If you want, I can give you an account to upload it to my server. I'd be happy with any whistler, as I am yet to put any on my server.

PS. 200th Post!

@alisdair: Yes, that's the main difference. Personal is the XP Home beta, and Pro is the XP Pro beta, apparently.

personal almost same as professional with some fuctions (eg ecryption) disable, removed or modified(1 processor support instead of 2).

Professional builds are alot common than personal builds, since professional is the full edition. That makes personal builds more rare and harder to find.

They just have differences in dosnet.inf, txtsetup.sif, hivesys.inf
In personal, some files for pro features are missing in i386
(gpedit.msc for example) BTW
Timebomb removed. (on accident)

So polish the scratches out of it.
Can't be damaged more than that, It's pretty hard to break a CD these
days without completely folding it in half.

Depends if Windows OCManage was sitting on the chair as it went over that is a lot of pressure going on that cd and i wouldn't be surprised if it cracked or snapped in half.

Maybe if it were thick shagpile carpet.
But then, what would a CD of a beta be doing on the ground.
Also why wouldn't you have it backed up on DVD or hard drive.
Pretty much a pointless poll if you ask me. :roll:

How on earth do you "accidentally" remove a time bomb, either you set
out to do it or you didn't.

Well maybe he tripped? fell on the keyboard and the keys that were pressed just so happened to remove the time bomb :D

Author:  alisdair [ Sun May 13, 2007 8:24 pm ]
Post subject: 

i think what he means is the timebomd was left out of one of the builds by accident.... he couldnt have removed it from all of the pro/personal builds?

Post subject: 

he problary mean he was removing the timebomb for himself, but he acciudently removed it from the orginal too

Author:  Kenneth [ Mon May 14, 2007 6:56 am ]
Post subject: 

I had to reformat my HD in that time. Though i removed the timebomb from whistler pro 2428, i also made it unattended.

EDIT: Used Pro CD, Fixed it to personal.

though textmode Setup shows

Code:
Windows Whistler Profssional Setup


rather than

Code:
Windows Whistler Personal Setup.
