Setup[edit | edit source]

Since this is an eHome build, a Media Center DVD Launcher will appear upon booting into setup, giving you the option of running setup manually or installing now from the DVD launcher. An EasyDriver option has also been added within this revision.

Manual setup is similar to that of aforementioned builds of Vista. The "Install now" option has also been changed and will instead directly take the user to the disk partitioning page as opposed to formatting automatically like in build 5284. Choosing the "Install now" option also installs the eHome features.

The text during the hardware portion of setup has been slightly changed, in addition to a new font being used.

The screen resolution during OOBE has been increased to 1024x768px.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • The boot screen text has been reverted to the one found in build 5308.6.
  • Several new icons have been introduced.
  • Both the network and sound tray icons now show information when hovering over them. Additional information is displayed if the network tray icon is selected.
  • The gradient color of the UAC prompt ribbon has been changed to orange.

Login screen[edit | edit source]

Several elements of the login screen have been updated. The position of the Ease of Access button has been moved to the bottom left corner and the Switch User button has been moved to a location below the password input box.

Welcome Center[edit | edit source]

The Welcome Center no longer appears upon login. Text shadows have been enabled on the computer details section, with several other text elements having received minor size updates.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • Windows Media Center may improperly render certain visual elements.
  • The branding in this build is incorrect and thus this build refers to itself as its server counterpart.
