Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Whilst partitioning on a clean drive, the user is not able to format the hard drive without restarting, due to the hard drive "not being ready".
  • The "completing installation" text in the Japanese version of this build overlaps with the progress bar on the bottom.

Translation errors[edit | edit source]

Some places of Welcome Center and Control Panel in the German localization are left untranslated, and in the driver update wizard, "Treibersoftware" (which means "Driver software") has been misspelled as "Teibersoftware".

Shutdown[edit | edit source]

Upon shutting down, the shutdown sound gets cut off after half a second of playing.
