Changes[edit | edit source]
- Similar to build 8140, a new "Windows 8 Beta" branding is used in System Properties and the
winverbanner. However, some parts of the build, including the boot screen and setup, still mention "Windows Developer Preview".
Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]
Autorun[edit | edit source]
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.
DPI settings crash[edit | edit source]
Adjusting the DPI settings will result in a bugcheck after attempting to apply changes.
Intel Graphics driver black screen bug[edit | edit source]
It is recommended to NOT install the Intel Graphics driver, as it will cause a black screen bug to occur, effectively rendering the display useless.
