Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Thanks for @Flyingharuka (@bestmmk) for biding this in Yahoo! Auctions.
This PC-98 OEM build of Windows NT 3.5 is different with the MSDN edition to the extent of some drivers and included programs.

It contains a CD-ROM and 4 boot floppies in both 3.5-inch and 5-inch PC-98 1.23MB 2HD format.
No PC-98 emulators could emulate this properly right now; I'll wait for @Flyingharuka to install it on a real PC-9821Xa and post the screenshots here.

We only have 300dpi scans, so this might not make its way into BetaArchive FTP but it might be useful to others here.

The installer can't find any hard drives under that, no matter using IDE or SCSI hard disk images or WINNTFIX set to true or false.

It's because of poor IDE support from the build itself or np21/w having some buggy IDE emulation.
Edit: Use DISK.SYS and CDHD_F.sys from NT 3.51 PC-98.

I'll try installing it on my PC-9821 V166 in about a week.
Note to all PC-98 owners: Don't even bother installing NT-based OSes on a CF card.
You will never get past INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.
