  2. WOF_Compress_x64.exe Version 3.3 is working OK in Win10XPE made according to Win10_Install.pdfand in ChrisPE Environment. Can you give Link for the PE that you are using ?
  3. Booting from USB and Fast Windows Setup and Automatic Install of all drivers is by far best supported in Windows 10 but in other aspects it can be the worst .... Windows 8 User interface and UEFI booting and Setting the dirty bit of all NTFS drives in case of boot problem was the worst ever experienced

For the bootmgr x64 versions of january and april I got failure of setup for install in VHD of Win 7/8 x64 and Win10x86 In MBR mode booting with bootmgr x64 version 29-04-2020 (1909 update) then there is a mismatch with booting Win10x86 VHD during Setup. Normally WinNTSetup will update bootmgr file (by using bcdboot ?) so that it corresponds to Windows to be installed. The bootmgr versions since 2020 refuse replacement by bcdboot.exe The issue is solved by Microsoft with bootmgr of version 2004 that also is not updated by bcdboot, but allows to Install 7x64 Or 10x86 version in VHD without the reported error.
  6. Thanks for the info on using msoobe.exe to fix the annoying Windows setup error. I tried to use msoobe.exe to fix the error but it did not work for me I have hope that 2004 version of bootmgr can prevent the error .... In any case that worked for me.
  7. The bootmgr files released since 2020 silently fail to be updated by bcdboot command. For the bootmgr x64 versions of january and april I got failure of setup for install in VHD of Win 7/8 x64 and Win10x86 The problem is fixed by Microsoft with the latest release of bootmgr x64 of Win 10 version 2004 This Win10x64 bootmgr file of 11-05-2020 as tested by me allows Install of 7x64 and Win10x86 in VHD booting in MBR BIOS mode.
  8. Thank you for sharing your experience regarding Win 10 2004. I decided also to stay at 1909 until BSOD problems are solved ....
  9. Plus: - Undocumented nice feature for Unattended Install where LocalAccount = UserName FullName = RegisteredOwner Organization = RegisteredOrganization Thanks for this handy feature Another topic, I have serious BSOD problems with Windows 10x64 version 2004 as described in BSOD Crashes Windows 10 since May Update What do you think about it ?
  10. Tested and OK for Capture followed by Apply of Win10x64 version 2004 The nice thing is that Win10x64 2004 is booting without the need to use first Safe Mode as was experienced previously.
  11. GWTx64.exe is working OK now in Win10x64 version 2004 Thanks for fixing

Ventoy Hidden EFI Drive on USB must be made visible - In Windows 10x64 use DiskPart > list vol and than select vol of EFI (in my case nr 14) - assign - EFI drive is mounted as e.g. Q: - Also possible is: After booting with Win10XPE from RAMDISK the Hidden EFI Drive is auto mounted 3. Copy folders and files from Ventoy EFI drive to folder e.g. V_EFI on your harddisk 4. In Windows Explorer Format Ventoy and EFI drive with NTFS FileSystem 5. In Windows Disk Management Remove Ventoy EFI partition 6. Reduce Size of Ventoy NTFS drive by 100 MB 7. In unused space Create New simple Volume with Label EFI and Size 130 MB and Format with FAT32 FileSystem 8. Copy folders and files from V_EFI folder back to your new created EFI partition 9. Modify or Replace on Ventoy EFI drive file grub\grub.cfg as indicated above 10. Copy some Linux ISO file and / or Win10XPE_x64.ISO and WinPE.iso file and folder Win10XPE with WIM file to Ventoy NTFS drive 11. Use UEFI_MULTI_x64.exe in Win10x64 OS - Select EFI drive as Boot Drive and Ventoy drive as System drive 12. Use UEFI_MULTI_x64.exe in Win10x64 OS - Select PE WIM e.g. boot.wim or Win10XPE.wim file Or Win10x64.vhd as Boot Image file 13. Click GO to make MultiBoot Ventoy Drive booting with WIM and VHD file in Windows BootManager and booting with Grub4dos Menu and Grub2 Menu
  15. Sure I know, but the given Manual can be helpful and is NOT general but specific on using WinNTSetup A complete description with ALL details and Screenshots just for WinNTSetup will be better of course.
  16. How to use WinNTSetup x64 and ISO file for Installation of Windows 10 x64 in VHD or partition of SSD harddisk Manual: Win10_Install.pdf Subjects like Download ISO, Create VHD, use Tweaks, Unattended Install, Add Drivers and Capture WIM are described and illustrated with Screenshots.
  17. Update USB_FORMAT-41 and UEFI_MULTI-41 plus the Addon-glim-agFM files - USB_FORMAT - Make PE-Boot-WIM entry in Boot Manager Menu for booting with boot.wim file from RAMDISK - After Format Drive simply copy your PE boot.wim file to USB Boot drive - USB_FORMAT - Make Win10x64.vhd VHD entry in Boot Manager Menu for booting with Win10x64.vhd file as FILEDISK - After Format Drive simply copy and rename as Win10x64.vhd file in USB NTFS drive of Portable SSD - VHD FILEDISK option can only be added for Fixed USB Drives and Windows 10 Or Win10XPE as operating system - The iso folder of Grub2 Live ISO Multiboot is moved to the root of USB Boot Drive instead of being a subfolder of EFI as implemented in SuperUEFIinSecure Boot Disk v3 Release The reason is that iso folder inside EFI is a source of trouble for booting Linux ISO files - Simply Copy Your Linux ISO file to iso\YourLinux folder - Update of a1ive Grub2 File Manager to v7.1.2 - Update of Manual Win10_Install.pdf - In Win10x86 Or Win8.1 x86 OS - Support for UEFI x86 with file efi\boot\bootia32.efi from firmware file Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi Download: USB_FORMAT and UEFI_MULTI Manual: Win10_Install.pdf
  18. Hallo ChrisR Thanks for your help and to give an alternative site at GitHub for download of Win10XPE (the best PE ever made)
  19. Thanks for your answer. Let us hope that someone (reading this) can and will take care to bring Win10XPE back online again.
  20. @JFX The website of TheOven is down, so that Win10XPE is not available for download. Can you help to bring Win10XPE back online again ?
  21. Update USB_FORMAT-31 and UEFI_MULTI-97 plus the Addon-glim-agFM files - Added Grub2Win for booting in BIOS mode with GRUB2 Live ISO Multiboot menu for a lot of Linux ISO files like with Grub2 in UEFI Secure mode - Added Knoppix runtimelivecd.iso support for GRUB2 Live ISO Multiboot menu in BIOS and UEFI Secure mode - Update of a1ive Grub2 File Manager Download: USB_FORMAT and UEFI_MULTI

  23. Update of Manual: - Added Section: How to make USB Drive booting with various Linux ISO versions in BIOS and in UEFI Secure mode UEFI_MULTI supports three ways to Boot Linux ISO files: 1. Boot from USB straight with Grub4dos menu entry in BIOS mode Or with Grub2 menu entry in UEFI Secure mode - method is fast and reliable menu entries are already available e.g. for linuxmint.iso - runtimelivecd.iso - knoppix.iso - ubuntu.iso - ubuntu-19.10-desktop-amd64.iso 2. Boot from USB with a1ive Grub2 File Manager, which is a blackbox that enables to select Linux ISO - available in BIOS and UEFI Secure mode 3. Boot from USB with AIO Boot - previous Integration of Linux ISO generates Grub4dos and Grub2 menu entries Method 2 and 3 are useful in case menu entry for method 1 is not (yet) available, but otherwise method 1 is preferred Download: USB_FORMAT and UEFI_MULTI
