Windows 2000 build 1814.1 is a build of Windows 2000. This build was found by ReflectiaX from BetaArchive on 2016-03-08.[1] 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.[2]

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.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

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.
