    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    As always, I cheated

    There's no way to make screenshots from first phase of Windows installation (before OOBE), or from PC / Windows boot phase. You just have to "cheat" in every tutorial and / or video showing Windows setup or boot.

    As a Macrium Reflect user, I always have quite recent system images available. With free Macrium viBoot tool (see TenForums viBoot tutorial) I can mount and use any Macrium system image as a Hyper-V virtual machine, allowing me to run an exact copy of my physical Windows installation in Hyper-V.

    To get boot menu screenshot, I mounted my most recent system image in viBoot as a virtual machine:

    Now I have a 100% identical copy of my laptop running as a VM:

    To get screenshot of boot menu, I simply restart the viBoot VM and take screenshot when boot menu is shown:

    Cheating is the key to good screenshots

    Thanks, Kari!! It's not cheating. Rather....creative documentation!

    Actually, one of the good things about videoing a vm is that you record all the cursor movements. A lot of recording tools do not record the cursor movement on host pc.

    I have to say my experiences have been exactly the opposite!

    All screen capture tools I have used to capture video can always capture the cursor / pointer on host, but as many of my videos handle installation / customisation and such where I have to use a VM to get something captured that would normally not be possible, I have found out that only some very few screen capture tools capture the VM pointer, too. There are not many alternatives available if you want to capture pointer on VM.

    I am using Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 SP2 and VSDC capture tools to make videos, only two I have found that can capture VM pointer.

    Does it capture pointer in virtual machines?

    Oh now I am puzzled as I always used to be able to do it iirc. Maybe grey matter is failing again - lol.

    EDIT: I have come up with a cursor recording solution that I think will work with any pc or recording software using touchmousepointer. As I have never seen this posted anywhere, I think it qualifies for inclusion in the "you saw it here first" thread.

    Tips and tricks - You saw it first on TenForums! Solved - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums
