Even stranger - In the checked builds, the WIM is labelled Windows LONGHORN Client =/

Yup, they probably wish to go back to the Longhorn days, pretend vista is a bad dream, and go straight to Windows 7 without releasing Windows Vista.

Thanks hb860. Another question, how do you check the WIM of an OS?

Emir214, he don't check WIMs. He is about "checked" builds from Microsoft. These builds for developers and contains more debugs/checks enabled than "public" builds

Checked builds also don't have any code optimizations either. :wink:

Windows Server 2008's WIMs are also labeled Windows Longhorn Server..

They label them quite awkwardly too.. like: Windows Longhorn SERVERSTANDARD, and Windows Longhorn SERVERENTERPRISE.

They're named awkwardly after the Software Licensing Service's SKU names.
