I installed yesterday Whistler build 2202 and I was asking me why microsoft released that build.
I couldnt find any diferences to Windows 2000 even the intern version number ist NT 5.0 and not 5.1
Including that the boot files are damaged. I installed it by doing an upgrade from win 2k

Its always the same at that early Versions, they just take the latest one and include Updates and so on, but no new features.

Correct me if im wrong.

SD=Setup Disk, the bootfiles are damaged because its an internal build and not for public.

Setup Disk? I thought it means something like "Software Developer", but that doesn't make much sense, too....

Doesn't anyone make bootdisks any more..? :?
I made this build bootable 4+ years ago & shared the ISO then,
made my own modified 3-Step bootdisk.img & added it to the ISO...

& I doubt the SD means "Setup Disk" something that trivial wouldn't be used in
a desktop build string, I thought it was something along the lines of what Daniel
said it was..!
I even have a page on 2202 by Thurrot here somewhere, I'm sure he stated what
it meant on his sight at the time...

Being that it's been so long since I'd played with this build, I decided to
have another go at this tonight...
After browsing through the many files responsible for the booting &
installation of the OS, I've managed to find that there's absolutely
nothing wrong with the build, there's no damaged "boot files" as some
have said, it was simply made to install from the hard-drive, & quite
possibly intended to be as an upgrade onto Win2000...

...Here's the txtsetup.sif from build 2202...
Image

...Here's the txtsetup.sif from 2211, which is typical of what it looks like
when the setup is meant to run from the CD-Rom...
Image

Although for the sake of trying, I had a go at making it boot & run setup
from the CD-Rom....
Started out with a few problems...
1st up, the usual "inaccessible boot device" error...
Image

Then managed to get past that, & into another problem...
Image

Then after an hour or so fiddling, got a bit further...
Image

Image

The EULAs definately odd in this build...
Image

& then hits a bunch of MS Corp lines on the end
Image
Image

Then, when it looked as though it was going to happen, I struck another glitch...
Even though it saw the drive & created the partition, it wouldn't format it...
Image

I looked at it with the original boot image I made some time ago, & found the
partition is definately there, & active, just wont format...
I'll leave this as a challenge for another day when I'm bored...

I also made a full 4 floppy Bootdisk set, just to see if I still get the
"Inaccessible Boot Device" error, & booted from the floppies, & because
the setup could access the 4th Bootdisk boot sector, it never errored at all,
just kept asking to place the setup CD in the CD-Rom, even though I had the
ISO mounted...
So my guess here is the "Inaccessible Boot Device" error is because it can't access
the ISO boot sector, being that it's been made to install from the hard-drive, not
the CD-Rom...
