Microsoft’s switch to a Black Screen of Death inside Windows 8 has been captured on video.
WinRumors reported yesterday that the software giant has started to use Black colored error screens for its famous Screen Of Death messages. The switch to a Black Screen of Death could be a temporary one, similar to the switch in Longhorn build 5112. Microsoft has only ever used a Black Screen of Death in Windows 3.x when DOS-based applications failed to execute correctly. Microsoft typically uses Black screens when its operating systems are attempting to load following the power-on self-test (POST).
An anonymous tipster has sent us the following video, uploaded to YouTube. It shows the new Black Screen of Death inside the leaked Windows 8 pre-Milestone 3 build, 7955.
