Bugs[edit | edit source]

Compatibility[edit | edit source]

VMware Workstation[edit | edit source]

It is not recommended to install this build on a disk controller other than LSI Logic as setup will hang during the second phase of installation.

Desktop Window Manager[edit | edit source]

When using this build in modern VMware hypervisors, the Desktop Window Manager may fail to render the Aero environment properly and DWM may become unstable and crash. To enable Aero in this build, install it on a compatible physical machine or use an older version of VMware.
