During the installation of the Longhorn 4001 build, people who have installed this build will know the phenomenon that the background behind the 'Please wait ...' that appears before OOBE starts is cut off. Is the original image file corrupted, or is there any specific reason why the image is cropped?
The Hardware Initialization stage? Probably to fit it in the small resolution that the operating system boots in at default. Even if it naturally upscales if you got the right hardware, it’s likely they preferred to have the image cropped since the program still runs at the resolution before (like with newer builds even, evident by the change of cursor on both sides). Why they would choose the background with the logo as opposed to one without it? Now that’s what should be asked, as we already know why it’s cropped.
hOI!!!!! i'm tEMMIE!!!!
Are you using VMware or virtualbox? Both of them work correctly on my machine. Make sure your hardware is OK. And also, please edit the date time. If it still happens, try re-download the image or find another source.
