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 all,

I've had an ISO image of a 180-day multi-SKU evaluation of Windows Server 2008 (6.0.6001) for many years (since June 2013). It was downloaded from Microsoft Download Center, as all of the non-BetaArchive downloads I have stored over seven years.

Are you interested in archiving this?

Thanks in advance,

Win7

If it can be proven it's an authentic MS ISO then yes, thanks.

I also have a Windows 7 Enterprise RTM evaluation disc, by the way. I could make a separate offer, if you accept it. As with the Windows Server 2008 image, it was downloaded from Microsoft Download Center, but there is no link I think I can provide, as the one I had bookmarked now gives a 404 error, unless I'm mistaken...

Ah, well I have these already, and from what I see they are not eval ISOs but regular ones. But I have them already, and they are SP1 ISOs which won't be released for an another year.

Thank you, but I already have this one too :).

No, they are evaluation copies. The setup will let you continue if you don't enter the product key, which is not the case for any volume license or OEM installation disc, as far as I know.

Well they don't identify themselves as such. But either way I have them.

OK, so I happen to have a virtual machine with Windows 7 installed right from said ISO. I can't boot it up right now, but as soon as possible I will, to show you that it is an evaluation copy (same goes for Windows Server 2008, although I don't have enough space to run a virtual machine).

Anyway, if you already have them, I certainly won't upload duplicates to the FTP. :)
