Windows XP build 2296 is the official Beta 1 build of Windows XP that was released to testers in multiple languages on 31 October 2000.[1]

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • This build is the base for the earliest available image of Windows Preinstallation Environment. It boots with the text-mode setup boot screen before switching to the graphical one.
  • The setup text while upgrading is changed for the official Beta 1.
  • A release notes document was added to the desktop.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Pinning apps on Start menu[edit | edit source]

Apps that are pinned to the Start menu cannot be removed, even if they are attempted to be removed via right clicking the icon and selecting "Remove from This List".

Login screen[edit | edit source]

If the user upgrades to this build, the login screen's font will change to Arial instead of the correct font (Trebuchet MS) on the first boot. It will load the correct font upon rebooting the system.

Korean version[edit | edit source]

Some places of the Korean version are left untranslated, like the graphical overlay of upgrade setup or the OOBE.
