Windows Itanium History

The betas of Windows S2003, according to this topic on BA are called Windows Datacenter Server Limited Edition and Windows Advanced Server Limited Edition. Some more info can be found here.

When I was searching in the BA topic, I just found a download link of an OS called Windows Advanced Server (dunno if its XP or 2000 it turns out to be 5.2.3663.0, but it has an ia64 directory in the CD when opened with PowerISO.)

The IA64 directory of the CD
Setup.exe properties. Didn't know that the-eye.eu archived betas after all!

How to get the BIOS date of a beta build

If the beta you want to check has the following part at the end YYMMDD-HHMM of the build tag, for example 950824-0000, the BIOS date should be a day after compilation of the build, like 1995-08-25.

Tips in OS installations

  • Windows NT 3.1 build 340 thru Windows NT 3.51 build 944 cannot run on processors higher than a Pentium I. It can be fixed by editing files after text setup.[1]
  • The file WINSETUP.BIN is corrupted in Windows 98 build 1500. Therefore, one has to replace the file to install it.
