I've just created a Windows XP VM so that I can test in IE6. (One day I'll look back and laugh.) There was a music track! It was quite soothing and had just started breaking into some vocals when I clicked "Finished".

What music was this? Is it available anywhere?


You can find the music after install in %SystemRoot%\system32\oobe\images\title.wma. It is often credited to Brian Eno, but i couldn’t find a source to support this claim.


a quick google will give you youtube versions (some downloads) of the installation music, but none with vocals. I've never heard the vocals.
