  1. What do you mean by Internet Driver, are you talking about your Ethernet or your WiFi driver?

    To find the latest compatible driver you need to know the hardware id, you can find this in the device manager.

    There are tools you can use to mount your Windows install media and integrate drivers.

     

    BTW I do not recommend you switch from Windows 10 to 7, this is very risk as Windows 7 will no longer receive any updates and this will leave you vulnerable.

  2. My PC specs are barely compatible these newer games, Ryzen 5 2400G, Radeon RX580 8GB OC, 32GB RAM 2933MHz XMP

    Also games are very expensive, I would have to wait for some time to go by and wait for discounts on the games and also maybe upgrade but to previous generation hardware.

  3. Its not legal (of course,) the KMS activators you are referring to install a DLL/fake KMS emulator on your machine, this can be detected/cleaned by anti virus and break the activation... Now if you have a KMS emulated on a outside device, Windows/Office do not know if its real or not.

  4. You can take a look at my Autounattend.xml I have sanitized. it YOU just change the /IMAGE/INDEX Value to the number of the image you want to install in install.wim

    My XML does not automatically format your drive and install, it will however create a local administrator account and auto login once. It also creates and sets a new Ultimate Performance power plan and registers some of my shell extension DLLs (also schedule PC shutdown at 0400)

  5. Hello Fellow members,

    Been away for some time, but now that I have some more free time on my hands maybe I will drop by more often and help out whenever I can.

    To preemptively answer the obvious question: no, I am no longer doing repacks but I will happily help any repacker on the forum if they ask (just allow me to clean up my inbox as my private message limit has been exceeded)

  6. Sad to hear, since WPI is even more relevant now in the post XP era than ever! (I use it daily)

    If people only knew what it was capable of maybe more would use it, especially power users, IT admins, etc... I mean I am able to set up WPI in a way that it detects what needs and does not need updating/installing by simply glancing at the install choices, running only the compatible installers on a specific OS

    prog[pn]=['Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable'];
    uid[pn]=['VCREDIST2K15'];
    dflt[pn]=['yes'];
    forc[pn]=['no'];
    cat[pn]=['Microsoft'];
    pfro[pn]=['no'];
    cmds[pn]=['wmic product where "name like \'Microsoft Visual C++ 2015%%\' and version < \'14.0.24406\'" call uninstall /nointeractive','{x64} "%wpipath%\\Install\\VC\\2015\\amd64\\Minimum\\vc_runtimeMinimum_x64.msi" /qn','{x64} "%wpipath%\\Install\\VC\\2015\\amd64\\Additional\\vc_runtimeAdditional_x64.msi" /qn','"%wpipath%\\Install\\VC\\2015\\x86\\Minimum\\vc_runtimeMinimum_x86.msi" /qn','"%wpipath%\\Install\\VC\\2015\\x86\\Additional\\vc_runtimeAdditional_x86.msi" /qn'];
    cond[pn]=['getOSvernum()=="5.0"&&getSPver()>=3||getOSvernum()=="6.0"&&getSPver()>=2||getOSvernum()>="6.1"'];
    gcond[pn]=['getArch()=="x86"&&RegKeyValue("HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\DevDiv\\VC\\Servicing\\14.0\\RuntimeMinimum\\Version")>="14.0.24406"&&RegKeyValue("HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\DevDiv\\VC\\Servicing\\14.0\\RuntimeAdditional\\Version")>="14.0.24406"||getArch()=="AMD64"&&RegKeyValue("HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\DevDiv\\VC\\Servicing\\14.0\\RuntimeMinimum\\Version")>="14.0.24406"&&RegKeyValue("HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\DevDiv\\VC\\Servicing\\14.0\\RuntimeAdditional\\Version")>="14.0.24406"&&RegKeyValue("HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\\Microsoft\\DevDiv\\VC\\Servicing\\14.0\\RuntimeMinimum\\Version")>="14.0.24406"&&RegKeyValue("HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\\Microsoft\\DevDiv\\VC\\Servicing\\14.0\\RuntimeAdditional\\Version")>="14.0.24406"'];
    pn++;

    I hide obsolete stuff like .net 4.x installer on Windows 8 and above like so:

    prog[pn]=['.NET Framework 4.6'];
    uid[pn]=['DOTNETFX46'];
    dflt[pn]=['yes'];
    forc[pn]=['no'];
    cat[pn]=['Microsoft'];
    pfro[pn]=['no'];
    cmds[pn]=['{x64} "%wpipath%\\Install\\dotNETfx\\netfx_Full_x64.msi" /qn','{x86} "%wpipath%\\Install\\dotNETfx\\netfx_Full_x86.msi" /qn'];
    cond[pn]=['getOSvernum()>="6.0"&&getOSvernum()<="6.1"'];
    gcond[pn]=['RegKeyExists("HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\NET Framework Setup\\NDP\\v4\\Full")'];
    picf[pn]=['"%wpipath%\\Graphics\\Logos\\dotNETfx.png"'];
    picw[pn]=['0'];
    pich[pn]=['0'];
    textl[pn]=['Right'];
    pn++;

    I think Kel WPI only needs some promotion, maybe put some advanced how to videos on youtube.
