Windows 2000 build 1729.1 is a Beta 1 build of Windows 2000.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Many parts of the setup have been changed.
  • Text-mode setup no longer detects the IDE drivers during this portion of setup, and it now contains an option to restore a destroyed disk.
  • The graphical stage of setup now appears closer to the final version.
  • MSN gets updated to version 2.5 (which doesn't function as it loads a webpage that has been taken down).
  • A "Beta 2" watermark can be seen as the desktop is loading, but the winnt.bmp and winnt256.bmp files are still labeled as "Beta 1".
  • This build uses the /SOS switch in boot.ini. As a result, OS Loader shows a list of the loaded drivers during startup.
