Windows 2000 build 1796.1 is a build of Windows 2000. This build changes the default desktop color from the shade of green used in Windows NT 4.0 to the shade of blue used in the final version of Windows 2000. A new graphical boot screen and safe to shutdown screen is now used to replace the text-based screens in previous versions of Windows.

Bugs[edit]

  • The floppy disk controller file, FDC.SYS in this version is broken, delete, rename it or replace it with 1877's FDC.SYS after text-mode setup by using a DOS/Windows 9x boot disk.
  • Booting from the CD results in a BSOD, use a DOS/Windows 9x boot disk to run winnt.exe (not winnt /b) from CD.
