  • The Windows Classic theme will not function due to a broken Windows Classic.theme file.
  • Although the Desktop Window Manager is present and can be activated by pressing Ctrl+Shift+F9 as in Windows Server 2008 build 4066, it will black screen due to a broken DirectX installation. It can fixed via the instructions listed on the Windows Aero page.
