How did you get it from MS? - it's not on the WHS Connect site

GD it. Maybe they finally updated it to SP2 for Windows 2003. Looks like I'll be updating my server... or reinstalling it, it seems. :(

I gotta see if there's an upgrade function, or at least comment about it on the M$ forums.

Hmmm... insider beta probably means that it's not going to be out for a while, or it's not a real CTP.

I finally installed it. I'm not going to post screenshots, since I am not allowed. Yeah, somehow I got invited to the insder program a while ago :)
Well, I can tell you that this builds cooler than beta2. It uses the RTM of SP2. That's all I'm going to say.

Edit: I'm not leaking it, I will not upload to the FTP until further notice. Microsoft is after leakers and is pretty serious this time. Let someone else do the job, I know someone will just leak it.
Sorry guys, you have to wait.

Btw, who is in the insider program here?

This CTP has just gone official:

Quote:
Windows Home Server Build 06.00.1371 has officially been signed off by the team and we are now making this build available to all Beta Participants. The download packages are available from download from MS Connect now.

Confidentiality
What this means to you. Now that we have announced the general availability to the public, you can now freely discuss and share screen shots of Windows Home Server CTP like you had in Beta 2, but as with all betas and any MS Intellectual Property, you are not allowed to post or redistribute the software.


Download now! (WHS beta participants only)

I've just started installing this, I will post a few screenshots here:

Image
The Vista-esque start to Setup, just after the DVD has booted.

Image
Next screen looks like this though, very Server 2003-ish. All the things that need input are at the start of the setup process.

Image
The screen you get when you select a hard drive already containing a WHS installation (in my case the Beta 2 build). It then formats this drive, but leaves the WHS data partitions as they were before.


Following about 5 reboots, in between which it installs and configures various bits of WHS and extra components like Windows Desktop Search, you get the new OOBE sequence, which is all very pretty and Vista-like. Some example screens of it:

Image

Image

Image


Image
The desktop once OOBE is completed. New icon for the WHS console, new Vista-like wallpaper, not a lot else different from Beta 2 really.

Image
The final build of WS2003 SP2 is now included with WHS. Still strange that they don't give you the option to register it to your name, though you should be able to it through the registry if you want to.

I don't suppose that it's possible to do an upgrade on top of the beta 2 release, is there?

I'm going to have to pull some ~30GB of data off the system now, and install this new release.

That seems to look pretty good. The new OOBE phase is still quite "n00bish" (but we need to admit, that's the main user group this is targeted to), but it looks better than the one from beta 2. I especially like the image in the "About Windows" window.

BTW, what does it say in the boot.ini?
