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).

This build is from June 10, 1997. This build is the second oldest NT 5.0 build we now have only newer than 1515.
Download here: https://mega.nz/#!K8tCnSjS!71mDqEs4jtmz ... Xa2ICuCcO8
I tried to install in VirtualBox, upgrading from NT 4.0, but I get either stuck at the text-based setup in a loop asking me for the CD when it is in the drive, or this bluescreen:

This is not supposed to happen. Any ideas???

Yep. I wish I had my main computer for now but I have to wait until Friday.

For these builds do not boot from the CD. Boot via a bootdisk and use winnt.exe.

Or create the three boot disks.

Edit: screenshots:

The video part of this build is almost broken...

Nice! How did you install it and what software did you use? Funny that the text beneath the icons are underlined, just like 1585. What are those two icons down there next to the start button BTW?

WebTV for Windows (or the icon for Internet Explorer as in other Memphis and NT builds from 1997) and Show Desktop.

Win7

Clicking on the TV icon opens up some sort of a Active Channel browser:

Wow that's so interesting. In 1585, it's an IE icon, and in 1515, there is only a small show desktop icon in the corner.

Kinda surprising to see a new pre-beta NT5 build to finally surface.

Where was this build found? :)

From my attempts, I cannot install this build. I tried in 86box and in Virtual PC, but the results are the same. I use a Windows 95 bootdisk to format the hard drive, and then run winnt.exe off of the iso However, once it restarts to go to the second part of the setup it sits at a black screen with the words "OS Loader v5.0" flashing repeatedly. Did I do something wrong? (or maybe this build hates me)

Try upgrading from NT 4.0. I also had this problem.

The reason behind stucking at "OS Loader" is mostly because BOOTSECT.DAT points to NTLDR instead of $LDR$ (SETUPLDR.BIN). Basically it tells NTLDR to reload itself but not $LDR$.

Open BOOTSECT.DAT for hex/binary editing (using HxD or from DOS via "edit /80 C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\BOOTSECT.DAT"), and replace the first NTLDR string with $LDR$, as highlighted here and save:

Upgrading from NT 4.0 does not work for me on PCem. On the reboot to TXT Setup it keeps wanting me to use the NT 4.0 disk, then it crashes with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Follow the instructions on his post, as he just edited it.
Thanks to his instructions. I was able to install this build on VirtualBox without problems.
...
This build has a very buggy graphics. Looks like one of those Win32 viruses on Danooct1's channel. Would actually be cool trying out one of those on this build.

The version of IE4 is 4.70.911, by the way. Despite this and the build number, I actually think it feels closer to 1515 than 1585.

It's not a bug with the graphics, it's a bug with this build's explorer, which makes it have a seizure when Web View (read: single click hyperlinks) is enabled. Disable it to make it look sane again.

Also, IMO, I'm not too sure where you're getting a resemblance to 1515 here, as this has way more similarities to 1585 than 1515.

Anyway, nice find, and let's hope stuff like this keeps coming.

1515 integrates with internet features such as Active Desktop. This build uses the internet-based explorer if I'm correct. Due to being early it has issues that causes the window trailing. I also find it being quite close to 1515 in features but 1585 in appearance.
