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 really need Windows XP Starter because my friend's old PC is made for 98SE or 2000 and XP Starter will be perfect for him. If anyone has it, please upload.

Use Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs or a stripped-down installation of XP - that way you will get a lightweight but full XP-based OS, Starter is a very badly crippled OS (you can't run more than 3 applications at once, I think it has a maximum resolution of 800x600 or something, and I've never been able to fine it anywhere online anyway whereas Fundamentals or normal XP are very common). FLP or standard XP will be ok with 64 MB of memory and fine with 128, and anyway memory is cheap nowadays :)

As stated above, nobody has found it anywhere online yet so you will h ave a hard job finding it unless someone has it and is willing to upload it.

I would too like this to experiment with, however it has never been leaked, to my knowledge.

I have starter edition somewhere around here. Will it matter that it is in Brazilian Portuguese? I don't think it had an English release.

OMG
If you find an English release that would rule otherwise I can use nLite or something to integrate an English MUI into it.

No it cant.

MUI packs are for Professional's only, XP Starter Edition is based on XP HOME EDITION.

No I have not started, but I will upload this ISO, no key though. I am not sure if other XP keys like Home Edition keys will work, but I just used the one on my Starter Edition papers.

*UPLOADED* Waiting for Andy to transfer file.

Not likely, this is an oem, the key is what determines the operating system installed.
If you use an oem home key, it'll install as a home build.
Similar to using an oem pro key on media center, it'll install as pro, not mce.

Back to the author's post... Consider using a hacked up version called "Windows XPL"... They did the hacking up for you...

How big is it?

And i have my own key for starter (found it after searching for months on the internet, and no sharing those key's is warez, try searching your self).

And XP Starter is a collector's item, i only wish that tweakNt could convert Home Edition to starter.

Please upload it. I'll post a cracked version if I'm allowed to on the server after I can get it. To make my self clearer, I'll take the ISO and post an unattended one.

OMG Can't wait! I'll get Starter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EDIT:
Oh yeah guys here is how to get the serial completely legally without download or warez. This is a Microsoft Forgotten Serial Way and please don't get me in trouble for this Admins.
Go to I386 and open winnt.sif in Notepad. I'm telling nothing more!

Calm down please. If he uploaded it, the file might not be moved to the download account yet. Just wait a bit and you can get your file.

Sorry. I thought that when you upload it on the FTP, it automatically goes on the FTP.

Go to I386 and open winnt.sif in Notepad. I'm telling nothing more!

If the I386 folder has a winnt.sif in it, & the product key is in the winnt.sif.
Then extracting a key for the installation is not nesessary.
The winnt.sif is used by the setup routine, any information in the winnt.sif will be used by the setup,
including the product key if in the winnt.sif.

Does it require activation?

If it does, I know how to stop it, if you have a VLK. just change the key to the VLK key! Presto! done!

Uh, you don't get it.

This is not XP Home or Professional, it based on XP Home, but it doesn't work that way.
This version can't be cracked (i've tried) then it say's that the catalogs are wrong and end-up being a blue-screen.

And this version is similar to the Vista Starter, wich runs only 3 programs at one, so it's just an collectable item and small test platform.

And this is a bump over 30 days, just saying.
And that kind of talking is warez because it's a final product.
