If you look carefully the “About Windows” and the watermark on the wallpaper, this were meant to be a pre-release (or say its a earlier build of Windows)
you can get one for yourself at legacy windows beta websites (BetaArchive or OS VAULT)

EDIT EDIT: If you try install those, SET CORRECT TIME DATE in BIOS otherwise will ACTIVATE TIMEBOMB, when comes OOBE. Cut the network of the system to prevent asking log in MS account
another advice: Those are leaked long time ago, certain Build 7955


Windows 8.1 beta

Wow! That’s interesting! Have you tried out any other beta versions of Windows before?

there’s some tho, i have Windows 10 Build 9907 (pseudo localized)

Do you have any screenshots to share?

soon as i can
@WumboJumbo but unfortunately, version above Build 9900 = toasted
even you try set time on BIOS, it gives you BSOD, and you tried install on current time. Well one of their files are corrupted due to timebomb activated

@WumboJumbo Build 9907 (pseudo-localized)

Build 9834

Choose Desktop Wallpaper, then open the file contains the wallpaper you want, you have copy path C:\Users\Admin\Desktop[Example file][Example.jpg] (i mean your wallpaper name with .jpg at the end)
Open Desktop Wallpaper and copy path with wallpaper name in and thats it, don’t forget turn enable on otherwise wont work. Then right click the wallpaper want set and “set as desktop background”
