Interesting. I love the nt.bmp and the enterp.bmp. And respectively, the lanma256.bmp one.

No big surprise, as some of these wallpapers are in Windows 3.0. There still is a reference to NT 5.0 beta 1 from 1997. :O

boxes.bmpm, chess.bmp and paper.bmp were wallpapers shipped with NT 3.x (I know 3.51 had them, not sure about 3.5 and 3.1). Some client versions of Windows might also have had them.
party.bmp and ribbons.bmp are also wallpapers, since they're clearly designed to tile, but I don't think they shipped with any version of NT (although I'm sure I've seen something very similar to ribbons.bmp somewhere).

enterp.bmp was looks like it's also a wallpaper, but didn't ship, probably for copyright reasons.

lanma256.bmp and winnt256.ori are NT5/2000 logos formatted into the style of the NT4 logon wallpaper, so were likely intended for the same purpose.

std.bmp and nt.bmp look like they're placholder logo images, likely from early stages of development (std.bmp could well be from before the project was even named "Windows NT").

Actually, boxes.bmp, chess.bmp, paper.bmp, party.bmp and ribbons.bmp are bitmaps from Windows 3.0, along with weave.bmp. lanma256.bmp and winnt256.bmp are the start-up logos for Windows Server and Workstation. Here winnt256.bmp is from a beta.

Enterp.bmp evidently would attract royalties if it were distributed commercially, but i have seen the enterprise in a similar position zapping a windows logo, this to be found on the OS/2 Hobbes site. Of nt.bmp and std.bmp, these appear to be hand-crufted stuff.

Can clearly see where Microsoft was heading in std.bmp :D
