    Robocopy "Skipped" Directories but they weren't

    Hi, Win 8.1 64Bit Pro I'm using RoboCopy to copy files to a different HDD's. (Once/If the copy has successfully completed, I delete the source files.) Anyway, the RC cmd is: RoboCopy "D:\Documentaries" "F:\Documentaries" /E /COPY:DAT /DCOPY:T /Z /MT:4 /R:1 /W:10...

    How to integrate drivers/software to a Windows 10 USB?

    NTLite: https://www.ntlite.com/ However, you have to convert the window ESD to a WIM 1st, there are instructions on their forum on how to do this.** The free version allows basic additions & changes. I used the free version to add the Intel network drivers to a new Win8.1 PC I built late...

    KB3075853 - Why so vague, Microsoft?

    Gort, You have exactly the same questions & suspicions that I was trying to find answers to ... and failed so far. I to would like to know if KB3075853 has anything to do with Win10 and like yourself, I have no intention to move to Win10 for at least the next 6 months. Oops ... typo, should be...

    Solved Block Windows 10 Upgrade on Win8.x & Win7 PC's

    Thanks Brink & Mooly ... it seems that the GWX app is more than simply a "notification" pgm. I had previously uninstalled KB3035583 & then MS re-released it so I have it hidden. I have downloaded the Disable_Get_Windows_10.reg file & will apply it to all my PC's. Thanks Muchly BazzaG...

    Solved Block Windows 10 Upgrade on Win8.x & Win7 PC's

    Hi, For a variety of reasons, such as, no WMC in Win10, I want to block or prevent Windows Update from offering to upgrade all of my PC's; at least in the short term, to Win10. I have 3 desktop PC's running Win8.1 Pro 64bit, 1 running Win7 Ultimate & a Surface Pro 3 running Win8.1 Pro 64bit...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Not unless Windows did a "system" backup itself & from my experience it causes too many other problems, given that a "system" backup is not really a proper backup. Personally I would only do a system restore in an emergency. However, I did a full system backup using Macrium Reflect before...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Oh dear, I thought I would never have to come back to this thread. For 11 months, almost to the day since I last did a full re-install of Windows 8.1.1 (6th June 2014), my PC has been sleeping just fine. Over that time in terms of hardware, networked devices, etc. nothing has changed. I can...

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    I'm not surprised that it's not just the personalisation features ... it's just that they were immediately obvious when the windows desktop opened after the install. As soon as I established a network; the default MS network drivers don't work for Intel network adapters, I activated windows.

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Thanks. I installed Win 8.1 from a WIMCT created ISO using the generic key but after installation I lost all the personalisation settings (screen colour, etc.) that I selected during the install. Couldn't change these until I activated windows; which it did without any issues. This is very...

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Thanks Brink & Kyhi. I purchased several retail copies of Windows 8.0 about 14 months ago, used 1 of 'em earlier this year, now using another.

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Hi, For Windows 8.1 ISO's that you could D/L *prior* to the new "Windows Installation Media Creation Tool" method you had to use a generic key for the installation & then activate windows with a Windows 8 key. Is this still true for installing Windows from ISO's created by the MS WIMCT or can...

    Solved Create An ISO with Install.wim Using Media Creation Tool

    BTW, I did rename install.esd to winpayload.esd prior to running your script.

    Solved Create An ISO with Install.wim Using Media Creation Tool

    The original install.esd file extracted from the latest ISO D/L'd from MS using Media Creation Tool. I converted this to install.wim & using NTLite added some missing drivers; in particular, the drivers for the Intel Network adapter and ONLY the extra drivers. I tried to create an ISO via...

    Solved Create An ISO with Install.wim Using Media Creation Tool

    Hi, Thanks for this but I'm afraid CreateWin didn't work for me. 1st DISM failed ... couldn't find MediaMeta.xml in ISOFOLDER. I added it & then restarted the script, which seemed to restart OK but then failed with access denied for everything that DISM was trying to copy/process. Eventually...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Hmm ... I'm now not sure if it was enabling 'Nearby Devcices' on my Sammy S4 or maybe it was and ALSO Google Chromecast. My daughter has a Chromecast that she uses on her TV to cast videos from her phone (another Sammy S4) or PC. I had the Google Chromecast extension installed on my PC for...
