  1. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Yes, it should be supported, but will require the command line ref option. There is no way to tell that these esd are not standalone ones. I did try it yesterday and today. I choose the fully unattended option. But maybe the problem is my poor Internet speed. Well it took some hours to download these 5 GB.
  2. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Hmm, wasn't able to download these UPP dumps without errors. Currently the -ref: cmd parameter is ignored in this case, but will be fixed in next version.
  3. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Hmm, right click on the unattend label and check/edit the xml if necessary.
  4. OldNewExplorer 1.1.8

    These problem, looks like you guy using old version of shellstyle.dll with Creators Update. Not all old themes are fully working with newer windows. Post same version infos!
  5. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Don't get it, what's wrong with setting computername in unattend.xml?
  6. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Disk management/diskpart uses SetVolumeMountPoint() API. I use just like imdisk, DefineDosDevice() API. Let's say it's like the subst.exe command. There were problems with the diskmgnt way back in the old XPPE days.
  7. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Oh, I see how this is going to end. Well devdevadev, better stick on the reboot forum. They have much better batch file skills than I have.
  8. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    What do you want with the drive letter, if you don't know it let WinNTSetup decide.
  9. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    You should use 1 syspart for both installations! And yes at some point you need to change the boot order with bcdedit.exe, to boot the second OS and continue it's setup. This will require basic batch file skills. There is not secret in how WinNTSetup detects the syspart drive. for MBR disk scheme there is only 1 active primary partion for EFI there is only 1 partition which have the PARTITION_SYSTEM_GUID guid. However it assigns the Z:\ as a dosdevice, so disk management or unelevated explorer will not show it.
  10. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Yes. Yes. Only, if you use the same syspart and install the newest system last.
  11. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4

    Yes, you can use a VHDX. But I don't know about about trim support. Microsoft is only talking about the new Hyper-V Generation 2 emulation that supports it. They did not mentioned native VHD(X) boot. VHD and VHDX use the same driver and it's the drivers job to tell the OS that VHD(X) is located inside a SSD. It should than pass through the trim command. So I would guess both or neither formats support trim.
  12. It are just the offset inside the ISO like jaclaz explained. I've made tool for that: ISO2Offset.7z
  13. Have added command line support for range downloads. GWT -range:8808448-9236127 -out:"X:\bootmgr" -title:"Download Win8.1 Bootmgr" -link:/download/B/9/9/B999286E-0A47-406D-8B3D-5B5AD7373A4A/9600.16384.WINBLUE_RTM.130821-1623_X86FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IRM_CENA_X86FREE_EN-US_DV5.ISOGetWaikTools.zip
  14. I would use curl and a Win8.1 Enterprise ISO. curl -o"bootmgr" -r 8808448-9236127 http://care.dlservice.microsoft.com/dl/download/B/9/9/B999286E-0A47-406D-8B3D-5B5AD7373A4A/9600.16384.WINBLUE_RTM.130821-1623_X86FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IRM_CENA_X86FREE_EN-US_DV5.ISO
