Windows Server 2008 build 5112 is the official Beta 1 build of Windows Server 2008, which was released to beta testers on 27 July 2005 via the Windows Vista Technical Beta Program along with its client counterpart.

This build reuses the winver banner found in Windows Server 2003 builds 3590 to 3663 from pre-reset builds, and it is the last available build to use such banner.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

SKUs[edit | edit source]

This release comes with two user interfaces, these are the normal SKUs, which have a typical desktop, and "Core" versions of these SKUs, which are missing many programs, lack a GUI and they use a command-line shell based on Command Prompt instead.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first available build of Windows Server to require ACPI support, as it is required by the new boot loader and trying to start Windows on a non-compliant system results in an error.
  • The copyright date of winver.exe has been updated from 2003 to 2005. This persists up to Windows Server 2008 builds 5284 and 5310.
