How to run build win2k build 2072

Post by Daniel »

Ive downloaded Windows 2000 build 2072 for alpha pc from the server.
What I would like to know is, if there is any way to run it on a emulator (bochs).

you would have to compile boch yourself to use it, I know there are precompiled ones, but it might not suit your needs

Where can I find them

Or better: could someone upload a i386 version of build 2072?

even though I really don't understanf the current subject..

download Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 from Microsoft's website. It's freeware.
Then install the OS.

^Ubuntu 8. New installer. Why the heck didn't they do this years ago?

This doesnt work. This build isnt designed for the i386 architecture, it is made for the DEC Alpha arrchitecture.

He's talking about an Alpha (not alpha ) version ie the CPU architecture - it's not built for Intel machines, like the old Alpha/PowerPC/MIPS versions of NT 3 and 4

I'm under the impression that Qemu supports Alpha-arch-based OSes. I'm not sure, though... and never tried anything other than x86 on it.

There's no emulator out there that can run NT operating systems for RISC-based machines. It's possible to emulate a DEC Alpha machine (among others) using Simics, but the VM won't run NT, I've tried it.

edit: tpemail seems to have Windows 2000 Pro RC1, which is build 2072. Maybe you can ask her if she'll upload it, if it is x86.

ATM, I only know Qemu and gxemul which are able to start a little bit the installation process of Windows NT/MIPS. Files (drivers) are loaded from the cdrom, and then, the VM freezes.

For Windows NT/Alpha or Windows NT/PPC, I know no emulator capable of even starting the installation phase.

KenOath (of course) and tpemail maybe. Ask her.
