For those running Version 2004 who don’t want to wait for 20H2 to go public, a very fast enablement package CAB will get them upgraded. My test machine did it in under a minute from start to finish. Amazing!
After using DISM Add-Package to install a Cumulative Update from a CAB file, I find the update is not shown in Settings/Update & Security/Show update history. It does show up in Programs and Features/View installed updates, though.
Some users (and online publications) are reporting errors when running DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image. WindowsLatest suggests a possible fix, and asserts that the June 9 Patch Tuesday release should address such problems. All I can see is “We’ll see.”
Oho! Sometimes, it’s nice to be proved correct, even if it takes a while. Last October, I posted at Win10.Guru about a “PortableBaseLayer” partition. At that time, I reported that “one theory about this partition is tied to Reserved Storage for Windows Update.” On February 26, an MS DOCS item appeared that illuminates the whole
Working with WinRE in Windows 10, I learn that recovery media is a snapshotting mechanism that will restore your system to its state when the snapshot was made. I can do better than that, with Macrium Reflect.
As I look back at two years at Win10.Guru, I reflect on successes with the Admin Toolkit and DISM series, and somewhat less enthusiasm for news and musings from readers. I resolve to offer more of interest and engagement in 2020. Happy New Year, All!
In my opinion one of the characteristics of good code, be it a batch file or script or an application, is clear and precise on-screen instructions to its intended user. I recommend adding enough remarks for those reading the source code, and really doing your best to make output clear, understandable and readable. I will
DISM is maybe the most versatile and useful of all native Windows tools (a subjective personal opinion). In this post, I use it to create USB install media containing Pro and Enterprise editions of Windows 10 version 1903 (19H1), version 1909 (19H2), and Insider Preview build 19002. All three versions, a total of six editions,
After trying all the conventional tricks, I learn that a chronic .NET Framework install error is just another one of the many Windows 10 ills that an in-place upgrade repair can fix. Thank goodness!
The easiest, most convenient method to use different versions and editions of Windows 10 in dual or multi boot scenario is through a native boot virtual hard disk. No partitioning or virtualization is required: just create a VHD, install Windows on it, and when done and it’s no longer needed, delete the VHD file. This
