    Guys, my suggestion is 17:00 (5 PM) UTC. Please tell if this is OK time for you. You can check what that is in your time zone here:

    TF Live - Create a Windows 10 Creators Update Custom ISO

    The above link opens a page showing you the time in UTC (left) and your local time (right):

    The local time is based on current location of your computer, in 12 H format where it applies.

    OK geeks, let's do this:

    TF Live Workshop - Create a Custom Windows 10 Creators Update ISO

    A live Skype Event on Saturday, March 25th 2017 at 17:00 (5 PM) UTC. You can check the time in your time zone here: TF Live Workshop - Create a Custom Windows 10 Creators Update ISO

    The above link opens a page showing you event start time in UTC (left) and your local time (right), in screenshot example it shows that event starts at 18:00 (6 PM) my local CET. The local time is based on current location of your computer, in 12 H format where it applies:

    The Skype Event is open to anyone to join, you do not need to be a Ten Forums member, you do not need a Skype or Microsoft Account, you can join completely anonymously as guest. Of course it is recommended that when asked for event screen name you use your Ten Forums username.

    The event is estimated to take 90 minutes.

    Naturally you can just follow the demonstration and participate in discussion, but to get most of this event I recommend you to prepare for it as follows:

    1.) Download and install Windows ADK Insider Preview (Assessment and Deployment Kit). The latest version at the moment of writing this is build 15052 (ADK builds are not same than W10 builds):

    download

    Download is a 2.8 GB ISO image, save it first then mount the ISO (double click), run adksetup. You can of course install every component if you so wish but for our workshop only the component Deployment Tools is required:

    That includes the Windows SIM (System Image Manager), the tool we will need to build an answer file.

    2.) If you don't have a recent Windows 10 Insider Preview ISO image (15025 or later), download one for your preferred edition. Latest available for direct download at the moment is build 15058:

    download

    3.) Last download, a so called catalog (.clg) file we need in order to be able to create an answer file with Windows SIM. Select one for edition you will work with on our event:

    W10 Home W10 Pro W10 Education W10 Enterprise
    download download download download

    4.) One more optional step: install Windows 10 on a new virtual machine in your selected virtualisation platform. I recommend of course Hyper-V, see tutorial. When Windows setup after last restart arrives to region selection, shut down the VM. Do not select anything, just shut down or turn off the VM. We will continue from that point on Saturday.

    A nice way to shut down from OOBE Region selection is to press SHIFT + F10 to open Command Prompt and enter command shutdown -s -t 0 -f:

    In any case do not continue beyond Region selection!

    See you geeks on Saturday! I promise you, however complicated this with ADK and SIM and catalog files and answer files looks, it really is quite easy, logical and simple :)

    Link to event will be posted in this thread about half an hour before start.

    Uh, yeah, I know :) I always adjust my Windows clock to show, in addition to local time, Hawai'i time as well as UTC. So I'm well aware of the time zone diff when we are on DST as well as when we are not :)

    Normally 5pm is a good time for me, but sadly I have another commitment at that time on Saturday.
    I'm sure it will be a good and interesting session though. :)

    I hope we'll see you there :)

    I'm already preparing, creating a bunch of Hyper-V checkpoints to avoid unnecessary waiting in demonstration.

    Yeah, I had some trouble thinking what's the time in US as they "move to summer" earlier as we here in Europe, UTC having been now for a couple of weeks 4 hours ahead of East Coast US instead of normal 5 hours, and 7 hours ahead of West Coast US instead of normal 8 hours.

    Good we get back to "normal" on Sunday. Sometimes these time zones make me feel quite confused :)
