  1. You can decompress to a install.wim though it might be larger Take note of the index of the particular OS version you'd like to install (in case the esd has many images therein) the number is what is inserted in the SourceIndex. Am choosing index 1 (Windows 7 Home Premium) From an ADMIN cmd prompt in same folder dism /export-image /SourceImageFile:install.esd /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:install.wim /Compress:max /CheckIntegrity I know with ESD it installs much faster so figuring this out might be needed.
  2. I recently needed to look at some .wims and I hate pasting the commands one by one so decided to update this for Win 10. Had a very good time figuring this out. All the things from Win 7/8 would not work to elevate. Try any dism command and it tell you need admin privileges. So I use nircmd.exe from Nirsoft. Right now only 64 bit. It will be easy to change for 32 bit. Let me know if you need help doing that. http://www.mediafire.com/file/8g6mozfe45a15ta/WIMrightclick__Install_Win10_64bit.zip ; 10/23/2016 ; Added reg scripts for Windows 10 with Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) for Windows 10 installed for 64 bit ; Windows ADK for Windows 10, version 1607 or 1511 ; Install with this command >> adksetup.exe /features OptionId.DeploymentTools /norestart /q /ceip off ; C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit is only 54MB doing this ; You need nircmd from Nirsoft http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html ; I copy nircmd.exe to C:\Windows
  3. Win 10 Running it after your script been applied several months everything was much faster applying all. Just done a fresh install without running your script first it gets some of the APPS but leaves a lot of APPS and gets some FAILED items about 48 things from 280 items guess that not too bad. Does seem to speed the system up each time though so that's good. Guess I need to show results to them Overall good find. Been having Inet trouble nearly a month right after trial that Sphinx but that wasn't it. Finally got the right Tech out here yesterday that fixed it.
  4. Decided to give it a test since I applied Noel script blackbird -scan --Blackbird does not currently support Redstone builds. To prevent any damage to your PC Blackbird will now exit.
  5. Noel script still works getting rid of the start garbage and Cortana/Edge. First thought was "sweet"
  6. Nope KB3176927 only updates 14393.0 to 14393.10 Can get Windows10Upgrade28084.exe 17mb from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12387/windows-10-update-history and it will update 1511 but it may be like a full install, I didn 't do it. I just used MediaCreationTool but if you are running 1511 it will download a 1511 version or did for me on 8/2. So I fired up a VM and put on a 14* ver and used MediaCreationTool Was disappointed, don't know why they forked these into 2 different versions 1511 and 14393 and in the end took away 1511 possibly. May go back and see what happens in a vm.
  7. Noel On the Sphinx Firewall when first installing there are 2 options. Do you check the 2nd option Enable Remote access and control? I'm not sure what it is I do select first and then tune to what I want and export later http://imgur.com/a/Rbo1h
  8. 1511 don't have a direct upgrade. I found an Windows10Upgrade28084.exe could install and do it so I just put on 14393.0 which upgraded to 14393.10. Ran script but had to reboot and run it twice Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Select Name, PackageFullName Name PackageFullName ---- --------------- Microsoft.BioEnrollment Microsoft.BioEnrollment_10.0.14393.0_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost_10.0.14393.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.14393.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy windows.immersivecontrolpanel windows.immersivecontrolpanel_6.2.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy Your remaining proisioned Apps: Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -Online | Select PackageName Press any key to continue . . .

  9. Your right and don't know how that happen. Then I forgot to update the metered connection block and it just installed OS Build 10586.494. Time for a full install install.esd in sources is dated 8/2/2016
  10. None, your script fly by so fast I seen the errors you described above, only 2. Candy Crush is one can right click on Start menu and do Uninstall anyway This is still much better than expected, last time it left quite a bit after a full install. I went ahead and updated my stock system with this release and another thing is it is not bringing back all the crapola Something you may add to script I started using something a couple months back where I block all updates even defender by setting my system to ethernet as metered. When it starts complaining I go look and see what it wants to update. I have to allow before it will download any updates. Echo To set Ethernet as metered, you'll need to change value of Ethernet to 2 but Windows will not allow you to change its Echo value as you wouldn't have required permissions. Echo.

  11.

  12. This was mine. Since the Ironkey is a secure drive it also lists the other 'drive H' after you unlock it. Delete them keys and all is fine.
  13. Follow that link I posted on the reg settings and you find No software needed REG it
  14. Nope and sure don't want another service running. I'd think it needed to check for updates also Well before using Never10 I had applied 2 reg settings found elsewhere. Started Never10 up on target Win 7 and it said I was good. Ok hmm. I set it back then reapplied. So is the only thing it is doing is setting these 2 settings? Don't know, didn't track Never10 as I would on my own PC but i'm already running the beast Anyways here are the 2 reg settings Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;http://www.zdnet.com/article/how-to-block-windows-10-upgrades-on-your-business-network-and-at-home-too/ ;Here's how to say no to the new version in 30 seconds or less, without installing third-party software. UPDATED 12-Mar-2016 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate] "DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX] "DisableGWX"=dword:00000001 EDIT: Course if you not Admin then maybe you need the Never10 to set these settings
  15. I used GWX and it failed. Let it actually install cause wife clicked something so it is not 100% Did use Steve thing this time on her's cause he been at this a lot longer, a lot lot lot lot longer. Imagine he just want to get it right and MS will change things we know that WTH ya mean there is no install just run Never 10 thats PORTABLE is it not? No installer
