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).

Hi

I guess you are not really interested in every OEM's flavor of Windows install media, but in case you are I've got an Acer Vista RTM disc containing x86 English, German, French, Dutch and Italian languages.

Upload + scan or not?

I'd be interested in having that, as I do have a Acer laptop laying around that needs an OS

I think it could be accepted, if it's an actual OEM disc and not just a recovery disc that will only work with one specific computer/hardware. There are several Windows OEM install discs already on the FTP, I did try installing a few on my old PC and in VMs and those seemed to work fine.

It really depends on the disk. Lots of us members would appreciate having it avaliable, whether here or on some other site. Archive.org has a pretty good collection going and is a great place to upload to!

Hmm I just installed it in a VM and I don't think it's worth putting much effort into it. It has no Acer branding and basically is stock Vista but with 5 languages on the disc instead of 1 like regular media. Anyone could reconstruct that from original MS ISOs.

Does it bundle any drivers? If so, someone might find it useful.

No, there are no drivers on it or even anything else that does not come out of an MS building.

It will still be generous if you upload that to the FTP.
