Windows 8 build 8176 is a pre-Consumer Preview build of Windows 8. This build was leaked on 2019-01-04. The setup background color has been changed from grayish blue to dark teal.

This build has a new wallpaper set, identical to Consumer/Release Preview (except for Theme2 wallpapers). It is also the last known build of Windows 8 to include a Start button on the taskbar, as of 2019.

Bugs

USB 3.0

This build appears to have a broken XHCI driver, and therefore will BSOD during setup if USB 3.0 is enabled. Disabling USB 3.0 for the VM (or from BIOS, on real hardware) should fix this problem.

BSOD on adjusting DPI settings

Adjusting DPI settings will cause a freeze and then a BSOD. After restarting, the adjusted DPI settings will be applied. [1]
