For reasons I'll never understand, anything I've ever posted screens of is systematically being claimed as either fake or non-existent.
Apparently the latest such is Windows Powered...

& rather than post the facts on the forum where the attitude of certain members would test my patience, I'll post them here for future reference...

First up, there are a few there that insist that Windows Powered was simply the SAKit, which was used to alter certain aspects of the OS used, which then resulted in the OS being rebranded, whilst that is only partially true, a simple search on Microsofts own sight itself states that Windows Powered is in fact an OS that installs from CD, & that the SAKit is a separate item...

Here are 2 such screenshots from 2 separate pages from the MS sight that list Windows Powered as being an operating system, separate from the SAKit itself...
Note the text below in bold lists the operating systems that can be used to build a NAS server appliance master OS image, then underneath that, mentions the SAKit as a separate piece of software...

Preparing a Windows Powered NAS Server Appliance Master Operating System Image for Manufacturing
If you are preparing your Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliance for manufacturing, you will be most interested in the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) pre-install kit sections of the help documentation. The following instructions lead you through the preparations for manufacturing NAS.

Prerequisites:

Hardware platform that is identical to what will be manufactured
Windows 2000 Server, Advanced Server, or Windows® Powered CD
Most recent Windows 2000 service pack CD
Windows 2000 OEM pre-install kit CD
OEM-specific Product Identification (PID)
Server Appliance Kit 2.0 CD
Microsoft® Services for UNIX CD
Microsoft® Service for Netware CD (optional)
To prepare a Windows Powered NAS master operating system image for manufacturing

Install Microsoft Windows 2000 on the boot drive and partition of server appliance hardware platform.
Install Services for UNIX.
Optional: Install Services for NetWare.
Install the latest service pack for Windows 2000.
Install any quick fix engineering (QFE) updates.
Configure the administrator account.
Secure the configuration.
Install the Server Appliance Kit. From the Setup Wizard, select No, do not install the Server Appliance Kit development environment, and then select Yes, install a Server Appliance Solution. Select NAS as the type of server appliance you would like to create, and accept the default components.
Install the language resource files for the Server Appliance Kit 2.0.
Optional: Add custom or third-party add-ins according to developer’s instructions.
Optional: Install custom branding.
Optional: Install OEMConfigDll.
Run SaPrep.
Run Sysprep.
Optional: If you have added failover capability to your appliance, install the failover operating system by repeating steps 1-12 on the failover partition.
Shut down appliance and remove boot hard drive, which will now serve as the master image.
Note   Never boot from the master disk directly. Only boot using copies of the master.

Copy the master image onto your test units.
Test units thoroughly.
Once your Windows Powered NAS server appliance master OS image and hardware have been validated, you are ready to begin manufacturing the server appliance in quantity.

So basically, the SAKit doesn't create a windows powered OS, it enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to quickly create headless, fixed-function server appliance products based on the Microsoft Windows operating system.
The operating system used to create the server appliance product can be Windows "Server" , "Advanced Server" or "Windows Powered"...

Then there's the fact that the service packs for windows 2000 themselves have the files needed to update the Windows Powered operating system itself, which I might add also has the files
required for installing the operating system from a bootable CD, like dosnet.inf, txtsetup.sif, layout.inf & other such files required for a fresh install, why people choose to exclude that fact is beyond me...

txtsetup.sif

Others in the service packs

What I also find hard to believe is the fact that the details of a torrent regarding an ISO of it posted on another forum has a label that finishes in FPP, yet like Datacenter server, was only ever released by OEMs, ISVs & IHVs...
I started my search for this OS 12 years ago, all links led to OEMs only, & since the boot screen & other areas of branding only show when prepped by an OEM vendor, the FPP tag makes no sense at all...
& the theory of the Windows Powered CD as merely being the SAKit CD is even more far fetched given the FPP tag used on this torrent that's supposedly out there regarding this OS...

& a side note, there were betas of the SAKits...

Yeah, seems haters are always going to hate, whether they have a reason to or not...
I could speculate why in this reply, though it's not worth my time...
