Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Updated the boot screen, one noticable change is that the Windows XP style graphics on the loading bar were replaced with a different style.
    • Also, the alternative AUTOCHK screen has been uplifted. Most notably, the bars between both the black and grey parts have been removed and the Windows Vista logo at the top right has been slightly shrunken in size and moved to the top middle.
  • Changed the RSS feeds gadget to match the version later seen in the official Release Candidate 1 build, along with renaming it to Feed Headlines.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Graphics driver[edit | edit source]

The default VGA graphics adapter is very buggy, often having the screen flicker through resolutions and cannot have resolutions higher than 800x600 pixels. However, if you upgrade from a previous build, you can have 1024x768 and higher.

Horizontal icon spacing[edit | edit source]

Like in builds 5471 and 5477, a horizontal icon spacing quirk is still present.
