    Andre I understand that some prefer to swap drives, but avoiding using Windows setup, and running the application of a disk image within a working windows is little different to performing a restore of a system imaged with Macrium, and In my hands anyway, just as safe, and quick.
    No doubt about that. What's the difference between your way of deploying new install and mounting ISO,*and starting setup in sources (or somewhere... forgot it)?

    The Imagex process just applies the image to the designated formattted drive, does no size or system checks, does not attempt to connect to the network, or any hardware, and does not affect or alter the boot menu or BCD store. It only affects the designated partition.

    It's exactly the same process that Windows To Go installations were done when Windows 8 had the ability to be installed like that, except onto a hard drive partition rather than a usb drive - see: Windows 8 To Go - Setup on a USB Flash Drive or USB Disk.

    Its a bit like expanding a zip file to an empty folder, but it is a complete Windows on a "c:" drive to an empty partition. And the user is in total control -unless the wim is corrupt, or you run out of disk space, then the apply process fails.

    On a setup iso there are several Setup.exe files, one in the root for booted DVDs or USB setups, and in the sources folder: Setup.exe, setupprep.exe. setupplatform.exe possibly -some handle installations, some upgrades, and others take you further along in the setup process, but they all like to examine the system so that they cannot mess it up too much. But often they do...

    I'm getting a runtime error with File Explorer. Is anyone else getting this?

    Think I get it. Looks interesting, although I'm not the real customer for it.*Geek factor is too high for me

    I'm flummoxed, because it wasn't happening right after installation.

    No problems here yet with the x86, Wynona. SFC /scannow and DISM /offline /restorehealth &c., or a clean reinstall?

    Andre, did I mention how quick it is - no SSDs involved, but there is a commandline involved... and if you need to add this to a different boot menu there's also BCDBoot x\windows to type in scary.

    Never seen that one before Wynona. Do you run CCleaner? Cleaned some registry entries?

    Wynona: from : Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runime Error! Program: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe

    Found in the logs that .NET framework is the source of my problem... uninstalled and re-installed .NET framework. IT resolved my issues!! Hoorah!
    This user, Nat C., found that event logs had recorded this as .NET origins. However, others with the error weren't successful with this fix.


    I begin to see problems - Note that the taskbar seems to have 8 active program groups, including good old MSPaint, but look at taskview - just 2 open apps, not a paintbrush amongst them:

    then the chrome peek toast appears when I point to the settings icon!

    Notifications bring up the "obscure shower screen" on the right:

    Restarting Explorer from task manager brings back sanity, and things are OK for a while, but that's not the tab in task manager I took the screenshot of! It must have jumped to hide the shameful, naughty Explorer.exe
