Windows 2000 build 1814.1 is a build of Windows 2000. This build was found by ReflectiaX from BetaArchive on 2016-03-08. On 2018-12-03, this build was uploaded to the BetaArchive FTP by the same user. It is currently only available as a server build. Prior to ReflectiaX's discovery, on 1998-09-13 the build was reported to be, perhaps accidentally, made available on Microsoft's European FTP server.
It uses the new Internet Explorer shell interface in Windows Explorer, resembling Windows 98's shell, however some parts of the shell are not implemented. Despite being a Server build, the boot screen during setup and the safe to shutdown screen still says Workstation.

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.
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-Delete, and then log out.
