Windows 2000 build 1743.1 is a build of Windows 2000, which was found on 9 September 2011.[1]

Changes and new features[edit | edit source]

  • The safe to shutdown dialog box, used in previous NT builds since Windows NT 3.1 build 297.1, has been replaced with a temporary text-only safe to shutdown screen, presumably in preparation for the newer boot and safe to shutdown screens seen in build 1796.1 and up.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Turn off ACPI, Sound Blaster, or Setup will hang. However, the GUI setup hangs at the first boot at Networking page, so you must reboot and boot into GUI setup again.

Notes[edit | edit source]

It is recommended to set the CPU type as “486” to prevent crashes.

  • Installing this build in hypervisors will result in a BSOD on startup due to incompatibility with the floppy disk controller file, FDC.SYS. Either delete or rename it, which will disable access to floppy disk drives, or replace it with a later build's FDC.SYS (except build 1796) after text-mode setup by using a DOS/Windows 9x boot disk.
