I guess as a follow-up to my previous post about running Windows NT 3.1 under Oracle VirtualBox, I thought to share how this OS looks in the physical sense as it was a challenge to obtain a copy.
This particular retail box was still in shrink wrap for 20-odd years, and therefore the contents was intact. The sticker on the box in regards to a special offer, was aimed at existing Windows or OS/2 users to purchase at a reduced price.
The back of the box compared to the Advanced Server counterpart is focussed on running 32-bit analytical and productivity software, and also shows a slight reduction in RAM and hard disk space requirements to run.
Now let’s check what’s inside. Included you are able to install the complete OS by either CD or a set of 22 3½” floppy disks. There’s also two 5¼” floppy disks to start the installation from, though if you had to install off a 5¼” altogether a coupon is included to send to Microsoft for a copy.
Unlike Advanced Server, the main notable documentation included is the System Guide.
