That's how betas work, as they progress, they fix some bugs (But also add new ones). I think the solution provided by @Armando%20Technologies could work in the build you were initially referring to. Test the solution in the build 2296 and see if it works.
Windows XP build 2296 is the official Beta 1 build of Windows XP, which was released in multiple languages on 31 October 2000. However, out of the several language variants, only the Korean version is currently available. A Simplified Chinese version alongside a German version are known to exist, but they are currently lost and are thus unleaked. Similarly, the IA-64 compile was released on 3 November 2000 but as of 2023 it remains unleaked. 2b1af7f3a8
