Redpill[edit | edit source]

Redpill in this build is not that much different from build 7955, but the color of the clock on the Start screen has been changed from black to white, like in the older build 7963.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • After the first reboot when upgrading to this build, the system will boot into setup with the text Preparing the new system.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Aero[edit | edit source]

  • This build appears to have a slightly broken Windows Aero theme, with only the top portion of the window frame using the blur effect, leaving the side borders transparent.

System Reserved partition[edit | edit source]

  • The System Reserved partition (commonly set as the D drive) is shown in Explorer.

Upgrading[edit | edit source]

  • When logging in after completing OOBE, Windows will immediately restart the system before the desktop is shown to the user.
