Looking for ISOs of OEM Recovery CDs

Post by The Distractor »

Well, I'm looking for ISOs of recovery CDs for abandoneware OSes (win95C & NT4 or below). I am very interested in these and how they work. If they are tailored to only work on that manufacturer's PCs I try to hack them (using reshack, exescope or disasm'ing) to work on any PC.
Can anyone help me?

At one time I collected those. I have a Windows 3.1 restore on floppies from Packard Bell, but I would need to run the OEM software recovery writer on it.
