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
winnt256.bmpfiles 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.
