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).

In BetaArchive FTP has only Windows NT 4.0 Server betas build 1130, 1234, and 1314. In old days, the FTP has the Windows NT 4.0 Workstation betas build 1234 and 1314.

if it was on the old FTP it will eventually make it's way to the new ftp, it just needs to be repacked by one of the people who maintain the FTP.

There has been quite a few NT4 releases on the old BA archive yes, but sadly most has been mistagged or misnamed. The ones you see on the current BA FTP are the ones that existed on the old BA archive. We have a few server betas but that's all.

If there existed any build 1234 or 1314 Workstation builds then they must have been some kind of custom hacks or they were never uploaded to BA in the first place. Please correct me on this if I am wrong :).

I have the archives of these from the old BA FTP.

Microsoft Windows NT 4 BETA Build 1130.rar 35mb
Microsoft Windows NT 4 BETA Build 1234.rar 122mb
Microsoft Windows NT 4 BETA Build 1314.rar 172mb


They are all server builds and aren't iso images. They're the contents of the iso image packed in a rar file.

Yes, we have all these on BA already and if I am not mistaken I (or someone else, can't remember) have remade them into ISO with a bootable sector. But as you say they are all server builds.

I only got "beta 1" and "beta 2" back in the day...

I remember that once I had installed beta 1, beta 2 had arrived... And naturally when I had time to get #2 installed it went retail...

Maybe it's me, but the race for beta to release of NT 4.0 was VERY rushed.. Then again I know the NT team really wanted to show up the 95 people... being a year late to the party.

Can you upload to mediafire or megaupload?

Sadly, like an idiot I gave them away to some college friends once I got the 'real thing'...

He wanted to track changes from 3.51 into 4.0 ...

Then there was the whole 4.0 vs 4.0 sp1 debacle on SMP machines...

For us users in the corporate world it was a rather 'dark' time.. people even were going from 3.51 to 95 because of the UI, although those of us in IT were frantically loading that user interface beta (newshell) everywhere to keep people from regressing to 95..
