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).

The first Windows evaluation/trial download I remember seeing was XP x64. Since then, there's been evaluation versions of most/every Windows in Microsoft's website.
Microsoft also offered evaluations in discs, either on request or via their subscriptions (Technet, etc).

Was there ever evaluation versions of Me/9x/NT, or earlier? (not beta/RC)
If so, were they only available in disc/floppy format?

If they exist, I'm interested in both pictures of these discs/disks as well as proper dumps.

I tried searching in the forums as well as FTP DB, but could only find 2000/XP eval.
Also, lots of Technet Eval discs, but not sure of their contents.

I would say evaluations started on Windows 2000 and went up from there. As for what its available in it is only available in disk format.
