  1. I'm not sure if what I am asking is possible, but I would like to create a recovery flash drive that will boot on PCs that have either UEFI or legacy set in the BIOS. I currently have a recovery flash that I created with WinNTSetup that has W10 installed in a VHD. The system boots and runs well if the hardware BIOS is set for legacy. The other day I tried to boot from a laptop that was set up for UEFI and the flash gets ignored and there is no way to boot it unless I go into the BIOS and set it to legacy. Not all BIOS implementations allow a legacy mode, so is there a way to avoid ha
  2. @JFX I keep forgetting what some of the WinNTSetup ini values do or mean. I assume they are related to the command line switches. Are these explained anywhere or could you briefly explain the different values below? [WinNT6\READY] OEM=\sources\$OEM$ BCD= (0, 1, 2, ?, ?) BootSect=(0, 1, 2, ?, ?) Win7USBBoot=(0. 1, ?, ?) AddOtherOS=(0 ,1, ?, ?) Also where is the wimlib.ini supposed to be put if you enable using wim
  3. Oooops. I didn't bother to hit OK and kept using Cancel.
  4. I would like to use WinNTSetup to install Win7 on a VHD that was defined for a VM in Oracle's VirtualBox. Is there a way to do this? If I mount the vhd on my local system, WinNTSeup wont' let me use the same drive letter for the boot drive. Seems like VBOX supports booting from a VHD.
  5. I noticed up to 3.9.1 the enabled=0 in the diskpart directory was the default and now it is enabled=1. What happens if you accidentally do a CTRL+SHIFT+D when the GUI is active?
  6. Okay, that's what I was thinking, but by chance I thought there might be a different set off system icons for the notification area. I just hate the big "^" icon when not showing all icons.
  7. @JFX Link in OP indicates Get Waik Tool files no longer present. The latest version I have is 18.04. Is that the latest?
  8. @JFX Does the Disable the new taskbar icons of Windows 10 setting give you the old icons back? Can you post the reg entry for this so I can try it out to see what it does without having to install?
  9. Oh boy, I did not realize some of this stuff could be done from the command line. I never thought of using F1 from the GUI. Thanks for the link and the command line pointer. That is better and easier for me.
  10. Thanks, I did stumble upon vhdtool and this is what I ended up doing to clone the WinNTSetup VHD creation because I need a different volume label than what WinNTSetup sets. Are these the correct commands to use? Also, do you know where I can find the vhdtool that includes the /repair option. I haven't been able to find it yet. vhdtool /create <filename> <size> /quiet select vdisk attach vdisk automount disable attributes disk clear readonly create partition primary online volume attributes volume clear readonly Active format assign
  11. @JFX Do you use diskpart from WinNTSetup when creating a VHD with the instant creation option? When I run diskpart create vdisk file="d:\Win2Go ltsb.vhd" maximum=16384 it takes longer than the instant creation option via WinNTSetup although both VHDs seem to have the same properties and size. What commands do you use with the instant creation option? Thanks for any infos...
  12. Sorry, I I missed that. I saw (Recommended) and did not take notice of the option below.
  13. I noticed that when you create a VHD with WinNTSetup, it does a full format which takes forever using a USB flash drive. Is it also possible to do a quick format when using the VHD create option?
  14. The usb was formatted with the normal format and the rest was done by winntsetup which I used to created the VHD etc. I also let it updated the boot record (which may be the problem). The usb was clean before I started with WinNT.
