (i. e. Celeron/Duron/Sempron).

Also, there is no such thing as "minimum rareness". Anything that's not on the FTP yet will be accepted. Anything that's on the FTP, but in inferior quality (non-original/folder dump/no scans/etc.) can also be replaced with a better copy and that will be accepted as well.

I still can't upload using the ftp, and I decide to try Mega. How many percent of recovery record should I add to the RAR file?

Another question, do you guys have a Starter Edition English product key or know how to skip it during the installation process?

PM me a link when you're done and I'll download and compare with what we have. Only original releases will be uploaded to the FTP however. 5% recovery should be fine if you want to make sure your upload goes fine.

Remember, asking for abandonware license keys is strictly against the rules (so are posting them for anyone that feels adventurous).

Hi, that one is neutral wallpaper, I don't think multi wallpaper for Spanish edition exist.

Here is all Windows XP Starter Edition wallpapers I have:

If you want any of the wallpapers, just comment.
