    Cheers KYHI. Installing Win7 again as we speak, I had installed the Enterprise evaluation before, which obviously expires, but I have a license for Ultimate. The installer was being problematic and asking for drivers, so tried the Enterprise and it had done the same thing, then I installed via your PE with WinNTSetup and all was fine. But now I need an actual licensed copy on there, not just an evaluation

    Cheers to the esd-wim converter as well. I was using winreducer's esd-wim converter before, but surely yours is more efficient.

    Thanks again

    Haha yes since this laptop is brand new i'm slowly setting it up to my specification... This includes (for the moment) triple booting 8.1 (Core) , 7 , and Win 10 TP.

    I have a retail Ultimate Win7 license, but the installer was giving me issues about a cd/dvd driver (my laptop has no cd/dvd drive so ??) , then tried Ultimate on a USB stick instead of my USB dvd drive and it was the same, so tried the Enterprise installer and it was the same. Eventually just used your PE with WinNT Setup to get it installed, successfully might I add, (The Windows 7 installer just hates my new laptop) but forgot that 7 enterprise was still on the USB, not Ultimate, so back to square one LOL.

Hi, I recently changed to Win 8.1 (x64) and for some reason the OS is not recognizing my phone or my tablet (both have MTP interface). Apparently the drivers (MTP & ADB) are correctly installed, I see both of them on the device manager with no errors, and I can even connect through ADB. Also, in...
