Hello All.

I have sad news :(
The Microsoft Collection Book doesn't exist anymore.
I won't go into details, but just that Microsoft sended me a C&D Letter.

So for now the future is uncertain if I will re-open it in another name, or remains closed.

We were proud to serve the Beta Community with for over 5 years.
But it had to end someday, I would have hoped that it didn't came this soon.

Thanks for visiting and hoped you had liked the site.

Thanks.
Rob Jansen
Former Owner of the Microsoft Collection Book.


PS.
I will not answer any questions about this or PM's (they will get deleted), you just have to do it with this, or PM's (they will get deleted).

Something like that.

Now we need a discussion about the funsion maybe or not and somebody has to host the website.

And at the website that it can be accessed from another computer to edit the webpages, limited to a few people who can edit it from another computer.

Until it can begin i will keep the Windows Collection Book up to date here.

And you can access it at the upload account, andy hasen't moved it yet.
Now you can find the NT 3.51 Fix Disk for installing NT 3.51 in VPC 2007 there too.


To Everyone:
Post here if you have information what has to get in the Book.
Or you can just PM me.

i could host it at my server, www.history.winusers.de :)

edit, neptune "no serial needed" isnt right too, theres the unpatched version with timebomb, got it somewhere, the serial is XFD2W-W7VH8-MVC47-KY7DQ-P8Y4J.


EDIT: SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD CHANGE!

add win 1.00, it was there, well get it soon i hope :P

add windows 3.0MME and Win 3.0a. you dont have to enter win.com /r, win is enough.

add nashville Installation Issue, youll get a error "A: not accesable".

I have added these selections but i have not change the 3.0 one.

Because when just use WIN on the command prompt causes windows to crash, the Explorer does not load. Thats the /r (The Real Modus) which loads.

About the 1.0, i have asked my teacher but i have to ask it again if he has it.
Will check the cga.lgo file when he turns the files up.

Edit:
Nice site you can host it but one change to the site (only the main page) Maybe an english version (together with the German one) on the main page for linking to this portion.
(I am not so good in German, even when i live in the Netherlands)

Looks nice. Why not put the add form in an invisible table, to make it look better? Also, if you don't use a database, how do you store your data? Do you allow data dumps for backup and/or processing?

I think all of the files are placed in a folder wich are writed in php.
I think that the installation instruction input box must be like this forum input box when you type a response.

But looks great.

Sometimes i forget the enter the BIOS and set the date and get this:
Image

But this is what is said the book:
Georgia 2394 15/10/1999 KEY

Maybe i can add a section about expiration date on the side it could come in handy.

Please post about it what you think, then i only need to get the expiration dates.

EDIT:
Just added this to the book:
This will hold the time given in the BIOS, otherwise it resyncs with the HOST pc.
When this is used and the Virtual Machines is turned off, the date AND time does not change.
Example:
Installed on 15/10/1999 10:45, when booted next day this the time and date: 15/10/1999 10:45/10:46

This is tested! Comes in very handy when using betas.


Have installed all builds mentioned in the book and the total installed size is now: 20,4 GB stil have 436GB free for installing all betas. :P 8)
