    How to access disk and folders in Windows 10?

    @Roffen Right click on desktop, select Personalise, find themes and look carefully on top right and there is an option for add icons on desktop. I think location may change depending on Pro, Home or update version (as all does on 10).

    There was a fix from MS for this: MicrosoftFixit50688.msi not easily available anymore, But I found it here.

    Windows 7 and Windows10 together, adding Linux

    @cannie Let me suggest you to include on your collection of tools BootIce (available on x86 & x64) Link http://www.ipauly.com/ On MBR partitioned disks, Grub4dos and BootIcel is what I have always used for creating my multiboot environments. About grub4dos I prefer 046a (this do not require contiguos file to direct boot [not from RAM] an ISO from internal or USB drives) last version: http://dl.grub4dos.chenall.net/grub4dos-0.4.6a-2018-07-01.7z (516 Kb). In fact I have booted from my WinPE ISO files even having 4 fragments. Congratulations you have a very nice thread here and very well explained for beginners, keep the good work. Your friend alacran
  5. @Tripredacus For Backup/Restore and also install new MBR to hard disks you may use BootIce, there is a 32 and a 64 bits version. Totally portable (runs on WinPE x86 and x64). Also can be used in Commandline.

    Thanks Jaclaz for attaching the file, by the way using the resolved link in your last post (http://ericksystem.weebly.com/uploads/1/1/0/3/11039286/repair_this_1.0.zip ) also can't find the server.

    Windows 7 and Windows10 together, adding Linux

    @cannie I always got a message Server ericksystem.weebly.com not found on Firefox 61.01 and also on Internet Explorer 11, I'm on Win7 x64. Could you please upload it to an alternative free storage site? I already disabled Avast AV and firewall (Firewall App Blocker 1.6) and retry but same thing. This may be caused for something else blocking that address on my side. Thanks in advance.

    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    You may integrate the Update Pack to your selected install image index or all if you want (it takes long time for all indexes) on your ISO in a single run, see: http://forum.oszone.net/post-2609527-2478.html (Use Google translate to read it in your own language). Download Link: http://files.simplix.ks.ua/boss911/UP7Integrator.7z This way you only apply the pack once and not every install, but you may also apply the more recent pack on line after installing your December/2017 updated ISO if you want, and it will only apply the required updates (not the 178 updates), taking only a few minutes to run it. And control Spectre and Meltdown mitigations patchs using InSpectre: https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm alacran

    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    You may download and install Simplix UpdatePack7R2 v17.12.15(x86/x64) from Dec/15th/2017. This pack do not contain telemetry updates and this Dec. update do not contain any updates related to Meltdown and Spectre yet (they started on Jan. 2018) , so no performance impact.

    Topic WinNTSetup is not working fine

    @Tripredacus That may be the cause of lost info, thanks for your answer, I didn't see that post from June 7 before, sorry for the inconvenience.
  13. I think there is something wrong on topic: As you can see it shows page 114 as last page and last post from Jan 29th 2018, but I'm totally sure there are more pages and posts after this. Maybe the topic is too long now for forum software, Could a moderator check and fix this please? Thanks in advance alacran

    What's "the best" browser for Win-7 32-bit?

    Yes, the x64 version has been working very fine for me on 7 x64, I assume x86 version will be fine too as Stefan43 said. Link for last version (x86 & x64) for all OS's and languages: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
