Windows Me build 2470 is a pre-Beta 3 build of Windows Me. This is the last build to use the startup and shutdown sounds heard in Windows 98.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • When upgrading and booting to this build for the first time, an "Inventory" window will appear asking for a Beta ID, to bypass this restriction, just type anything into the box and continue as normal.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

USB[edit | edit source]

  • Some USB devices will not work, despite having the correct drivers installed.

S3 drivers[edit | edit source]

  • Upon using S3 video adapters, Windows will complain that its own drivers will not work properly, thus the display will be stuck at 640x480x4bpp. This error will also appear upon every boot and other drivers cannot be installed correctly, meaning that S3 video adapters are not recommendable for this build.

Neptune reference[edit | edit source]

A total of 9 files with the version number 5.50.5116.1 and 5.50.5117.1 were found in this Millenium build, but it is unknown whether this Neptune build ever existed.

Some speculate this would've been a Milestone 2 build. It would've been compiled someday after 11 December 1999, meaning it would be one of the last Neptune builds before the Neptune project was canceled in January 2000.
