Re: How exactly does activation in modern versions of Windows work

Windows connects to Microsoft Servers, verifies the key entered by the user, and then activates the system, if the key is good.

Windows 2000 can barely connect to the modern internet, so Neptune should be able to as well.

Re: Windows 95 on VM

If you happen to have a Windows 7 or XP machine lying around, then I would try using Virtual PC 2004 on those.

Re: Is there a Windows 2000 Embedded

Looking at BetaWiki and The Collection Book, the answer is no, even though Windows NT 4.0 had an embedded version. I also don't know of any NT 5.0/2000 builds that have an embedded SKU. As Windows 2000 is my favourite OS Windows Server 2003 R2 Some people think Windows Powered is just like Windows 2...

Re: 0x78 BSOD while installing 7746

The earliest known build to have significant changes from Windows 7 is 7788 (unleaked). The person who leaked 7746 also has a bunch of other early builds, including 7788, 7791, 7792, 7793, 7814, 7871, 7875, 7878, 7880 and 7899, among plenty of others, but decided to only leak 7746 for some reason. ...

Re: Longhorn Milestone Confusion

I have a question about some builds of Longhorn. Specifically, the 2 4029 builds, and the transition from M5 to M6. If you check the compile dates, you can see that builds 4030 and 4031 (M5) were compiled after the first M6 build. I don't understand why, as it would seem that after M6 started, no m...

Re: 0x78 BSOD while installing 7746

Try removing the red/blue pill In this assembly there is not even a hint of the Metro interface. In fact, this is the same seven, apparently there are some innovations at the kernel level and even in its infancy. Most of the early Win 8 builds are still W7 themed, yet have many interesting features...

Re: Longhorn as a main OS?

Best build would probably be 3683, 37xx a low-40xx or 4074. But I wouldn't recommend doing it.

Re: NT 3.5.807 Pre-RTM

Imagine builds having a gender. People call inanimate objects (usually things like ships, or cars) as "her", "she", etc. all the time, even though we have the word "it". I guess this build came from warez and has different files. You should contact Overdoze. Although the build is listed, the page d...
