Seems like either the OS crashed on boot but didn't change the screen background or the screen render isn't rendering the blue background.

It's a beta after all. The boot video driver is also used for rendering blue screens as visible from the screenshot, so this is a matter of forgetting to clear the screen on a bugcheck, which would have been done if the crash happened after the Win32 display driver had taken control of the display.
