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).

Does anyone have any S3 Trio 32/64 drivers for NT 3.1?

The standard drivers with NT 3.1 give an failure to start VGA and boots into the 16 colour and 640x480 resolution.


So does anybody has those drivers for the early NT's (3.1/3.5 possibly)?



It is for Microsoft Virtual PC.

S3 Trio drivers are integrated in Windows NT 3.5. Use the 3.1 drivers here, then test with NT 3.1:

http://files.oldos.org/files/driverboot ... cvideo.ima or follow the other users.

Use Connectix Virtual PC 4.1 to run all versions of NT 3.x. I've tested the original release of NT 3.5 and NT 3.51 SP5 (no CD drivers), works, no errors. Not yet tested NT 3.1. Connectix VPC v4.1 can be downloaded in Daniel's HTTP server Area 13. Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 have some problems running NT 3.x, may crash after restart. Just them, all of Virtual PC releases have all S3 Trio drivers in Windows NT 3.5x, NT 4.x, 2000, XP, and 9x. It cannot runs Windows Vista.

I am sure that you haven't read my post yet about that Windows NT 3.1 works perfect in VPC 2007 SP1 when used on a single core machine.

But will try these drivers.

EDIT:
I get an error that this OEMSETUP.INF is not valid for this Operating System.

Try VBEMP from bearwindows. Plus Windows NT uses a totally different language for its infs and the driver format is wrong.

Nope, only registery corruption when using those drivers.

Get me a copy of the OEMSETUP.INF and I can edit it for you.
