Guys :). Did you know that there were two first ever 64-bit versions of Windows released.They were Windows Datacenter Server Limited Edition and Windows Advanced Server Limited Edition.Which were :beta: versions of Windows Server 2003.

More information you can find here:https://redmondmag.com/articles/2002/03/05/datacenter-server-limited-edition-released.aspx

Do we have them in FTP?

1. They were, in fact, betas of Whistler server (aka Server 2002) and were based mostly on Windows 2000
2. It was designed to run on IA-64 (Itanium) so it won't run on any emulator now)

Lack of an IA-64 emulator is likely due to how incredibly complex the architecture is. IIRC there were some efforts to bring that to QEMU but I'm not sure how it turned out. For now, having a real Itanium machine is the only way to run Windows on it.

There is an emulator for IA-64 called SKI. It can run IA-64 binaries but not emulate complete system.
