Do I need a time bomb for this build ? I installed it and set the bios back to 2/5/2000 and that worked,But when It is finished installing and it is at the desktop it keeps saying check the date and time. Does someone have a time bomb that i can use so i can set the time and date to the present..

1) Its millennium not georgia

2) If installed in VPC, did you use the data trick? In the configuration file?

Set the BIOS date inside the BIOS and hope it works.
Otherwise you need to reinstall it.

The timebomb is that if you change it back to today in the BIOS the software doesn't work anymore. If change the date again to today (i think at least that you did that) you get the same result what you have now.

You know with betas and trials of 2000/XP/Server 2003 and the Longhorn builds that used the i386 based setup had the timebomb in setupreg.hiv? And to remove the timebomb you had to load the hive into the registry and change something to do with setupdd? Well isn't there any files for the betas of Windows ME that you can edit or change, and you can then install that build without it having to adjust the time and date and getting an error like: ''This pre-release version of Windows ME you are attempting to install expired blah blah date''?

Ive noticed on this forum that there are much probems for installing alpha/beta's on an different date then the PC bios. i have found an program that can run apps (VMWare/VirtualPC/VitrualBox) as the specified date. The program is called RunAsDate it's very handy for trails but mostly for emulated beta testing. I hope that you have something with this info.
