'''Windows Vista build 3790.1232''' is the first "Longhorn" build compiled after the development reset. It is the first build to be compiled in the newly named winmain branch. Basically, it is a rebranded [[Windows Server 2003]] SP1 beta. There is no evidence that this is a "Longhorn" build except for references in the End-User License Agreement. It was described by Grabberslasher on his UX.Unleaked blog on 2008-05-02. The Professional version of this build was leaked on 2011-08-14, while the Home Edition version of this build was leaked as the second set of 33 other Longhorn builds on 2020-01-25, alongside [[Windows Longhorn build 4005|build 4005]] and [[Windows Longhorn build 4039 (Lab06 n.030824-1954)|build 4039 (Lab06 n.030824-1954)]].<ref>https://www.betaarchive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21412&p=252192</ref><ref>https://www.betaarchive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=40726</ref> Unlike other post-reset builds, this build does not use <code>BOOTMGR</code> and thus can still boot without ACPI.

This build is not functionally a Longhorn build, but since it has the Longhorn EULA (End User License Agreement), it was still distributed as a Longhorn build and was intended to be tested as such.

Microsoft had numerous problems with the earlier Longhorn builds, including stability issues, memory leaks, and so on, and because of this, they decided to replace the current version of the underlying Windows Server 2003 codebase with a later version (Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, rather than Windows .NET Server 2003 Release Candidate). This build was forked from the same build of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (minus the EULA change) and still retained certain characteristics from it, such as the Windows Server 2003 beta-related notice window that would appear upon logging on.
