Bugs[edit | edit source]
OOBE hang[edit | edit source]
This build has a bug where the OOBE would hang at the start of the WinSAT assessment if upgraded from an earlier version of Windows, forcing the user to terminate the
msoobe.exe process through means of either command-line tools or via the Task Manager in order to complete installation.
According to Paul Thurrott, this build was released internally as an RTM escrow build and was initially slated to qualify as a finalized product; however, the aforementioned bug (which was described as "catastrophic" as it allegedly "destroyed" upgraded installations) resulted in build 5840.16384 being compiled and internally released, resolving the issue.
