  • An OOBE is now displayed after installation, which prompts the user to enter a password for the Administrator account.
  • The Windows 7 login screen background has been set as the desktop background.
  • The ability to zoom out on the Start screen has been removed. It would return in the next build.
  • The default user icon has been updated.
