BMW Factory E24 Repair and Maintenance Manual - ISO download

Post by Da_Hose » Sat Feb 08, 2014 10:00 pm

Hey everyone! I was helping someone on another forum work through problems installing an older BMW E24 Repair Manual program on their modern computer. In the process, I was provided with an image of the disk. I thought many of you here could use it, so I want to share. Click on the link below to download the .iso file.

Once you burn the file to a CD you can install the program on Windows 98 or Windows XP. I didn't test, but I am quite confident it will also run on Windows 2000.

For anyone who has Windows 7 or 8, you will need to create a virtual machine to run the CD.

I have Windows 8, so I installed Hyper V Client and loaded Windows XP from an old install CD I have in my archive of computer "stuff". You can lookup installing Hyper V in the link below.

The important thing is to remember that must FIRST enable virtualized environments in your BIOS. After that, the actual install/config. of Hyper V is really easy.


If you have Windows 7, then you need to install Virtual Machine and Windows XP mode. Check out the link below for information on that.

Cool, thanks!

I had a CD with the Repair manual, but it won't run on my computer. It may likely be the same one I just downloaded from you (thanks again).

I have, Windows Vista (yay!) and it probably would require the virtual stuff you detail above, right? If it does, I expect it is not possible with Vista, since nothing else works quite right either.

Windows Vista is like Windows ME. A half baked, intermediate effort. It wasn't worth "upgrading" from Windows XP you are correct, a lot of stuff doesn't work well in Vista.

However, Virtual PC 2007 was built to play nice with Vista.

I've never tried it myself, but give if I were you I would definitely give it a shot.
