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).

 PostPost subject: [REQUEST] Compaq Windows 3.11/95 Recovery Media        Posted: Fri Jul 14, 2017 9:08 pm

Hello again,
I am looking for the appropriate Compaq Windows 3.11/95 Recovery Media for the 1994/1995 Prolinea series (5120/5133 Desktop and Tower format). I have several of these machines that were given by an older computer enthusiast. Unfortunately, the books and recovery media are all gone and I am having a hard time locating the correct Recovery Media for the Prolinea series of machines. As I am guessing, there should be a Compaq OEM Recovery CD for Windows 3.11/95 and possibly a Quickrestore CD based on other Compaq model lineups with similar chassis patterns in the same time frame. If anyone could help me out, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Kind Regards,

I think I saw recovery floppies for Windows 3.1 Compaq OEM on a site called Vetusware up for download for free. I remember it coming in 3 exes (one for each floppy) where you have to insert a floppy inside of your computer and it will write onto the floppy for you even though you can open the exes with WinImage and save it with the .img format instead of using that. You could also copy all of the files onto one unbootable (unbootable meaning you can't boot from it, you must use MS-DOS to explore through it) CD and try restoring it that way (guessing that MS-DOS is installed).
