  1. Can you Add a Tweak so that Password never Expires for LocalAccount UserName as defined in Unattend Installation ? After using WinNTSetup I normally Open Admin Command Window and give command: wmic UserAccount where Name='UserName' set PasswordExpires=False Without this command then Password would Expire which is unwanted.
  2. Ok, I will check this and report about it later and try to find a solution.
  3. That FAT32 Size Option is Unhidden when you use Windows 10 or 11 as Operating System and the Option is Hidden in Windows 8 or 7 Operating System that don't support 2 partitions on Removable Devices. So I suggest you to use Windows 10 x64 or 11 x64 as Operating System.

  8. MinWin Install with Printer and Scanner Enabled in DrvStore_Inf.txt works OK, when Printer is Connected AFTER Install. Bluetooth Audio Device Added AFTER Install works OK, but Bluetooth cannot be Selected as Playback Device Can Print LibreOffice Document. I should say everything works except Selection of Bluetooth as Audio Playback Device
  9. Hidden Option - Left-Click on "Mode:" region to get the blue arrows - Left-click on blue arrows to select Profile, normally Default is used
  10. WiFi Connect is working OK in WinNTSetup 5.2.2 - Bluetooth Add Device now Failed - DrvStore_Inf.txt adjusted to Add Printer + Scanner - Setup Failed in Getting Devices Ready ... Froozen ==
  11. Following @JFX and instructions of @alacran and using Win10_2004_English_x64.iso as Source I can report now: - WiFi available Networks are shown, but Unable to Connect to WiFi - notepad++ and Paint working OK - LibreOffice does not work for me with modded SySWoW.txt same error as before - Working OK now thanks to alacran - Bluetooth can Add Device, but Unable to Select as Playback Device - Printer - cannot Add Printer - Set Default App for mp3 works when using Open with .... Select to Always use Checkbox and then Portable VLC program - Result Icon = VLC and Double-click works
  12. After Connect with PENetwork it is still the same: Does Not show available WiFi Networks (on taskbar WiFi icon Or in Network settings interface) May be better then to build-in StartIsBack so that it works straight for the user. What is download Link for your Source ? Then I can test here too. I am using Win10_2004_English_x64.iso
  13. Min_Win is VERY GOOD VHD UsedSize = 1 GB and LZX WIM = 757 MB - VHD has 11245 Files and 1770 Folders Where I need three programs (WinNTSetup + Win_Debloat + Reboot + Win_Reduce, say 5 minutes for VHD with 1.5 GB UsedSize), your WinNTSetup 5.2.1 does everything in 30 seconds - I used VHD_WIMBOOT LZX Capture and Apply to Reduce the UsedSize from 1.5 to 1 GB Not yet Perfect: - Portable Apps Notepad++ and LibreOffice Fail (see picture) - WiFi Connect only works via PENetwork - Icon on Taskbar works, but does not show available Networks - Start Menu Items cannot be used - Menu disappears with Flash - Default Apps jpg PhotoViewer works OK, but mp3 pdf doc docx xls xlsx don't work e.g. mp3 does not get VLC Icon and double-click does not work
  14. OK then skip PowerShell first and focus on WiFi Network Connect and the Taskbar Icons Interface for Network Connect and Sound Settings. That is indeed far more important functionality for a Mini Windows.
  15. @JFX For testing MinWin I have used as Source Win10_2004_English_x64.iso - 19041_US PowerShell is nice but indeed Not essential for Mini-10x64. However, it does not take too much space.
  16. My first experiments with the MinWin Mode gives a UsedSize of about 1 GB and 10.800 files. These figures are really very small and it is indeed an impressive result, but there are some issues in functionality. Apparently my WiFi Network Driver is removed, which I miss, but that can be fixed in the Default Profile Settings. Taskbar Icons Interface does Not work for Network and Sound Settings and I think that must work (may be missing SystemApps and WindowsApps). Sound and LAN Network are working OK. Windows Photo Viewer does not work but I can use Paint instead. PowerShell fails and after trying to fix it in Default Profile the Start Menu is instable and PowerShell does not work. It is inspiring and good to know what extra files and folders might be removed from our Mini-10x64.vhd. EDIT: WiFi Driver is Fixed , but WiFi fails, Unable to Select Network (also Taskbar Icon Interface does Not work for Network and Sound Settings) EDIT: Source is Win10_2004_English_x64.iso - 19041_US

    It must be a False Positive. Thank you for giving Info about Detection by Malwarebytes. It will be very nice if you can tell Malwarebytes to ignore it. Tokener is a well-known fellow of reboot.pro forum and I trust his .NET Framework Enumerator VirusTotal Malwarebytes and MS Defender have no problem with System_Info-53.zip
  21. Update Win_Reduce_Trusted-50 Download: from wimb GitHub - Win_Reduce_Trusted-50 Download File E = Encrypted PassWord = bootwimb Manual: VHD_WIMBOOT.pdf - Download: Win10_21H2 x64 ISO and Win11 ISO from Microsoft - Added Windows Update Blocker - Wub folder in \Add_Folders_Files\Port_Apps folder of Win_reduce - Shortcut on Desktop to launch Wub_x64.exe added in \Add_to_UserPath\Desktop folder - Shortcut on Desktop to launch Network - ncpa.cpl - Easy Switch On / Off Network Adapter - PS.exe is running now as Admin so that all apps in PStart Menu are Running as Admin - Added Run_System_Info_x64.exe in \Add_to_UserPath\Desktop folder Run_System_Info_x64.exe will Find and Run \System_Info\System_Info_x64.exe on Any Drive For this purpose your System_Info-53 folder must be in Root of Any Drive and must be Renamed as System_Info First time you need to boot Mini-10x64.vhd as FILEDISK and be sure there is No Network Connection possible. Then you need on Desktop launch Wub_x64.exe to Disable Windows Update and Protect this Setting. It is now safe to connect to Network using Enable WhiteList Off setting in Firewall App Blocker. Boot Mini-10x64.vhd as FILEDISK or from RAMDISK and Connect to Internet and FireFox pages appear OK without an increase of the Mini-10x64 UsedSize

    Half of what atmzzrSystemCheck is doing, is available already in System_Info. e.g. .NET Framework Info, System Info and DirectX are giving similar info. A problem is that atmzzrSystemCheck is in conflict with Security Software, e.g. SmartScreen.
