  1. Features: - Install Windows 2k/XP/2003/2008/2012/Vista/7/8.x x86/x64 - Practically runs even on the most minimalistic WinPE - Choose able drive letter for the new Windows installation - Install Windows also if nlite/vlite has remove winnt32.exe/setup.exe - Integrate Drivers: normal PNP and Textmode Drivers also - patch uxtheme to allow unsigned Themes - Some tweaks - Support "Windows to Go" for Windows 7 and later installs - Supports WimBoot option for Windows 8.1 Update 1 - supports all current WIM files: WIM/SWM (XPRESS / LZX / XPRESS HUFFMAN = Wimboot compression) - supports unencrypted ESD files (LZMS compressed WIM) Not Supported: - No Windows embedded version (this includes WinFLP) - No Installation onto USB disk *New* only Windows 7 and later - No upgrades of existing installations As some may know the last version 1.5 had only Support for Win 2000/XP/2003. Fujianabc present an very easy approach to install Windows 7 NT 6.x fast installer basically it's simply applying the windows image from install.wim and generating the boot files. He also discovered that the drive letter of a Windows 7 image can be (opposed to Vista) easily changed. So I have added that way of installing to WinNTSetup. For the driver installation: Every driver added in NT6.x windows will be added to the driver store. So it's not recommended to add countless driver, but rather more really required ones. NT5.x massstorage driver integration is possible thanks to Mr dUSHA powerful MSSTMake.exe tool To the Unattend option: It's possible to use an unattend.xml to run the Setup unattended. But as the actual WinPE Setup Phase isn't effective in that way of install, all Winpe related settings inside the unattend.xml won't be applied. Ini config file It's possible to save all GUI-settings to a ini file: push Ctrl + S to save all settings to an ini. push Ctrl + L to load all settings from an ini. A WinNTSetup.ini file in the same dir as the app itself will be loaded automatically at startup. It also can be selected via command line: WinNTSetup.exe /cfg:"C:\mysettings.ini" more command line options To install Windows in a VHD file: - requires Windows 7 as OS and Windows 7 Ultimate, Enterprise or Server 2008 R2 as Source - create a partitioned VHD and assign a drive letter (push Ctrl + Shift + V to use build in diskpart wrapper for this) - select the VHD drive as installation drive (make sure you boot drive ist a active primary partition on a physical disk) If you get an Antivirus warning from your AV software, please report it to them as a false positive and let them check it. Current Version: 3.9.4 WinNTSetup3.rar

    Yes The WofCompress tool for Win7 - win10 http://jfx.cwcodes.net/WofCompress/WofCompress.7z

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    What you mean with "won't let you"? It should display a warning, but let you continue.
  4. Most of us don't really need/use the WAIK to build our custom WinPE's. So there were always a problem to get the few tools like wimgapi, imagex or the WIM filter drivers. Attempts were made to use httpdisk to download files from inside the WAIK iso, but it was not a good solution as you still need to load hundreds of MB and it requires to install an unsigned driver. You even had to set your x64 Windows in testmode ... But now we came with a good solution: Our tool uses cURL winhttp functions provided by Homes32 to download only the needed bytes for the hugh WAIK ISO's. There is no need for admin rights and you only need to download 4-6 MB per choosen WAIK. GetWaikTools.zip (yes: always a link to the latest version, of course!). For command line: GetWaikTools -? old Versions
  5. Added a link on first post.

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Yes, a ini is always loaded if found. Either Winntsetup.ini or the one specified by -cfg parameter.
  7. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    No order does not matter, expect NT6 must be first one.
  8. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    WinNTSetup_x64.exe NT6 -source:%MYISO% -wimindex:1 -cfg:WinNTSetupHome.ini should do exactly that.
  9. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    No, if you set source in command line you must set wimindex there too.
  10. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    NONE option does not compress any file, but adds the wofadk.sys driver and copies the WimBootCompress.ini to System32 folder. So this new install can read WOF compressed files and is ready to be compressed later.
  11. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Ah, ok my mistake, seems it uses bcdboot.exe from your system32 directory and that one does not accept the firmware switch. I'll fix this later, but older version should work for you: http://jfx.square7.ch/WinNTSetup/WinNTSetup392.rar

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    The error comes from bcdboot.exe, see G:\Windows\WinNTSetup.log for more informations.
  13. Yeah, Defender now detects some of my tools a as virus. So MS blocked my entire outlook account Well new link to v18.10 on first page.

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    @blipton Make sure the 3 icons next to boot drive are green. @click-click Not sure what you mean with old icons? The tweak only removes cortana, task switch and people icons from taskbar. The 3 options you also have on the taskbar right click menu.

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    I have not problem with gimagex, it produces a correct wim file.
  16. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    It does not have the needed xml information and not even my fix for that seems to be working for this image. How did you made this WIM file
  17. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    It are 2 separate combo boxes, when you set ALL you mean this command. bcdboot C:\windows /s C: /f ALL
  18. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Why not use: WinNTSetup_x64.exe VHD-CREATE -file:H:\myVHD.vhd -size:16GB -type:fixedfast -label:"MY VHD" VhdTool2.0.zip
  19. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    I create the VHD manually and diskpart only to create the partition in this case. If you curious search for vhdtool and vhdxtool.

    OldNewExplorer 1.1.8

    @Tihiy MS remove the option to disable ImmersiveContextMenu in Windows 10 1809. It seems to be an easy fix for CDefView::_DoContextMenuPopup, but I guess we really need your skills for the CProperTreeHost::CreateHWNDInternal part. Can we get rid of the blurry menus with the next ONE release?
  21. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Use "Instant creation" option.
  22. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Hmm, the log file tells that there was a "F:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD" And a "F:\Boot\BCD" file.
  23. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    I would say, you already had this entry before and just deleted the old VHD.
  24. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Your right, if you use no tweaks and no other checkbox or command line, the only registry change is the drive letter.
  25. JFX

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Interesting yeah, but not so easy to implement. Not all tweaks are simple registry values. Also some are different depending on the Windows version. Removing the useless build-in Apps would not be possible on all Host OS, due to dism limitations: I'll consider it if I find a good way of doing it, but for now it's properly the best doing that with setupcomplete.cmd in $OEM$ folder. "Applying tweaks" sounds better than "Applying settings" or any idea?
