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 site has a listing of its files: http://16bitos.com/500ums.htm , so it definitely exists.
If someone has it, it would be greatly appreciated if they could upload it.

Isn't it supposed to be one of the most common versions of MS-DOS?

- xelloss: Yeah, but the thing is, everywhere I search for, including the BetaArchive FTP, has 5.00 non-upgrade, 5.00 upgrade, and 5.00a non-upgrade, but not 5.00a upgrade. I can't seem to find 5.00a upgrade anywhere.

Only 16bitos seems to have it and good luck getting it from its owner as the person has been here on BetaArchive before and stated he will never share any binary because he follows copyright law to the letter.
The other person that has it (albeit the 360k version) is ibmpc5150 here: https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion ... enshot/p14 . Scroll down to see it. If someone can contact him and ask him to upload it somewhere, that would be nice. Or if someone else has it and was able to provide it.

You MAY mistake... 05:00 is the time of the file, and the letter “a” mean archive, I suppose... you remember the attribute for the file in MS DOS? A is for archive, H is for hide, R is for read... me too I can mistake!

- marceg16579: The letter "a" in the time stands for AM, meaning it's 05:00 in the morning. :p But this *IS* MS-DOS 5.00a, look at the November 11th, 1991 date, as well as the files that differ from the 5.00 non-a upgrades that we have.

Yeah, November 1991 is 5.00a for sure. Original 5.00 is from May 1991 IIRC?
