    windows 8.1 x64

    Large GPT installer on 64GB usb stick


    Hi Everybody, I have the following task to complete:

    1. use a 64GB usb stick
    2. integrate all updates in the windows 8.1 x64 iso
    3. install the thing as UEFI/GPT.

    #3 requires fat32, which gives me headace: how can I create a fat32 partition on a 64GB stick?
    #2 creates the problem that the install.wim exceeds 4GB and has to be split. However I've read on multiple sites that the /split image command for dism doesn't work.

    Is there any RELIABLE (preferably Microsoft) solution to create a fat32 partition on a larger stick and chop up the install.wim?

    Sorry for the clumsy title, I see now the question landed in the GS topic, even though I submitted it to here: " Create a x64 Windows 8.1 UEFI install USB - Windows 8 Forums"

I've added task manager to my scheduled tasks at logon. Everywhere I google, they say to put the /min or -minimized arguments in it to launch it minimized, except neither option works for me. Task Manager launches, but just sits there on my desktop. Is there a new argument for minimized in...
Hi, Not sure if this is the right board, but I'm keen on accessing the aforementioned box directly rather going through task manager due to the run as admin check box, but I can't find the file location. I prefer using the run dialog usually to access apps because I could do without extra effort...
