Windows Vista build 5310 is a pre-Beta 2 build of Windows Vista, which was shared by BetaArchive user marcoguy on 19 December 2016. 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.
New features and changes[edit | edit source]

This build is notable for having unique text on the boot screen, which says "Loading Windows Vista™".
Applications[edit | edit source]
- Windows Media Center has been updated with a redesigned title bar and playback controls.
- Windows Media Player 11 will now display parental ratings on the Library tab by default.
- The copyright date for Internet Explorer 7 has been updated to 2006.
- The "Set up devices" option has been removed from Welcome Center.
Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]
- The Sample Media, Sample Music, Sample Pictures, and Sample Videos folders contain new content.
- Game ratings are now shown in the details pane rather than the reading pane in Games Explorer.
- 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
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREAbugcheck after the OOBE finishes. When the computer restarts, do the OOBE process again and it will move on without crashing for the second time.
Winver[edit | edit source]
Despite being compiled in 2006, the copyright date in
winver still says 2005. This is likely due to this build being compiled in the eHome branch.
Shutdown[edit | edit source]
Upon shutting down, the shutdown sound gets cut off after half a second of playing.
