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 don't know if this helps, but did you try to install it on MS Virtual Server 2005?

What kind of VM?

Is this some strange limit of NTFS 1.1. How large is the virtual disk you are trying to make? Have you tried installing the OS on a 1 gig partition?

You may need to create a smaller partition for Windows NT 4, and install it in the first 4G.

I remember about replacing some files in the install, that will allow you to install it on a diskette of any size. (atapi.sys thing).

NTFS 1.0 has a restriction of 4GB
FAT16 has a restriction of 2GB
FAT32 is allowed on NT SP4+ and it could be any size. But Size greater than 32GB is slow. (I'm not sure about this one, this option is allowed on WIndows 98/Me since it doesn't support NTFS)
