    Gonna Say this Rescue media Does Not contain >

    however when I try to use mbr2gpt in his rescue WinPE it doesn't recognize the tool
    Although I do Have It in PE and see no need for it...
    MS is using that Tool to UPGRADE PC's with MBR Disks to GPT Disks if PC Compatible
    Yet Another unknown windows 10 upgrade feature

    Here are 2 batch Files for use with the mbr2gpt tool > place them in the same folder as exe...
    The batch will validate and report any disk type errors before conversion
    The mbr2gpt.exe can be found windows/system32 folder beginning with version 1703 up

    Windows PE Version (Run in PE)

    Here are 3 versions of Firefox that I used in WinPE
    All Versions Just Tested Within Same PE Session
    version 52.5.2.6549 > Mozilla Firefox ESR works, Video and Audio, without Flash Player
    version 55.0.2.6435 > Mozilla Firefox works, Video and Audio, without Flash Player
    version 57.0.2.6549 > Firefox Quantum works Video, No Audio, without Flash Player
    Since the windows enviroment did not change,
    there has to be a missing file dependancie for Firefox Quantum

    WMP works great - although no wav file association

    We had this problem with FF V. 47 before and Wintypes.dll was missing. I added this dll to V. 57 and still no go.

    WMP works great - although no wav file association
    We can add the file association for wav later on. I also have updated the K-lite codec which include the tweak tool, I'll send you a copy. In order for WMP to display subtitle for MP4, MKV. You have to disable Media Foundation.

    Like I said it has to be a Quantum Issue with a different file requirement...
    As all prior versions work with the current file requirements...
    Without adding Flash player....... And Flash Player No Help to Quantum, either..

    added file association > RegWrite,HKLM,0x1,Tmp_Software\Classes\.wav,,WMP

    Do Windows 10 Recovery Tools include a tool like this
    No. You have to boot memtest - that is the point. You can't run it from another OS - not Windows, PE or anything else.

    See their site for details

    We had this problem with FF [..]
    There's a pretty cool user.js for Firefox, moved to GitHub after being hosted on gHacks:

    Code:
    https://www.ghacks.net/2017/04/13/ghacks-user-js-goes-github/
    Code:
    https://github.com/ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js/
    It does require quite a bit of customization, from the default, depending on the need(s). Something like Notepad++ can be used for editing, where its JavaScript language can be selected for highlighting the code.

    a litle error creating the iso 32/64 of the tools


    Hi everyone

    here at TentForums is my first post.
    I don't know if someone already had the same problem.
    ok I dowload both ISOs and I want to make a boot USB pen, because I still have several computers with win 10 32 bits...

    with the small utility made by Kyhi, I run the 6 option in the menu of the ModifyWinPESE.cmd

    it works as suppose, but when the oscdimg is creating the final ISO file with 2Gb, it gives me a error 3
    (it canīt create the iso...)
    and of course I have in that drive more than 400Gb of free space..

    this machine have an intel 4 cpu, 8 GB, Win 10 Home 1709 (16299.125)
    uefi bios

    if any one knows an answer, or is already answered please point that to me

    tanks in advanced
