evasive wrote on 2021-01-23, 23:53: I may have some files in my chaos archive somewhere. Anything in particular you are looking for? I'm looking for BIOS updates for legacy models not preserved by necam.com (which includes most of consumer lineup like NEC Ready).

Re: Help to identify NEC disks

Now I'm "recovering" system from your CD. Despite it's bootable, the Packard Bell PB640 couldn't boot from it, so I had to extract OSBOOT floppy. I can see all the results tomorrow. Excellent! I appreciate your efforts. Despite using that NEC for the entire second half of the 90s, this is the only …

MattJH! wrote on 2020-12-28, 19:53: There might have been an easier way! That's just how I ended up doing it. Yes, it is. You could install/recover your system on 86Box, and then take files from virtual hard drive with WinImage or something else. On VirtualBox I wouldn't get those screens with 256 …

Re: Help to identify NEC disks

Anyway, I really wanted to see the actual videos again, but my Win 10 machines predictably wanted nothing to do with SETUP.EXE no matter what I did. I ended up teaching myself how to bring up a virtual XP desktop using Oracle's VirtualBox so that I had something I could actually install it on, and …

Re: Help to identify NEC disks

Amazing. Thank you! Unfortunately, those video files only play audio on my end. I tried a few different programs. I wonder if the actual video output is embedded elsewhere on the CD. Oh well, I appreciate the attempt! No, video files here are complete and play successfully on included Quicktime 2.0 …

Re: Help to identify NEC disks

In it was my NEC 962X recovery CD (note "Tri Films Merlin II"): nec-recovery-cd.jpg And something I've had living in the vague recesses of my memory for decades now -- a standalone installer for Merlin himself, version 2.0: nec-merlin-cd.jpg I've downloaded your copy, but only yesterday have looked …

Re: Help to identify NEC disks

I apologize for necro-ing a thread this old but I have a rather curious story to tell. Don't worry, it's okay. My friend really wants to find Merlin again. I realize this is ridiculous but, please, if it is at all possible, could you make an ISO of that disc or … or SOMETHING? I'd also accept just …

Re: IBM Aptiva 2134 recovery disks

is this information located in the recovery media or somewhere else? They can be identified by part number (in this case 76H3725 and 76H3721): http://ps-2.kev009.com/pcpartnerinfo/ctstips/deca.htm Original (uncracked) version of these images is here: https://archive.org/details/BetaArchive_PC_OS_ …
