Windows 2000 build 1627 is a pre-beta build of Windows 2000, which was mentioned on the Fate 355 warez CD list and was shared on BetaArchive on 22 March 2019. This build is one of the earliest available Windows NT builds to implement a timebomb.
Timebomb[edit | edit source]
If the timebomb is triggered, the user is no longer able to boot the system. When installing timebombed builds with a date set beyond the expiry date, setup will notify the user to set date and time.
In addition, when booting into setup, a notification is displayed that a BETA version of the Windows NT operating system is being installed.
