    Windows 10 x86 14383 Insider Pro and Core 10240

    Here are a couple of tips regarding firstly, obtaining WAIK tools for Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, without a lengthy full download of the whole Windows Automated Installation Kits.

    The second tip regards extracting files from ISO, and many other file images without mounting them as virtual optical drives.

    To get all these versions (no more than about 30MB total) takes no longer than a few minutes, on an average broadband connection.

    Download the free utility: GetWaikTools by JFX, a 7z file of 281KB extracts to an executable file of 293KB:

    83 - Download ImageX, BCDBoot and other WAIK tools - RMPrepUSB

    Secondly, to open Image files Like .ISO, .WIM, .SWM, .CAB, .VHD, .DMG, etc., and compressed executables, .MSI, .EXE, and many more, all you need is 7-Zip, a well established and respected free utility by Igor Pavlov:

    The 9.20 stable version is available for x86 and x64 versions. I have long found that the beta versions are very stable too, now at version 15.05 which can handle many NTFS file features when unpacking
    The current version stands at 15.14, and also handles ESD files!
    .WIM files, like symbolic links, which were not possible before.

    I am just about to try installing Windows 10 10130, from the downloaded .ISO using only 7-Zip to open the .ISO file and then \sources\Install.wim and unpack the image 1 (Pro version of Windows 10) to a clean partition. I will report back in due course. There were unknown problems. 7-zip often warns that it finds irregularities in WIM images, but opens them all the same.

    Windows 7

    Hi There,

    This helped me to get in the right direction of why my brand new USB stick of genuine Windows 10 was not booting on my PC ...
    I found the issue was it wsa a USB 3 stick and my pc is old school. So I basically used this tutorial to create a new bootable usb HDD stick and copied all of my files on the 3 stick onto the 2 stick .... now it loads ... and then gets into the setup phase of the nlack screen and then right as it finished loading the files ... it fails. I have pulled the SSD drive out and completely formatted the drive and removed the 2 partitions that it had created ... tried it in both 32 and 64 bit modes .

    Any ideas ..

    comes up with the following:
    windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
    To solve the problem:
    1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
    2. choose your language settings, and then click "Next"
    3. Click "repair your computer"

    If you do not have this disk .... blah blah,,, blah
    File: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
    Status 0xc0000225
    Info: The application of operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors

    What happens about WTG activation if I already have W10 activated on my usual PC?

    It would need a new product key. Otherwise, they will both eventually get deactivated.

    Hi there,

    First of all no need to download whole AIK kit for just imagex.exe
    Imegex.exe can get from MS web site. Here for x86 and here for x64
    Second thing is; Windows 8 and 10 have allready create virtual driver capability: ISO and IMG File - Mount or Unmount in Windows 10
    An info note can be nice

    Best regards
