Hello, I have a ISO. It's properties are:
OS: Microsoft Windows XP
Version: Professional
Service Pack: SP3
Architecture: x86
Language: German
Filename: de_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-80444.iso

I want the FTP access. Do you accept this ISO file? If you accept this I will upload it.
I have not a name

That look like an MSDN ISO and it will not be accepted. All MSDN downloads are not accepted. You need to dump something from an actual disc and scan that disc at 600+ DPI to get FTP access.

Does BetaArchive accept Pirated ISOs? I have some Windows builds, but pirated. I've downloaded from elsewhere.
Reason: I need Windows Server 2012 R2 Build 9431 English Full GUI ISO. But everywhere showed me RTM versions. I want beta version, not RTM or latest version. Also I couldn't find it on torrent.

You can only get FTP access for stuff that you physically own. Not to mention that with 99% certainty we already have the builds anyway.

OK, I understand. It's very hard or impossible. I will try to find alternative sites. Or I will just give up. Thank you. :(

Surely it's not that hard to find a disc in a thrift store or something for a buck or two...?

I thought, I will create my own operating system from zero for FTP access. If I customize Windows XP ISO files with nLite, Can BetaArchive accept that? For example: Adding SATA drivers to this ISO file I have. If not, I will give up anyways.

Very doubtful. Creating a useful operating system (with a team of one!) is a herculean task. We're also not interested in preserving community software; only commercial, or open source software that is sold commercially.

I certainly hope your slipstreamed Windows XP isn't your idea of a from-the-ground-up OS. We don't want it either.

Then I'm giving up. I don't have any build physically my one.

No. It has to be an original disc that you physically own.

I don't have any original software. Some of them are trial and some of them are pirated. :(

Guess it sucks to be you? I imagine it's not hard to earn a few euros and head on to eBay if you really want FTP access. If you can't muster that up, there are plenty of free resources out there like WinWorldPC.

Personally, I would prefer to donate a few bucks to get FTP access rather than buying some useless crappy old software that gets thrown out the second day. Donations won't even grant people FTP access so the only option would be to dig up old stuff from your garage and basement if you cannot afford anything. There are countries with almost no thrift stores so not an option for some people.

I basically dumped all my discs and floppies as folder dumps a few years ago as they were becoming less common. This pretty much ruined all the stuff I owned (including a full set of Adobe CS3 and Office 2007). For the floppies I still have, they are no longer original because over 90% of them were victims of the IHC signature. I guess most ordinary people do not have the knowledge of how to properly use, back up and preserve software back in the days so it is not that strange to have nothing to offer today.

The reason I hate buying something for 5 bucks off eBay is the fact that shipping costs ~25 bucks and it really doesn't worth it.

WinWorldPC doesn't have Windows XP or newer (excluding Windows Longhorn only). I need Windows Server 2012 R2 Build 9431 Full GUI English ISO file. How I can download from WinWorldPC? Give me other alternative.

You have already been given all the options you need. You'll either have to put some effort into it and get access (it is not difficult, and from what I read it seems you just don't want to put any effort in), or you will have to find your requested stuff elsewhere.

We deal with preservation here, and to get access to everything other members uploaded you have to provide a little piece of your own. It's that simple.

Once you find something that can be provided get in touch with me or post an offer in the proper section and we'll take a look at it.

Thank you.
