Windows Vista build 5310 is a pre-Beta 2 build of Windows Vista, which was shared by BetaArchive user marcoguy on 19 December 2016.[1] Despite being an eHome OEM build, it does not have the $OEM$ folder from build 5284 (vbl media ehome) located in the sources folder of the DVD.

This is the last build of Windows Vista to use Longhorn branding in the Starter SKU, along with the "Longhorn Starter Edition" winver banner first seen in build 5215.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • The exclusive desktop wallpapers for the Starter SKU have been removed.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Windows Recovery Environment cannot be accessed from the installation media, since it throws an error upon launching.
  • Installing this build in VMware Workstation 16.x compatibility mode may cause a spsys.sys error with PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA bugcheck after the OOBE finishes. When the computer restarts, do the OOBE process again and it will move on without crashing for the second time.
  • Installing this build with integrity checks enabled will cause winload.exe to not pass the integrity checks, resulting in a "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file." error. To fix this, disable integrity checks.

Winver[edit | edit source]

Despite being compiled in 2006, the copyright date in winver still says 2005. This is likely due to the eHome branch not being fully synced with other branches.

Shutdown[edit | edit source]

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