  1. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4 / 3.8.8 BETA1

    Thanks JFX for providing your precious time... t's looking WinPE already assign drive letter to Boot Partition (System Reserved). So how I can automatically detect and get Drive Letter of 'Boot Partition' (System Reserved) using cmd in exactly the same way WinNTSetup do ? Please help me to automatically get Drive Letter of 'Boot Partition' (System Reserved) using cmd with WinNTSetup approach if possible... Thanks & Regards...
  2. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4 / 3.8.8 BETA1

    Should I use following code in order to make automatic Dual boot of Win 7 and Win 10 ? :DualBoot_Win_7_10 set XML=%PTN2%\_ISO\WINDOWS\INSTALLS\CONFIGS\SMART_CHOCO.xml if exist %SYSPART% format %SYSPART% /Q /Y /V:"Windows 7" %WinNTSetup% NT6 -source:%PTN2%\sources\install.esd -WimIndex:2 -syspart:%SYSPART% -tempdrive:%SYSPART% -unattend:"%XML%"-ForceUnsigned -drivers:"%PTN2%\driver_Win7x86" -Sysletter:C -RunAfter:"set_7_usb_boot.cmd C:\windows" -OEM:%PTN2%\sources -setup -reboot if exist %SYSPART1% format %SYSPART1% /Q /Y /V:"Windows 10" %WinNTSetup% NT6 -source:%PTN2%\sources\install.esd -WimIndex:6 -syspart:%SYSPART% -tempdrive:%SYSPART1% -unattend:"%XML%"-Sysletter:C -OEM:%PTN2%\sources -setup -reboot goto :EOF I think after restart 'Win 10' will continue remaining installation phases till preparing the desktop. After reaching at the desktop of 'Win 10', I will have to auto boot to 'Win 7' entry in order to complete remaining installation phases of 'Win 7'. So how I can set to auto boot to a particular BCD *(Win 7) entry after auto-restart of 'Win 10' ? Is there any command line way to auto boot to a BCD entry after restart ? bcdedit /default {Windows 7 identifier} OR May be after reaching at the desktop of 'Win 10', I should set 'Win 7' boot entry as default OS using command line and then just restart to auto continue remaining installation phases of 'Win 7' ?Suppose I have Dual boot of 'Win 7' and 'Win 10'. And I am booted to 'Win 10' desktop. So how can I automatically get 'Windows 7 identifier' using command line ? So that I can make 'Windows 7' as default OS. And then just restart to continue remaining installation phases of 'Win 7'...?? How 'WinNTSetup' automatically detect 'syspart' drive if exist and assign BootDest=Z: (while in Disk Mgmt there is no drive letter set for 'System Reserved'partition ?). I also want to set BootDest=Z: if 'System Reserved' partition exist otherwise I will use BootDest=%OSPart1% How 'Search...' button dialog box is different from normal File Explorer ? How WinNTSetup can see 'System Reserved' partition as Z: while normal File Explorer and Disk Mgmt have not assigned any drive letter to 'System Reserved' partition ? What is secret trick you have used here ? Please help me to understood this concept ...
  3. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4 / 3.8.8 BETA1

    Hi...JFX I want to run a 'WinNTSetup' script within from WinPE10 which will install 'Win 7' to %SYSPART% partition and 'Win 10' to %SYSPART1% one after another without booting to WinPE again. I mean I want to autorun 'AutoDualBoot.cmd' so that it will make complete Dual Boot of 'Windows 7' and 'Windows 10' without any furthe user action !!! Is it possible using WinNTSetup command line ? Does 'WinNTSetup' support installing two OSes in two different partitions of a Disk one after another without booting to WinPE again ? Can I make automatic Dual Boot of 'Win 7' and 'Win 10' using 'WinNTSetup' based batch file ? Regards..

  6. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    OMG, It was Univeral Watermark Disabler which causes crashing.........Thanks for Tip...Now It's works perfectly.... Can you please allow us to enable Bottom Left Corner to open 'Start Screen'.

  7. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    I am using Win 10 Build 10162. I tried both Beta 2 and Beta 3 but both crash the Desktop and Taskbar badly.........Is there any issue ?
  8. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    First Million of Thanks and Regards for 'StartIsBack++' and your Hard Work..... It will be better if you also allow us to choose between 'StartScreenIsBack' and 'Win 10 Start Menu' along side your 'StartIsBack++'. By this way we can enjoy best of all Start Menus with the help of your awesome tool. And we can use either of following combination according to our mood. 1- 'StartIsBack++' and 'StartScreenIsBack' 2- 'StartIsBack++' and 'Win 10 Start Menu' Thanks in Advance

    Hi.. I had successfully tested both 'WTG + VHDX' and 'WTG + WIMBoot + VHDX' configuration of 'Win 8.1 U1' by using 'WinNTSetup'. It works perfectly. But I could not test it for 'Win 8.1 U3' till now. Can anybody plz also confirm both 'WTG + VHDX' and 'WTG + WIMBoot + VHDX' configuration for 'Win 8.1 U3' ? But It's looking that either of the above configuration is not working for 'Windows 10' till now........? Regards....

    Hi 'JFX' I have downloaded '9860.0.141008-2044.fbl_release_clientpro_ret_x86fre_en-us_4268ed97873110ab801beb19b3f5016090623c7c.esd' from MS Server and then Decrypted with esd-decrypter-v4c. After that create Complete ISO with boot.wim and complete 2,5gb install.wim file. It's looking that something is wrong with 'WinNTSetup v.3.7.2' because it does not allow me to create 'WIMBoot' of 'Windows 10 Build 9860' while It successfully work if I install 'Windows 10 Build 9860' to either Hard Disk or Virtual Hard Disk (VHD). But when I choose 'WIMBoot' option then every time It give following error while 'WIMBoot' was working perfect in 'Windows 10 Build 9841' . Error Code: 0xc0000001 Please help me....Why I got above error whenever I choose 'WIMBoot' ? Regards....

    OK...'JFX' Sorry for disturbing you too much.......... As you said earlier that 'Hibernate' does not work if booting from 'Microsoft Native VHD'. But what if we boot Windows within from 'Raw Hard Disk Image' or 'Raw Partition Image' either via 'EasyBCD NeoSmart Bootloader' or 'Grub4dos' ? Can you please tell me how to create 'Raw Hard Disk Image' and 'Raw Partition Image'. I don't know about how to create these Raw Images. Actually till now I was using either your 'WinNTSetup v3.7' or 'Bootice v1.33' in order to create VHD Images but none of them allow to create Raw Images........ So please suggest me a good tool/method in order to create 'Raw Hard Disk Image' and 'Raw Partition Image'. Sorry once again for my stupid questions...... Thanks in Advance....

    http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/A_8951-Boot-from-VHD.html Following Point is described in above Site under Tips, Gotchas, and FYIs- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ In case of VHD booting Hibernation is disabled, so you cannot hibernate your laptop. However, if you expect to be in one given install regularly, you may be able to hibernate by placing that installation directly on the hard drive and putting subsequent alternate installations in VHDs. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I could not properly understand exact meaning of above para. Can you please explain above para in more simple way.... Could above point may be useful in my case ? Regards..

    What may be the reason behind disabling 'Hibernate' if booting from native VHD by Windows ? I think 'WinNTSetup v3.7' should show 'Enable Hibernate' checkbox under 'Tweaks' instead of 'Disable Hibernate' checkbox. So that we can 'Enable Hibernate' if booting is performed from VHD by Windows. Otherwise there is no meaning of 'Disable Hibernate' checkbox if booting is going to be performed from native VHD by Windows. If possible then please replace 'Disable Hibernate' checkbox with 'Enable Hibernate' checkbox under 'Tweaks' if booting from native VHD by Windows. Is it possible to implement following configuration ? http://reboot.pro/topic/20097-is-there-any-way-to-enable-hibernate-in-dual-vhdvhdx-booting-of-win-10-tp/#entry187946 Thanks & Regards.....

    Hi 'JFX'..... Thanks for useful info........... I prefer Dual Boot of latest Windows OS (Win10TP) but I don't want to use two Partitions for two OSes. I want to keep all Installation files and folders of Both OS in a single partition. It's why I using 'WIMBoot + VHDX'. I am using 'VHDX' because it allow me to keep two OSes in a single partition. And If one OS is corrupted then I re-install it within form second OS and vice-versa. And there is no need to format two Partitions again and again. And It very comfortable for me to just delete a 'VHDX' file in order to remove a OS completely without formatting a whole partition. And Before deleting 'VHDX' file I can cut-paste my Imp. Data within fro 'VHDX' to the root of same Partition which contains 'VHDX'. And By this way I don't have backup my Imp. Data to any other Storage Device. And After re-installation of Windows within 'VHDX'. I reverse the cut-paste process. As I am using tetra boot of 'Mac OS X' , 'Win 10 TP' , 'Win X TP' and 'Ubuntu 14.10'. So I want to keep minimum number of partition in my Hard Disk. You mean 'VHDX' require/consume more size in order to hold WINDOWS? If 'Yes' , then what about 'VHD' or any other 'Virtual Disk Drive' ? Does 'VHD' also require more size ? I can not compromise with 'Hibernate' feature so what should I do so that I can keep two Windows OS in one partition along with WIMBoot ? Is there any solution ? I have only 3GB RAM. So Will it be safer to disable 'pagefile.sys' in my Case ? or not ? Please suggest me a trick/method by which I can keep two WIMBooted OS within same partition with 'Hibernate' features.... Thanks & Regards....
