  2. Thanks Byte, does it also come with Uninstaller? ~DP
  3. Also here is the guide section for Wintookit from Wincert.net if you decide to go that route.http://www.wincert.net/forum/forum/192-win-toolkit-guides/ ~DP
  4. Yes your right it's way to long, IE kept crashing and freezing, you need to repost with a spoiler tag. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+do+a+spoiler+tag ~DP
  5. I Second that motion!, I am perfectly happy with my present dual boot setup with Windows 7 and 8.1 and see absolutely no need to jump ship for now just for the sake of having the newest OS. ~DP
  6. I have not done a ua install of W10 yet but normally I just specify the image name of the OS from the wim and add it to the image install section then value, here is example of 8 WMC that works for me. <!--SELECT OS--> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallFrom> <MetaData wcm:action="add"> <Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key> <Value>Windows 8 Pro with Media Center</Value> </MetaData> </InstallFrom> </OSImage> </ImageInstall>
  7. removed as non test related.. ~DP
  8. Good info guys, so bottom line is that you can't do a "offline activation" (unless Microsoft has made a provision for a phone activation) but must have a active working internet connection, similar to Office 2010 and above to connect to the MS servers. ~DP
  9. Also if you don't want to mess with the imageres.dll file you could just add your own Windows 7 or custom desktop icons to that .theme file as your default as well. ~DP
  10. Here is a batch script to "Stop the Windows 10 Upgrade Nag" credit: http://www.intelliadmin.com/ ~DP Echo off:: Notes: Stop 10 Nag.cmd - Right-Click and Run as admin..:: Remove the "Get Windows Now" folder from update if found..taskkill.exe /F /IM "gwx.exe"takeown /a /r /skipsl /d Y /f "%windir%\System32\GWX" && icacls "%windir%\System32\GWX" /grant administrators:Frobocopy "%windir%\System32\GWX" "%windir%\System32\GWX_Old" /Ermdir /s /q "%windir%\System32\GWX":: Disable "Get Windows 10 Upgrade Nag" message..reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx /v DisableGwx /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
  11. Yes its always been the case to: 1. Install Only on a test machine 2. Install Only if you know what the heck your doing and don't wine if you don't and it's not working. Sure there will be a installer in the future for those that don't want to deal with the manual install method.. ~DP
  12. That was one of his custom Theme Atlas files for build 10041, which one is any ones best guess. http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/170233-aero-glass-themeatlas/ ~DP
  13. If you have a Working .xml file now perhaps you can post it here so that it may help others with similar issues. ~DP
  14. Perhaps this script from code project may help as well. http://www.codeproject.com/Tips/191892/How-to-find-current-location-based-on-the-IP-addre ~DP
  15. How about this one I've been using? Looks better, just wish we could get rid of that title bar text glow. ~DP
