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.
