  1. The following screenshots come from a 3440x1440 screen with 175% scaling, which is the "middle" setting, going to 200% or 225% worsens the issue. Going down to 150% makes it less noticeable. My screen is a 34'' so it does not really need scaling (one of the main reasons I bought it), but 27'' and smaller 4k-ish res screens will. I seem to have failed at copy-pasting screenshots into Paint, some of them will have be cropping over an older image, and I noticed only at the end when I was uploading. Since they still show the issue I didn't invest the time to take them again. Se
  2. not even pageviews? Am I blacklisted or something? EDIT: now it shows some views. Whew! Was getting worried.
  3. All times I integrated languages in my AIO installation isos, there is no option to install windows 7 in that language, and the language files can only be used by Ultimate version, so yeah, not cool for people not owning such expensive licenses (and the usual suspects pirating stuff). I found ways to add them to the installation options by tweaking boot.wim (and another file) as from here and Can this be added to WinToolkit? Or, is this already in WinToolkit and I'm too dumb to use it right? Please tell me how to pull it off then.
  4. What about checking how much ram there is in the machine and if more than 4 GB it gives a popup (that can be disabled from options) suggesting you to move Toolkit's temp to RAMdisk, and maybe with some useful links to a tutorial or whatever?
  5. Yesterday it integrated a bunch of 350 drivers + 400 or so in a Starter wim without errors. Still have to test if it installs though.
  6. Yup, the creator of WinNTSetup added the same functionality to his program. He even gives credit to Fujianabc (<-the guy I was talking about in the OP).
  7. Not critical, but something that may be a cool addition when you have time. Basically a function that allows you to install Win 7/8 from the iso (or whatever) to an HDD, be it "internal" (= in a hotswap bay) or USB HDD. From within a working OS (Win 7/8 or XP). Maybe with the option of running sysprep afterwards to prepare the thing to be placed on another machine. I found a guy that did write a bunch of scripts that do it. here
  8. I enabled verbose boot instead. I like seeing lists of stuff being loaded much much more than any animation. :grin: Btw, the artcile is wrong. There is no performance hit unless you tick "boot log" as well.
  9. if you just want to save files from a dead OS, I think it's better Linux Puppy. Loads faster, has all drivers needed, is immune to most malware. Otherwise you can try SARDU which is in spanish as well. I've also seen around torrents of a bootable USB-ready Windows XP. Google Traducción en español: (lo siento si es malo) si lo que desea guardar los archivos de un sistema operativo muerto, yo creo que es mejor Puppy Linux. Carga más rápido, tiene todos los controladores necesarios, es inmune a la mayoría del malware. De lo contrario, puede intentar Sardu que es en español también. También he vis
  10. I really suggest to try Offline NT Password & Registry Editor instead of reinstalling. It nukes the passwords in less than 5 minutes, does not waste any time trying to find them like say ophcrack. It worked like a charm every time I had to clear Win passwords.Won't prevent it from happening again, but will likely solve the issue at hand. BTW, if you aren't inclined to burn it to a CD, you can always use YUMI.
  11. No. Was not enabled. Ad for "tiny" things I mean updates below 1 mb of size. Trying again with 50 random "tiny" updates and the LDR/QFE Mode enabled. And everything on Real Time from its own options. It takes between 1 min and 30 secs to integrate most of those 50 sub-mb updates. Although some did take around two minutes. CPU graph from task manager shows some activity every now and then, but for most of the time it sits at 10% or so. EDIT: Even unticking the Check Compatibility box the above does not change.
  12. Mh, didn't notice them but did the same from Task manager. When set on Real Time (or whatever the highest priority setting is called in english) from its own option panel (and checking from Task Manager confirms it's on Real Time) it runs faster on some tasks like loading/unloading WIMS and when loading addons/updates/drivers in the wizard, but when actually adding something to WIMs (addons updates and drivers) it runs the same (uses near to no resources and runs kinda slow). I enabled the option that tells me what files it is working with, and I see that it remains on even tiny things for 10+
  13. No problem. As long as this does not open popups Avira-style whenever it feels like it, I'm fine with some ads.
  14. In case you want it translated in italian, I can do it. Although I'm clueless of what you're doing here with loginvovchyk.
  15. you mean the one called "freeram" or somesuch? I was under the impression that was something alike to firemin, there only to stop eventual memory leaks (you know, new code, limited amount of testing...). I never touched it for this reason (was always ticked), but I fail to find it again. :shifty: EDIT: Aha! found the little bugger as a standalone download from Legolash! seems like I was right, it just frees up unused ram (which is critical to not trash your machine if you run stuff with gargantuan of memory leaks like Firefox). I'll give it a try to see if the dang libreoffice is full of leaks
  16. I hoped for a more automated operation. With the average company machine with win Xp I use this thing (integrated in the USB installer I install XP with) that detects hardware and installs only the needed drivers from driverpack.I guess I will have to turn the thing into an addon for Win Toolkit. :g: And see if it runs reliably for Win 7 since I never tested it on Win 7.
  17. Performance-wise you aren't going to get a lot imho, but you can easily shave off a quite a few gigs from the installed stuff in your HDD. But really, unless you are on a SSD it's rarely worth the risk. I mean even 20 GB worth of stuff is nothing for the average modern HDD or SSD.Besides, if the only thing you want to do is improve performance while allowing yourself to revert back if needed, just disable them. don't hack the ISO
  18. This is a very looked-after feature as I said, I'd suggest to say this aloud (i.e. add this feature to documentation) if you want to attract more attention.I stopped using DVDs for installation the moment I managed to fit a XP on a USB drive. I don't plan to use DVD again unless in emergencies. Since I can only legally install the Windows 7 kind they have (or can afford) the licence for, and I had quite a bit of netbooks and assembled tons of cheap desktops, I need an AIO with Starter and Home Basic as well.I was pirating everything I would have just needed Ultimate x86 and x64 wth updates an
  19. Yeah, because I can always totally explain how every OS and software I install works down to the slightiest detail. They are all closed boxes and this one makes no difference. I work on servers, workstations, manager's laptops, and all kinds of private-owned computers. I have absolutely no idea on how any of the machines I work with could seriously harm anyone. Other than blowing up for no reason anyway.For your education, all critical machinery I've seen runs on either its proprietary firmware (all hospital stuff for example) or on code written by the technicians setting it up (most industria
  20. What kind of reasoning is that? :g: If you need to write a document do you code your own Word-like application or download LibreOffice?For the same reason no sane guy is going to waste weeks in learning how to do it from scratch, then writing scripts and debugging the damn things in his spare time when there is a program that is so much better than a makeshift bunch of scripts and is done by people that have years of experience in doing this kinds of things. I have yet to see if it does what I need. Then we can talk of sharing loot. Smaller companies I usually work for don't have the bandwith
  21. I think you are overreacting a bit. I said I wasn't sure, and this detail isn't stated anywhere in the guides so I had no way to know. I'd like to hear Legolash2o on this too though, no offence.Anyway, good to know. This program is beyond awesome then. Every other tool I looked at was like I said. Something like that is useful for technicians and sysadmins, since with a single USB device (actually a couple dozen if you are into serious businness) you can fix from netbooks to desktops way faster than with a DVD.But seriously, a program like this is bound to attract people that find fun doing i
  22. While the program is doing WIM manipulation (adding stuff to WIM with the AIO integrator), I've noticed that it leaves plenty of CPU power and RAM for other tasks even on my old machine. This is cool because it allows me to run it while doing other stuff, but.... What about adding an option that boosts the program's speed by dramatically increasing CPU load? This way if someone wants to run the program overnight, it can be run faster by sacrificing multitasking capability which is unnecessary if the user is asleep.
  23. Since doing WIM manipulation tasks takes a while, what about adding a function to save the current progress so you can shut down the program and then resume later? Would be a welcome addition for those that want to do lots of stuff but cannot keep their PC on for multiple days.
  24. this poster confirms that the times add up as assumed.Given my crappy hardware (Pentium D, 1 gig of ram) it takes a completely ridicolous amount of time to cycle through all the WIMs doing its job.
