    Change the BIOS date for the virtual machine. If you need to find the date go to The Collection Book.

  • The Build 2465 to kinda same as windows xp

    That's because at that point builds reach the same as XP. 2481 adds the XP sounds and theme colors, and after that it's just minor development.

  • It should be noted that some Whistler builds have a hard time installing in hypervisors like VirtualBox and VMWare, but the solution is to install Whistler from a special copy of MS-DOS 6.22 with CD-ROM support and set the clock to the proper BIOS date for a certain Whistler build in DOS.
