The following are now available to technical beta testers on Microsoft Connect:

Build 5381 (X64)
Date 05/05/2006
Size 4,834.25 MB
Version 5381
Category Build
Milestone Beta 2
Product Keys
5381 and Up Ultimate Keys
Files
- VISTA_5381.1_64bit_Main_Client_Staged_DVD_EN.iso


Build 5381 (X86)
Date 05/05/2006
Size 3,347.84 MB
Version 5381
Category Build
Milestone Beta 2
Product Keys
5381 and Up Ultimate Keys
Files
-VISTA_5381.1_32bit_Main_Client-Staged_DVD_EN.iso

Few things to note here are that the x64 build increased by about 800MB's, whereas the x86 build only went up about 300MB's. Looks like drivers are really starting to fall into place. Also, with the release of 5381 for the preview, it looks as if build 5421 will be the Beta 2 release on May 22nd :)

OMFG!!! almost 5gigs??!!! thats insane. looks like x64 is out of the question until i can get my hands on a dual layer burner

Yeah, the x64 build doesn't look like it'll make it onto a single-layer DVD. I have a dual-layer burner, but no media for it. :)

Going to be busy for the next whole week anyway, so I'll just hang on for the moment and hope that the build released at WinHEC is a little smaller.

If the builds stay true to pattern thus far, I would assume the WinHEC release will be even bigger :s

Hello fellow 64 users, I had one question the vista trials you are doing, with the set back of this build are any of you worried that it may screw up something in your systems.

Not really sure what you mean by setback of the build?

The x64 builds haven't experienced any issues that the x86 builds haven't for the most part, accept for driver/application compatability.

Can you elaborate?

Basically, in previous builds, this wasn't a problem. The last build though had a problem where if my laptop went into sleep mode, when I logged back in I would have to manually connect to my wireless network. The machine would also not automatically connect to the saved wireless network. So everytime I started up, as well as came back from any sleep or hibernation mode, it would require me to go into "Connect to" then choose my network, then save it.

This was never a problem before.

If it was a bug like that only in the previous build, probably won't know if it happens again until you try this one :)

Was this a common issue with the last release?

I installed it, setup was pretty quick compared to previous builds. It took aroudn 35 minutes. All the devices were recognized except my Atheros wireless miniPCI card. I could install that using winxp driver. The perfromance of the system was pretty quick , But there are some quirks though. Media center will get blank if minimized during video palyback. Setting up wireless networks is still messy with so manu steps involved if one has advanced security like key index, shared vs open.

I downloaded and installed this. I like that the side clock bar is translucent by default, but I still can't choose for the start bar to be transparent.

5365 was the first truly usable build, in my opinion. It can only get better from this point on. :)
Looking forward to seeing what happens at WinHEC this year.
