Windows XP build 2430 is a pre-Beta 2 build of Windows XP. Only the Professional SKU of this build is available, while the Personal SKU remains unavailable to the public.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Added a strong drop shadow effect to the title bar text, which would be less noticeable in the next build.
  • This build renames "Whistler style" in Display Properties to "Luna style", only to be renamed back to "Whistler style" in the next build.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • It is not possible to upgrade to this build from build 2428 as setup will complain that it cannot locate the Windows installation needed to complete the upgrade.
  • The language for non-Unicode programs won't be saved when set during setup and defaults to English instead.
