    I like Longhorn too, especially 4074. But it was such an unstable piece of junk that I only have it for its looks and only on a vm. It wreaks havok on any physical machine I try it on.

    AFAIK there was a WIM file format change from build 4093 to build 5048, so no, 4074's setup won't handle 5xxx and later WIMs. The oldest leaked build that will give a working setup is probably 5048.

    Yess indeed. Mine also.

    Edit**
    but you want it to look like the lh installer? I'm not too clear on the request.

    But do you mean 4074 old or new installer? There were two versions.
