Post subject:  Windows Georgia Builds (Not Bootable?)

So I was scrolling through my list of Georgia builds when I noticed something that I had almost forgotten about...none of these builds are bootable! My question is, did they come like that or did someone extract the files (and not extract it as an image.) Anyone have any ideas? :?

All the millennium builds were released as upgrades, all upgrades in the win9x series
weren't made bootable.

You can install them with a Windows 98 bootdisk.

First run Fdisk and Format, then copy the folder with the .cab files (all files) to a folder on C:\ and start setup as normal.

No need for Windwos 95/98.

I already knew that I could perform a full setup after using a boot disc, but I didn't know that they were all meant as upgrades...weird. Thanks for the info. :D

Ahh...true. I forgot about that. Ok, so all the Millenium beta's were upgrades...why did they decide to release a full Windows ME version?

That's no secret, it was always known as Millennium. Find a proof for the Georgia codename, because that's the one no one could link with ME so far.

Do you have any references or links to show this is the gui codename.
I'd be interested in seeing them if you have, thanks.

And what is the source for that statement? The GUI was never meant to change much from Windows 98 (the new parts already had codenames), so why should it have got a different codename? And if that's what you think, then why do you still list Georgia as the codename for ME on your website?

I think no one was ever able to show some document from Microsoft that even mentions the Georgia codename. And as long as that doesn't change, everything is just pure (and waste) speculation.

there were lots of changes, mainly the theme got less dark and more light, so its "friendlier", also the task pane from xp, which was introduced in neptune/me,
im sorry for that, i forget to update that, but its done now :P

well, i hope we can find one ;)

If it doesn't give references, it's useless. That's the whole problem with Wikipedia anyway.
