Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Added an extra step to the OOBE to check the internet connection and to ask for the necessary settings to connect.
  • The icons in Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer have been shrunk and changed their appearances to resemble the ones seen in later builds.
  • Quick launch is now disabled by default.
  • The taskbar is now locked by default.

Luna[edit | edit source]

  • Made the Luna theme's title bar text drop shadows less noticeable compared to the previous build.
  • Added a shadow on the Windows logo on the start button.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

The setup is unstable and is prone to encountering HARDWARE_INTERRUPT_STORM BSODs with the code 0xF2. If this is encountered during the formatting, the partition needs to be deleted and reformatted again. If this occurs during the GUI stage of setup, then this build doesn't work for the PC.
