I've said this many times in other peoples posts in the past, & it seems to go
completely un noticed, so I'm forced to make a thread to get the message
accross to those of you who think you have this beta...
NT 3.1 build 388 exists on no servers that I have seen yet...
All the 388 builds within this community are in fact "partially corrupt" builds of 404...
& there are more than one level of corruption of it about, even though the size remains
the same, the one thing in common with all corrupt ISOs of it, is the fact that the
DEMO folder on the root of the ISOs are ALL corrupt, & none of the apps run directly
from the folder they reside in, Like the pic below shows...

Also the 388 & 404 builds here are identical to the byte, in size...

Also, if you take the time to check the files versions on the iso, you soon see that out
of 1,070 files in the I386 folder, only 41 of them are version 388, & none of them are
the kernel files, in fact the kernel files are 397, & there are 60+ build 397 files in it...
Image


I also know this because some time ago, I wrote my own setup inf files for ALL the
various early NT betas, in order to install them & take screens of them in VPC,
388 ended up showing it's file version as 404 in both the initialisation blue screen at the
start of the setup, & in system properties...

Also do note that the MIPS installation files are also corrupt.

- KenOath: Could you provide us the real Build 388? It would be great. ;)

He didn't really say that he had it, plus it's kinda rude to ask for something like an "unleaked"
beta without being offered. And also, it's great to see KenOath posting again!

I'll remove it from my server, I didn't do a precheck before uploading, something which I've been lacking of late, my apologies, Ken.
