Windows 2000 build 1814 is a build of Windows 2000. This build was found by BetaArchive user ReflectiaX on 8 March 2016.[1] On 3 December 2018, this build was uploaded to the BetaArchive FTP server by the same user. It is currently only available as a server build. Prior to ReflectiaX's discovery, the build was reported to be, perhaps accidentally, made available on Microsoft's European FTP server on 13 September 1998.[2] This is the last build that displays kernel mode messages in text fallback mode instead of graphics mode when the /noguiboot option is enabled and to display system crash messages on the boot screen.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • This build introduces the "Enable pointer shadow" option in the Mouse control panel applet.
  • The background color for both the boot and hibernation screens was changed from teal to blue, matching the shade that is used on the desktop background.
  • It is now possible to enable high-color icons on this build without re-logging in.
  • In the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel applet (APPWIZ.CPL), the "Remove Programs" option has been renamed to "Change or Remove Programs" and "Windows NT Setup" to "Configure Windows". The "Modify/Remove" option is now named "Change/Remove" and the description next to it has been reworded as well.
  • The "Internet" Control Panel applet (INETCPL.CPL) received a new icon, now using a globe instead of the IE icon.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Workstation reference in the server SKU[edit | edit source]

Despite being a Server build, the boot screen during setup, hibernation screen status, and the safe to shutdown screen still says Workstation, possibly due to incomplete rebranding.

Control Panel[edit | edit source]

  • Multimedia Control Panel applet ( mmsys.cpl ) may crash when clicking on CD Music.

Drivers[edit | edit source]

Sound cards may not operate properly in this build; and can be difficult to fix the problem.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • At one point of setup, an error is shown that it is unable to copy a file, the default answer is either the root directory of the CD-ROM drive or D:\I386\I386\ and has to be pointed to the I386 directory to copy these files.
  • When using 86Box, the mouse may disappear during the GUI portion of setup. If this happens to you, then you must use the keyboard to navigate the GUI setup.

Login[edit | edit source]

In some cases, the Welcome to Windows application can cause a login hang. If the system hangs while logging in, press Ctrl+Alt+Del, log out and then log in again.

Hibernation[edit | edit source]

The progress bar shown when the system is hibernating doesn't fill up the entire bar. Instead, a text-mode message will appear in the top left corner saying State saved, power off the system.
