Bugs and leftovers[edit | edit source]
Installation[edit | edit source]
If you're installing this build, you must either change the host PC's time to the BIOS date time listed (September 13, 2014) for the case of virtual machines or turn off all network adapters even if you turned off the time sync and set the BIOS date for the machine, otherwise after the hardware setup it will automatically adjust to the current time via online time syncing and activate the timebomb, instantly breaking the build and the bootloader.
Media Center[edit | edit source]
If you add Windows Media Center to this build using a purchased Windows 8.1 product key, the system subsequently identifies itself as running "Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center", along with a warning that the OS has not been activated.
