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).

Windows NT 3.1 Workstation in 3.5'' Disks is already available on the FTP, but it was badly dumped.
Therefore, we need a redump of it!

If it's because they refuse to install in VMware then it is not a result of a bad dump as much as it is running it on a non-supported CPU. Only other problem I can think of is a corrupted download which in that case try downloading them again.

You have to replace a couple of files in the setup... if you need assistance I have a YouTube vid on it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHfGOaIqRlc

They were dumped without write-protection.

So they have IHC headers? It shouldn't be difficult to reconstruct the correct OEM ID's then.

No, they have no IHC headers.
Their structures may be bad.

Then don't go around making topics where you claim it's badly dumped... 8-)

Yeah. I could see him being curious and asking about the headers, but he just jumps to the bold conclusion that they must be bad without discussing that the weird headers might mean that the disks could be bad. Weird oddities are found like that all the time, especially with older software and dumps.

Enough with the bickering, discuss the topic, not the OP!

I see someone had a bad day.

It's a bit hard hard not to discuss the OP when he provided no evidence as to why this might be a bad dump, then even admitted he isn't even sure. That's deliberate spreading of misinformation in my book - something I thought this site doesn't have a place for. Of course if he actually provided any evidence or what he thinks would be a proper dump then it'd be fine.

But hey, gotta use bold text and yell at people who point this out.

The bold text is used to bring everyones attention to it, and it's not new here. Yelling is by tradition marked with capitalization, not bold text. Or is every bold text in this forum treated as yelling?

Either way, the topic isn't about the OP. If he claims something that isn't true ask him to prove it, otherwise leave it. Discussing the OP in third person is not something we do here. You either talk TO the OP, or you skip ahead to the next thread. You don't talk ABOUT the OP, or any other member. If you have a problem with a member you contact a mod or admin privately.

You've all made your arguments why it necessarily isn't a bad dump, leave it at that.

I mean, some of the floppies have creation dates of 2015 in their file system.

This means the release we have has most likely been CPU-patched for installation under virtualization. If there's anyone out there with an untouched set of floppy images, please make it available.

Why would that come with the floppy version of NT 3.1?

Because Windows NT 3.1 was distributed on both floppies and CD-ROM in the box.
