Trying out the 4039 build today, setup ran fine. I'm dissapointed however becuase I can't get past the CRTL+ALT+DEL screen. When I hit ctrl+alt+del, it shows the desktop for 5 seconds as if it's loading and then goes back to the crtl+alt+del screen again. I've tried in both Virtual PC and VMWare. My BIOS date is set back to 8/29/2003, I don't know what else to try. This same thing happens with builds 4015-4053 with me. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

did you install it before you changed the date back or after?

set the date back in the host machines bios and install the OS natively on a partition or separate disk.
after setup is finished, disable the timebomb and set your date to the proper one before booting into your regular OS again as it can cause problems with software if you suddenly tell them its 2003.

Hmmm... I changed the date afterwards. I'll go ahead and re-install with the correct date later on this afternoon. I'll let everyone know if it works out. Thanks.

You change the BIOS date afterwards. 100% this is the problem. Just change the BIOS date before the install and then setup the thing :)

By the way, wanted to ask something

I change the BIOS date to install the thing. If I change it back to the correct date, will the OS still being usable ?


Thnx in advance.

Not if you don't remove the timebomb and don't bypass activation.
