  11. WimGAPI Mode Compact:XPRESS4K results wrongly in XPRESS8K (X) Compression, whereas wimlib is giving XPRESS4K (x) Also WOF_Compress can analyse WOF Status and Compression Algorithm of Compact files.

  14. 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 ?
  15. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Thank you for sharing your experience regarding Win 10 2004. I decided also to stay at 1909 until BSOD problems are solved ....
  21. 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 ?
  22. 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.
  23. GWTx64.exe is working OK now in Win10x64 version 2004 Thanks for fixing
  24. In Win 10x64 version 2004 then GWT64.exe Failed to download necessary files whereas GWT.exe is working OK
