Windows 8 build 8175.5 is the official Developer Preview 4 build of Windows 8, which was given to finalists of the Windows 8 First Apps contest and later shared to the public on 28 June 2022.[1][2]

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • The setup background color has been changed from grayish blue to dark teal.
  • A slider has been added to the OOBE color picker.
  • PC Settings has been redesigned into the RTM iteration.
  • This build contains all of the wallpapers used in the official Consumer Preview build (except for the default and Theme2 wallpapers).

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Autorun[edit | edit source]

Like in builds 8155 and 8161, the Install now text on the autorun is in the System font.

USB 3.0[edit | edit source]

This build appears to have a broken xHCI driver, and therefore will crash during setup if USB 3.0 is enabled. Disabling USB 3.0 for the VM (or from BIOS/UEFI, on real hardware) should fix this problem.
