Windows 8.1 build 9299 is a Milestone 1 build of Windows 8.1. An x64 checked/debug version leaked to BetaArchive on 2019-03-30. Due to its earliness, it still identifies itself as Windows 8 in many places and the kernel version is still 6.2. It is currently the earliest leaked build of Windows 8.1.
Blank Screen on Boot
This build often boots up to a blank screen after logging in, instead of loading the start screen directly. Pressing the Windows Key can load the start screen and allow the user to continue.
Like most Windows 8 builds, this build has a semi-broken timebomb, which gets nulled if you install on current date. If you do that, you won't be able to change the wallpaper, unless you use a tool like DeskImg.
