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.

Setup[edit | edit source]

Setup is mostly similar to the previous build of Vista.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • This build changes the text on the boot screen to Loading Windows Vista™.
  • The set up devices option has been removed from Welcome Center.
  • The Sample Music and Sample Pictures folders in the Pictures and Music directories now contain new contents.
  • "Add Gadgets" window now shows Sidebar gadget icons in 3x1 layout rather than 4x1.
  • Game ratings are now shown in the details pane rather than the reading pane in Games Explorer.

Windows Media Center[edit | edit source]

Windows Media Center received a few updates. The wallpaper has been changed, and the title bar and music bar have also finally been updated to a much more modern style, compared to XP's WMC. Although still not fully finished, it does look a whole lot different.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Upon shutting down, the shutdown sound gets cut off after half a second of playing.
  • Installling this build in VMware Workstation 16.x compatibility mode causes 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.
