That's a lot of computers!
What made you choose the different OS's for different PC's?

Neat, have been looking for one of these for a while. I fear most of them are in landfills, as a result of the mediocre chipset fans Asus installed on these (and their other NF4) boards, failing within months and gradually cooking the chipset. :dead:

Heh. I got mine because it had a bad cap near the USB. Funny thing, the fan still works.

chinny22 - I have 2 DVDs from the Internet Archive that have nearly ALL Windows versions (from NT 3.1 to XP, excluding Vista and 7 which weren't out at the time these ISOs were made probably) and are pretty handy. They also have a recovery menu with a few utilities, such as 98SE w/ NTFS support, Partition Magic and a few other utilities. (Bart's Network Boot and a few I never usually heard of them from Bart)

Ah so your just playing round with different versions more then having a grand plan, fair enough.

Think I've got that same DVD download as well, even includes old IE, Media player and other MS software. Its come in handy sometimes at work where people have lost the original CD as it even lets you create an iso of OEM, Retail, ETC of each flavour. and windows refuses to accept anything else but same licence type.

(the non volume licence ones do have activation crack pre installed, so wouldn't like to runup a server at work with it though)

Yes, I did notice it has Retail.OEM and Corporate version for each XP versions etc.

However, I didn't get any IE, Media player or MS software on the DVD I have. Maybe it's on disc 2? I do know I got them off from Internet Archive through torrent (since it was faster than browser) and it had 2 discs.

Here's what the discs contain, from the Internet Archive site description:

Code: Select all
all_windows_dvd_1.iso:
Windows Server 2003 (Datacenter Corp, Enterprise Corp, Web Corp, Datancenter, Enterprise, Standard, Web)
Windows XP (Pro Corp, Pro Retail, Pro OEM, Home Corp, Home Retail, Home OEM, Media Center, Tablet PC)
Windows 2000 (Datacenter Server, Advaced Server, Server, Workstation)
Windows NT 4.0 (Enterprise Server, Server, Terminal Server, Workstation)

all_windows_dvd_2.iso:
Windows Millenium (Windows Millenium, Upgrade, StepUp)
Windows 98 (Second Edition, Second Edition Upgrade, First Edition, First Edition Upgrade)
Windows 95 (95C, 95B, 95A, 95 Original, 95 Upgrade)
Windows NT 3.51 (Server, Workstation)
Windows NT 3.5 (Server, Workstation)
Windows NT 3.1 (Advaced Server, Workstation)


Also all XP (and possibly 2003)and 2000 versions are auto-activated. Haven't tried NT4 but maybe I will as soon as I find a Pentium MMX or Pentium 2 to experiment with. Will see about the 9x versions though, since I have a Voodoo3/Athlon XP machine waiting for an OS.
