Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • The startup sound may not play when logging in.
  • In the Korean version of this build or any other language besides English, the timebomb expired error in LogonUI is not translated properly.
  • Setup of the Simplified Chinese Personal variant is unable to load the EULA when booted from the CD. To install this build, it is required to either install using an unattended batch script configured to automatically accept the EULA, or to upgrade from Windows 98 or Me, as this issue does not affect setup when started from Windows.
