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).

you asked for XP x64, version 2003

Read the rules and do some research!

Good luck torrenting the Intanium version, I doubt you will ever find it. I doubt anyone has a copy except for the exceptional members.

According to the Wikipedia page he linked to there was a 2003 version for Itanium too so presumably that is the one he is after (though I doubt he has an Itanium box to run it on); the versions were "XP 64-bit Edition" (Version 2002), "XP 64-bit Edition" (Version 2003, based on Server 2003), and "Windows XP Professional x64 Edition" (the "normal" XP x64 that we all have). An old MSDN subscription from one of those years would probably contain it.

The best thing you can get is Windows Server 2008 for Itanium-Based Systems as Windows Vista does not support Itanium processor.

Download the trial version here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... laylang=en

To bypass activation:
1. Stop the SL Notification Service and disable it from startup
2. Delete the following files from system32: SLLUA.exe, SLUI.exe and SLUINotify.dll
Note: The 30 countdown will continue but it will not prompt you to activate.

XDUDE that link is for eval. copy, not warez, it is a trial. And the rules are no posting links for warez. Such as FTP'S FIle sharing i.e. rapidshare. the last thing that Andy (Admin) needs is a damn phone call from microsoft asking for the forum to be shut down for having pirated links for Illegal copies of Windows. If you want full windows pirated downloads heres the link

Two reasons, although there are loads of reasons:

1) Microsoft is the biggest software developer in the world.

2) Image

Ooh, the biggest software developer in the world is out to get us!
As far as forums go, we are incredibly small, and Microsoft doesn't give a crap about a tiny little forum that shares and learns from its pre-release products.
As you said, they are the biggest software developer in the world, they have bigger things to worry about.

It's all about the profit margin. Small forums like these are actually somewhat helpful to MS as they build a fan base. Sure people complain and criticize a lot here but you'd be a fool to say that the community as a whole isn't pro-MS. Whether you like it or not Windows still remains the largest desktop platform around and despite it's faults it's a really good platform with tons of software.

IA-64 is a DIFFERENT architecture than x86-64.

And Microsoft calls IA-64 64-bit, but calls the x86-64 x64.

I have IA-64. Its not compatible with x64(x86-64)

And its not warez, as long as there's no key.

Ummm i think i also have the standard one... (i dunno, i got it for free - just sent an e-mail to one of ITEvangelists saying that i would like to be in some program, can't remember the name now, lol).
I think it's IA-64 version as the 64-86 have x64 in the ISO name. You may want to check your Windows XP section at TechNet again, but under x64 section... i think it has been thrown there by mistake...

And i feel very sorry about uploading because with my GPRS internet connection i can't even download anything bigger than 5-10MB :(

Most importantly go on Microsoft's site; there is no information for it and only a single patch made in 2003 for the beta...

**********************************************************************

Release Notes for Setup
Microsoft Windows XP 64-Bit Edition

**********************************************************************

(c) 2001 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

When installing a new operating system, you need to make several
choices. The Windows XP Setup Wizard, combined with this document,
will guide you through your selections and show how to connect your
computer to a network.

IMPORTANT: Before you begin, read the file Read1st.txt on the
Windows XP 64-Bit Edition CD. This file contains late-breaking
information that was unavailable at the time of publication,
including preinstallation notes vital to the success of your
installation.

======================================================================
CONTENTS
======================================================================

1.0 Before You Begin
1.1 Hardware Requirements
1.2 Checking Hardware and Software Compatibility
1.3 Obtaining Network Information
1.4 Disk Partitioning Requirements for Itanium-based
Workstations
2.0 Installing Windows XP 64-Bit Edition
2.1 Installing for the First Time
2.2 Installing an Updated Version
2.3 Collecting User and Computer Information
2.4 Providing Networking Information
2.4.1 Joining a Workgroup
2.4.2 Joining a Domain
2.5 Creating a User Account
3.0 Advanced Setup Options
3.1 File Systems
3.1.1 NTFS
3.1.2 FAT and FAT32
3.2 Disk Partitions
3.3 Modifying the EFI Boot Manager

======================================================================
1.0 Before You Begin
======================================================================

Before you install Windows XP 64-Bit Edition, read this section
to ensure that your equipment meets the minimum requirements and that
you have the information you will need during Setup.

1.1 Hardware Requirements
======================================================================

Before you install Windows XP, make sure your computer meets the
following minimum hardware requirements:

* 733 megahertz (MHz) Intel Itanium-based microprocessor

* 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM (minimum)

* 6 gigabytes (GB) of free hard disk space (minimum) for Setup

* VGA monitor or better

* Keyboard

* Mouse or compatible pointing device

* CD-ROM drive

For network installation:

* Windows XP-compatible network adapter card and related cable

* Access to the network share that contains the Setup files

1.2 Checking Hardware and Software Compatibility
======================================================================

Windows XP Setup automatically checks your hardware and software
and reports any potential conflicts. To ensure a successful
installation, however, you should determine whether your computer
hardware is compatible with Windows XP 64-Bit Edition before you
start Setup. This is particularly important if you are using a
high-end video card for rendering three-dimensional graphics, or
if you are using computer peripherals other than the minimum hardware
requirements mentioned in the previous section.

You can view the Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) at the Microsoft
Web site:

http://www.microsoft.com/hcl

IMPORTANT: Windows XP 64-Bit Edition supports only those
devices listed in the HCL. If your hardware isn't in this
list, contact the hardware manufacturer and ask if there's
a Windows XP 64-Bit Edition driver for the component.

During Setup, you can use Dynamic Update to ensure that you are
getting the most up-to-date Setup files for Windows XP 64-Bit Edition.

1.3 Obtaining Network Information
======================================================================

The first step is to decide whether your computer is joining a domain
or a workgroup. If you don't know which option to choose or if your
computer won't be connected to a network, select the workgroup option.
(You can join a domain after you install Windows XP.)

If your computer is currently connected to a network, request
the following information from your network administrator before you
begin the setup process:

* Name of your computer

* Name of the workgroup or domain

* TCP/IP address (if your network does not have a Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server)

To connect to a network during Setup, you must have the correct
hardware installed on your computer and it must be connected by
a network cable.

1.4 Disk Partitioning Requirements for Itanium-based Workstations
======================================================================

Itanium-based computers have specific partitioning requirements. Two
partitions are created automatically when you install Windows XP
for the first time on your computer.

* The first partition is a FAT partition of about 100 megabytes (MB).
Called the EFI System Partition, this partition is used to store
programs and information files that the Extensible Firmware
Interface (EFI) uses to automatically start Windows XP.

* The Microsoft Reserved (MSR) partition is a 32 MB partition that
allows the operating system to perform operations that require
dedicated disk space, such as changing a disk from basic to
dynamic.

The EFI system partition is the first partition on your hard disk
and the MSR partition is the second partition. If you are using
multiple hard disks, the MSR partition is the first partition
on your second hard disk and all subsequent hard disks. Only one
EFI system partition is necessary for a computer, and it must be on
your boot drive.

For information about EFI utilities, see the documentation supplied
by your computer vendor.

IMPORTANT: The recommended minimum partition size for
installing Windows XP 64-Bit Edition is 6 GB.

======================================================================
2.0 Installing Windows XP 64-Bit Edition
======================================================================

Setup for Windows XP 64-Bit Edition is divided into two phases. The
first phase is text-mode Setup. During this phase, Setup copies files
to the computer, checks your hardware, and configures your
installation. You can also choose to create multiple partitions during
this phase. Your computer will restart at the end of this phase.

The second phase is GUI-mode Setup. During this phase, Setup gathers
information such as regional settings, user name and password, and
network information. Your computer restarts again when Setup is
complete.

2.1 Installing for the First Time
======================================================================

Setup creates the EFI system partition and the MSR partition
automatically. It is recommended that you create a single data
partition of no less than 6 GB for installing the operating system.

>> To install Windows XP on a clean machine:

1. Ensure that the hardware for your Itanium-based computer is
set up properly and that everything is attached as it should be.

2. Turn on your computer.

3. Insert the Windows XP 64-Bit Edition CD into the CD-ROM
drive.

4. When prompted in the EFI Boot Manager, boot to the CD-ROM drive.

When you see "Press any key to boot from CD-ROM...", press a key
and Windows XP text-mode Setup begins.

If the CD does not start automatically, boot to the EFI shell,
select the CD-ROM drive, and type:

setupldr

and then press ENTER.

Note: Setup can create the EFI system partition and the MSR
partition automatically. If you want, you can choose to create
the EFI system partition yourself, but it is recommended that
you let Setup create this partition.

5. When prompted to install Windows, determine the size of
your data partition. The recommended minimum size for
installing Windows XP 64-Bit Edition is 6 GB.

6. Follow the directions that appear. Once GUI-mode setup is
complete, the computer restarts automatically.

2.2 Installing an Updated Version
======================================================================

Installing a newer version of Windows XP 64-Bit Edition over a
previous version is simple. Setup detects and installs the appropriate
drivers, or it creates a report on devices that could not be upgraded,
so that you can be sure your hardware and software are compatible with
Windows XP 64-Bit Edition.

>> To update from the CD:

1. Turn on your computer, and start Windows XP 64-Bit Edition.

2. Insert the Windows XP 64-bit Edition update CD into your CD-ROM
drive.

If Windows automatically detects the CD, the Windows XP CD
dialog box appears. Click Install Windows to start your upgrade.

Otherwise, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following
command, replacing "d", if necessary, with the letter assigned
to your CD-ROM drive:

d:\ia64\winnt32.exe

3. Press ENTER.

4. Select Upgrade, and then click Next.

5. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

2.3 Collecting User and Computer Information
======================================================================

Windows XP Setup helps you gather information about you and
your computer. Although much of this installation process is
automatic, you might need to provide information or select settings on
the following pages, depending on the configuration of your computer:

* Licensing Agreement. If you agree with the terms and want to
continue the setup process, select the option labeled "I accept
this agreement."

* Select Special Options. Customize the Windows XP installation,
language, and accessibility settings for new installations. You
can set up Windows XP to use multiple languages and regional
settings.

* Regional Settings. Change the system and user locale settings for
different regions and languages.

* Personalize Your Software. Type the full name of the person to
whom this copy of Windows XP is licensed and, optionally, the
organization.

* Computer Name and Administrative Password. Type a unique computer
name that differs from other computer, workgroup, or domain
names on your network. Windows XP Setup suggests a computer name,
but you can change the name.

Setup automatically creates an Administrator account during
installation. When you use this account, you have full rights
over the computer's settings and can create user accounts on the
computer. Logging on as an Administrator after you install
Windows XP gives you administrative privileges that you need in
order to log on and manage your computer. Specify a password for
the Administrator account. For security reasons, you should
always assign a password to the Administrator account. Take care
to remember and protect your password.

* Date and Time Settings. Verify the date and time for your region,
select the appropriate time zone, and then select whether you
want Windows XP to automatically adjust for daylight saving time.

* Networking Settings. Unless you are an advanced user, select
Typical settings for your network configuration. To manually
configure network clients, services, and protocols, select
Custom settings.

* Workgroup or Computer Domain. During the setup process, you must
join either a workgroup or a domain. For details on both of these
options, see "Providing Networking Information" in section 2.5
of this document.

* Network Identification Wizard. If your computer is connected to a
network, this wizard prompts you to identify the users who will
be using your computer. Each person with an account on the
computer can be assigned different levels of access.

2.4 Providing Networking Information
======================================================================

During or after the setup process, you need to join either a workgroup
or a domain. If you will not be working on a network, select the
option to join a workgroup.

2.4.1 Joining a Workgroup
----------------------------------------------------------------------

A workgroup is one or more computers with the same workgroup name (for
example, a peer-to-peer network). Any user can join a workgroup by
simply typing the workgroup name--you don't need special permissions
to join a workgroup. You must provide an existing or new workgroup
name, or you can use the workgroup name that Windows XP Setup
suggests.

2.4.2 Joining a Domain
----------------------------------------------------------------------

A computer account identifies your computer to the domain, while the
user account identifies you to your computer.

A domain is a collection of computers defined by a network
administrator. Unlike joining a workgroup, which you can do yourself,
joining a domain requires permission from the network administrator.

To join a domain during the setup process, you must already have an
existing computer account in the domain you want to join, or have the
rights to create one. You are prompted to type a new computer account
name. Before you run Windows XP Setup, ask your network administrator
to create a computer account. Or, if you have the appropriate
privileges, you can create the account during the setup process and
join the domain. To join a domain, you need to provide your user name
and password.

Note: If you have difficulty joining a domain during the setup
process, join a workgroup instead, and then join the domain
after you finish installing Windows XP.

2.5 Creating a User Account
======================================================================

Your user account identifies your user name and password, the groups
you are a member of, which network resources you have access to, and
your personal files and settings. Each person who regularly uses the
computer should have a user account. The user account is identified by
a user name and a password, both of which the user types when logging
on to the computer. You can create individual user accounts after
logging on to the computer by using an account with Administrator

3.0 Advanced Setup Options
======================================================================

This section provides more detailed information and can help you make
decisions about how you install Windows XP.

3.1 File Systems
======================================================================

Before you install Windows XP 64-Bit Edition, you should decide which
file system you will use. A file system is the method by which
information is stored on a hard disk.

Windows XP supports the NTFS file system or one of the file
allocation table file systems (FAT or FAT32). To set up a dual-boot
configuration, you should select one file system for all your
partitions: FAT32 or NTFS.

NOTE: The 102 MB EFI system partition will automatically use the
FAT file system. You should not change this, because using
another file system will cause problems.

3.1.1 NTFS
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The NTFS file system is the recommended file system for use with
Windows XP. It has all of the basic capabilities of FAT, and it
provides the following advantages over the FAT and FAT32 file
systems:

* Better file security
* Better disk compression
* Support for large hard disks, up to 2 terabytes (TB). (The
maximum drive size for NTFS is much greater than for drives
formatted as FAT, and as drive size increases, performance
with NTFS doesn't degrade as it does with FAT.)

3.1.2 FAT and FAT32
----------------------------------------------------------------------

FAT32 is an enhanced version of the FAT file system that can be used
on drives ranging from 512 MB to 32 GB. FAT and FAT32 offer
compatibility with operating systems other than Windows XP.

3.2 Disk Partitions
======================================================================

Disk partitioning is a way of dividing your hard disk so that each
section functions as a separate unit. You can create a partition to
provide a place to back up data, or to dual-boot with another
operating system. When you create partitions on a disk, you divide
the disk into one or more areas that can be formatted for use by
a file system, such as FAT32 or NTFS.

During text-mode Setup, you can create and delete partitions. Follow
these guidelines for partitioning:

* A minimum of 6 GB is recommended for installing Windows XP
64-Bit Edition. A partition of this size provides flexibility
for adding future updates, operating system tools, or other
files.

* During Setup, you should create and size only the partition on
which you want to install Windows XP. After Windows XP is
installed, you can use Disk Management to further partition the
unallocated space.

For more information about Disk Management, open Help and Support
Center from the Start menu in Windows XP Help.

3.3 Modifying the EFI Boot Manager
======================================================================

The EFI Boot Manager enables you to boot to the shell, to Windows XP
or another operating system, or to the CD-ROM drive. Your computer
will attempt to boot to each of the listed options, starting with the
first option, until it finds a valid bootable entry. You can change
the order of items on the boot menu. For example, if you want to boot
to the shell first, you can make Shell the first item on your boot
menu. If you install more than one operating system, you can choose
which is listed first.

You can also make other changes to the Boot Manager menu, such as
renaming a boot option or exporting the boot options to a floppy disk.

>> To make changes to your boot options:

1. Boot to the EFI shell.

2. Switch to the hard disk. Your hard disk is normally located at
fs0 or fs1. For example, type

fs0:

and then press ENTER.

3. Change to the Msutil folder. Type

cd msutil

and then press ENTER.
If there is no Msutil folder, you are not in the correct place.

Try a different fs option.

4. Use the nvrboot.efi program to modify EFI Boot Manager options.
To start it, type

nvrboot

and then press ENTER.

5. Make the changes to your boot options. For example, to rename
a boot option, type M to Modify, and then follow the directions
that appear on your screen. To move a boot option to the top
of the boot option menu, use the Push command. To save a copy
of your boot options to a floppy disk, use the Export command.

I have the IA64 version. I got it from MSDN way back when. I can certainly upload it, but it will take some time. Just have Andy give me the ok.


I think Andy will be fines as long as no key is provided - Windows XP Starter, and Pro is on there, (without a key, of course) so, I don't think he'll mind.

EDIT:

Oh yea - can you post a untouched? Thanks!
