    Windows 10 IoT

    This might be worth taking a look at, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/...(v=ws.10).aspx It works with stock install media. I use it to add OEM info to the system page, make model, OEM logo. I only do just vey basic stuff. It can do a lot more though.

    Well, just tried doing a complete restore from the recovery drive I created and it failed. Didn't pay much attention to the error at the end. It's a birthday present for my wife in about 9 days and I am just going to move her existing installation over to this computer anyway, but was trying to make sure I had all the proper hardware drivers saved. The fingerprint reader shows up in device manager but Windows 10 does not recognize it for login and the smart card reader that seems to be installed does not show up in device manager at all and does nothing when I put my military CAC in it. She probably wouldn't use the fingerprint reader anyway and definitely not the smart card reader.

    Otherwise it is a great performing laptop and will be a big step up from what she is used to!

    see if that works...
    I think that the sort of apps typically in a .ppkg wouldn't install by double-clicking - I think that sort of .ppkg needs to be applied at install-time.

    The other option not mentioned is to use the Windows ICD, find the WIM for the relevant version of Windows, import the .ppkg into the ICD , and then use the ICD to create a USB which will clean-install Windows when you boot it.

    However I notice this option is being deleted with the ICD version which corresponds to the Windows 10 version 1703, and I found the USB very heavy-handed; in particular when you boot the USB, it just clean-installs Windows; it doesn't ask any questions or allow any user interaction. Or it just fails altogether.

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    Extract the Apps.ppkg with 7zip

    The apps.ppkg is nothing more then a custom.wim (OEM customizations, Drivers, Apps, etc..)

    You can even mount the apps.ppkg by renaming to apps.wim

    Just extracted the Apps.ppkg from my new Dell as a test with 7z

    Thanks! I'll give that a try!
