    The weighing of the positives and negatives

    I Second that motion!, I am perfectly happy with my present dual boot setup with Windows 7 and 8.1 and see absolutely no need to jump ship for now just for the sake of having the newest OS. ~DP

    W10 answer file

    I have not done a ua install of W10 yet but normally I just specify the image name of the OS from the wim and add it to the image install section then value, here is example of 8 WMC that works for me. <!--SELECT OS--> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallFrom> <MetaData wcm:action="add"> <Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key> <Value>Windows 8 Pro with Media Center</Value> </MetaData> </InstallFrom> </OSImage> </ImageInstall>

  8. Good info guys, so bottom line is that you can't do a "offline activation" (unless Microsoft has made a provision for a phone activation) but must have a active working internet connection, similar to Office 2010 and above to connect to the MS servers. ~DP

    Also if you don't want to mess with the imageres.dll file you could just add your own Windows 7 or custom desktop icons to that .theme file as your default as well. ~DP

    Windows 10 DEVELOPMENT

    Yes its always been the case to: 1. Install Only on a test machine 2. Install Only if you know what the heck your doing and don't wine if you don't and it's not working. Sure there will be a installer in the future for those that don't want to deal with the manual install method.. ~DP

  13. If you have a Working .xml file now perhaps you can post it here so that it may help others with similar issues. ~DP
