    Only betas for Windows XP. Whistler Server is based on a beta for Windows Server 2003 which isn't placed yet.

  • The following builds are missing: 2428, 2430, 2432, and 2433

    2428 is in there.

  • @BF10 Yeah, I just noticed that. Also, I heard that build 2432 has never been leaked, and something about 2430 and 2433. I usually base whether OS betas are real or fake from BetaWiki, a site that has an entire list of builds in pre-releases of Windows operating systems.

    VirtualBox and VMware is not that great with builds below 2419. Use PCem, 86Box, or QEMU to get better display and sound.

    The problem with PCem is that PCem is very confusing

    Once you get the roms into the rom folder and set configuration to the high end Pentium, it's easy to run.

  • I have Beta 2 in german.

    emm yeah but PCem virtual drive dosen't have virtualized space so , the PCem drive space is For example in virtual box a 25GB drive = 250MB and in PCem 25GB virtual drive = 25GB

    QEMU uses virtualized space once you get it to set up. Also Whistler betas doesn't need more than 8GB unless you want to somehow make it a daily productive environment.

  • I tried installing guest additions from Vbox and I rebooted, only to expect a frickin' bsod. Vbox should add beta OS options.

    Well not ALL windows versions support Vbox Guest additions (I tested windows 95/ windows 98 and it didn't work), its probably the framework (NT or 9.x) or your not up-to-date with virtualbox.

    That build is a beta build for Windows Server 2003, which WinWorld does not host yet. This page is for Windows XP betas only. Also, I don't mean to sound like I'm criticizing, but this question has been asked a year ago by another person, and answered by another person.

    You need to set the BIOS date before installing to 2000-10-25

    What VM software are you using. If real PC or PCem/86Box/VARCem learn how to use the BIOS.

    Follow the instructions here then install normally. If that doesn't work use PCem.
