I got another screenshot from this "friend" (quotation marks because he lied to me once, in that modified 95)
He claims from it to come from "Neptune Build 5555" which i highly doubt its existance. The screenshot seems to be fake, but i wanted to confirm. Here it is:

Looks pretty fake for me, but is it fake?

Yes, it's fake. 5555 would've been compiled in 2001 if it was real.

Judging by the size of this screenshot, and how the bottom area is rendered accordingly, that is not following anything Microsoft has been doing for years about NT 5.x era, it's most likely a fake and you have been fooled.

Thanks for confirming. I already doubted this, but didn't know really.

A little late to the discussion, but this is fake as hell. Bootscreens in NT versions until 7 were in 4-bit color. However, this appears to be in 32-bit color. Not only that, the squares don't quite match the style Microsoft use, and the bootscreen in general is an unprofessional looking mess.

Just something to recommend OdysseyNeptune, you should join the discord. A lot of your forum posts would answered quicker on there and a lot of people can help you with stuff you are trying on the discord.

That screenshot is indeed fake, for the reasons the other users have stated. However, one cannot conclude that if Neptune build 5555 exists then it "would've been compiled in 2001", because that discounts the possibility of build number skipping.

I won't join the discord, and maybe, build 5555 was compiled by skipping numbers.
